The Consequences of Liberalism
Another small business in San Francisco closed after the city raised its minimum wage to $15/hour. After Oakland raised its minimum wage, child-care workers saw their work hours cut so that their employers can save money. What liberals don't understand is that money doesn't grow on trees. People have fixed budgets. If expenses increase, they are likely to look into savings, such as cutting the work hours of their employees. The Obama regime is illegally enforcing about 1,800 regulations. In light of the disaster that is the Obama regime, it is not surprising to see a Gallup poll showing that only 23% of Americans are satisfied with the present state of affairs in the country, the lowest level measured since 1979, during the Carter Administration. People who trust Obama to manage government effectively collapsed from a high of 75% in December, 2008 to 43%. Finally, this is a ranking of the states in order of their business climate.
