You won’t hear this on the news.
The Job Creators Network Foundation, a small business advocacy group is pushing back against Amazon’s push for a $15 minimum wage.
The Job Creators Network Foundation launched a campaign this week to expose Amazon’s efforts to lobby the government to pass a $15-an-hour federal minimum wage, which the group is calling a potential “deathblow to the thousands of small businesses already hanging on by a thread.”
The foundation, which is a branch of the Job Creators Network small business advocacy group, argues Amazon’s backing of the wage hike — through lobbyist groups and op-eds — is in fact a “thinly veiled” effort to shutter small business competitors. The group believes that after a year of pandemic shutdowns, most small businesses are teetering on the the brink of collapse and that such a wage increase could be the death knell for a significant number of these businesses.
On Thursday, the foundation is running a full page ad in The Wall Street Journal to promote its campaign.
“Amazon executives may be fooling the mainstream media into believing their push for a higher minimum wage is to help workers, but small businesses aren’t falling for their tricks,” foundation Elaine Parker said. “More than doubling the federal minimum wage will crush small business competitors across the country and could eliminate 2.7 million jobs. This campaign is just one of many ways the Job Creators Network Foundation is following through on its mission to educate Americans about the real world impact bad government policies have on businesses, their employees and the economy.”
This is the dirty little secret the left doesn’t want you to hear about.
They claim they support the minimum wage because they support the little guy. In fact, they have millions of Americans swindled into believing minimum wage helps people struggling Americans.
None of that is even close to the case.
In fact, the truth is that the minimum wage only serves the big businesses.
Why you might ask?
Well, of course, Amazon makes enough money to give their workers a $15 minimum wage. A small mom and pop store doesn’t. So, basically, a high minimum wage kills competition. It allows for monopolies to form.
Remember the left really serves their corporate friends and they always will.
