Oh, dear. Sen. Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren (D-Mass.) posed that question during a senate hearing last week. Wonder where she got that idea?

No, really.

“If we started in 1960, and we said that, as productivity goes up — that is, as workers are producing more — then the minimum wage is going to go up the same. And, if that were the case, the minimum wage today would be about $22 an hour. So, my question, Mr. Dube, is what happened to the other $14.75?”

That Twitter user had no words, but others sure do! Take it away, Twitter.
