GOP reminded everyone on Twitter that thanks to Biden’s inflation, 60% of workers are living paycheck-to-paycheck.
Gosh, thanks, Mr. President.
60% of workers report living paycheck-to-paycheck

Now, we’re not entirely sure why AOC thought this was a good time to try and dunk on the GOP considering how much we all make fun of her for having a degree in economics but clearly knowing very little about it but here we are.
Twitchy fodder, baby.
And yet y’all still voted against raising the minimum wage https://t.co/tFkTHf2OAO

So says the economic genius.
You can guess how this went over:
We support a maximum wage of $0 for IRS and Federal Reserve employees.
And $8 for you, just so you can pay @elonmusk for your blue checkmark.

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
Because the real minimum wage is zero. You're not helping people by outlawing their employment or getting their hours cut.

Imagine not understanding basic economics like AOC.

And they won't be able to afford to eat at the McD's they work at anymore.

Maybe because making it more expensive to hire entry-level workers is not a great way to support entry-level workers.

Ding ding ding.
It’s math, Sandy.
The worker has control over the job they take, the market determines the value of the job not the employer.

Democrats have supported illegal immigration for over a century, which artificially depresses wages. Why pay an American wages commensurate with an American standard of living when you can pay a socialist serf fleeing oppression and hiding from the law, far, far less?

You have no idea what you’re talking about.
