Why do cons say we can't raise the minimum wage because prices will rise, but we can bring jobs back from China and prices won't rise?

Do they actually believe people will work in manufacturing for minimum wage and no benefits?

    Raising the minimum wage means more money for the lower income people. Low income people spend what money they have. If they have more money to spend, they spend more money. Businesses benefit because they are selling more products and making better profits. With better profits they can hire more workers or raise salaries so the lower income people have even more money to spend and everyone benefits.

    Giving tax cuts to rich people means they squirrel away more money in tax havens and do not put it back into the country. Everyone loses.

    If you want to boost the economy, give more money to the poor. It works every time, but the rich conservatives don't see it that way and as they run the USA, it doesn't happen.

    I don't know of a single person who believes that. The only people who complain about buying more expensive american made goods are liberals who hate america and want to support an authoritarian state like China.

    Most millennial don’t want to work. I am unfortunately working a job in Wichita and downtown is full of drug addicted millennials loafing around and begging. I can’t wait until the job is over and I can go home
