Dem Rep. Khanna: ‘We Don’t Want’ Small Businesses That Can’t Afford $15 Minimum Wage

Pam Key 21 Feb 2021

Representative Ro Khanna (D-CA) declared Sunday on CNN’s “Inside Politics” that we should not want “low-wage businesses” when pressed on small businesses who would struggle under a federal mandate to pay employees $15 an hour.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office predicted raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2025 would cost 1.4 million Americans their jobs over the next four years.

Anchor Abby Phillip said, “I know that you feel very strongly like many progressives about the minimum wage issue. Right now, at the same time, businesses, both large and small, are struggling in this pandemic economy, more than 9 million jobs have been lost in the last year, and they still aren’t back, and the problem is particularly acute in industries like retail and foodservice, which are more likely to pay minimum wage. I think the question that a lot of Republicans are posing and perhaps some moderate Democrats is timing. Is now the right time to increase it to $15? I should say the bill has stages, of course, but immediately it would go up about 30% right now. Is now the right time to do that?”

Khanna said, “Abby, it’s absolutely the right time to give working Americans a raise. Let’s look at the facts. Amazon raised their wage to $15 nationally, not regionally. They have more jobs today. It didn’t hurt job creation or business. Target followed. They also did it nationally, more jobs.”

Dems just don't want small businesses period.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Words fail me.  This is what you get when you combine idiocy with arrogance.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

Exactly. Small businesses are too numerous and varied to control and plunder. Khanna just expressed openly what Dem leaders normally speak privately among themselves.

Fascism, the govt. controls labor by requiring workers to be a part of organizations the govt oversees and the govt. controls business through regulations and govt. oversight. The left doesn't want an independent small businesses.

These politicians are not idiots. They are just unamerican.

Also small businesses tend to reject unions...something else the Dems hate.

It's rare for them to say the quiet parts out loud.  But when they do say it...we should believe them.

Bingo.  They want everyone to be an employee of a large corporation or a government agency so the government can be presented as the "good" mediator between worker and capitalist.  Small business owners and employees who personally know their employer, while they exist, are a permanent source of opposition to their fascist schemes.  (Yes, fascist, even if they call themselves "socialists", they're not going to get rid of wealth concentrations, so long as the plutocrats serve as enforcers for their social and political programs.  Whether they know it or not, the model for the Democrat Left is now Mussolini, not Lenin, not Nordic "socialism", not European social democracy -- except to the extent that last has also started imitating Il Duce.)
And when they behead your own people in the wars which are to come, then you will know what this was all about.

Also harder to control smaller business via laws and regulatory pressures.  The dim overlords are aiming for 100% captitulation.

Add to that the fact that these idiots have never owned or managed a business having to balance product and labor costs while maintaining a customer base and profit. All that people like Rep. Khanna know is that the taxpayer will always have to pay their payroll no matter how incompetent they are.................................as long as they can get enough people dumber than them to keep voting them in.
And her asinine comment about Amazon proves that she doesn't even comprehend what is happening in America today. Are they and AOC related?

From the article....

 "Let’s look at the facts. Amazon raised their wage to $15 nationally, not regionally"

It's painful to see that those who pass laws have not even the remote understanding of basic economics.

Of course Amazon can do it. They are a large corporation. It's the small businesses that will get hit. Many of them minority owned

This once again proves what I've always said about leftists...policy decisions are based on how that policy makes them feel verses the consequences of said policy. The following statement from this moron proves it

"It’s fair for people to be making what they’re producing. I think $15 is very reasonable in this country"

Notice the words "I think" and "It's fair?"

I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

It seems the politicians  with the most unworkable plans come mostly
from either New York or California

That's why I wouldn't bet on Newsome or Cuomo to be voted out despite Cuomo's nursing home debacle and Newsome's recall effort

Don't want small businesses?  After Obama bragged about all those, too good for you, McDonalds jobs created while he was in office?
If we could just get democrats to treat Americans like they do the Chinese, who under democrat favoritism, rose up from the bottom of the barrel in the world market to the top.  Of course they would have to let Americas manufacture and pollute like the Chinese still do, of course. Yes, coal is cheap energy!  Ask someone from West Virginia!
