Rep. Donald Norcross (“Biden’s Good Case for a $15 Minimum Wage,” Letters, Oct. 12) bases his argument for an increase in the minimum wage, in part, on the cost of apartment rent in New Jersey. He has no one to blame but himself. Rents are driven by high taxes (sales, income, real estate, energy, employment, etc.) and restrictions on building new housing imposed by politicians like himself. Cut the taxes and red tape and rents will follow. PIF世界播

众议员唐纳德·诺克罗斯(“拜登要求15美元最低工资的好理由”,10月12日,Letters)提出提高最低工资的理由,部分是基于新泽西州的公寓租金成本。除了他自己,他不能怪任何人。租金是由高税收(销售、收入、房地产、能源、就业等)推动的。以及像他这样的政客对新建住房的限制。减税和繁文缛节,租金也会随之而来。PIF世界播

The cost of living varies enormously across the country—ask anyone living in New York or San Francisco. These people likely need far more than $15 an hour to survive with one job. However, people living in many other places can do well enough on a lower minimum wage. The basic economic laws of supply and demand will determine what wages actually are, as evidenced in the three years before the Covid-19 virus decimated the economy. We had full employment, wages were rising rapidly across all levels, especially at the bottom, and the “employees wanted” sections of newspapers across the nation were larger than ever. PIF世界播

全国各地的生活成本差别很大--问问任何住在纽约或旧金山的人。这些人可能需要远远超过每小时15美元的工资才能在一份工作中生存下来。然而,生活在许多其他地方的人可以用较低的最低工资过得足够好。供求的基本经济规律将决定工资实际是多少,新冠肺炎病毒摧毁经济之前的三年就是明证。我们实现了充分就业,各个层次的工资都在迅速上涨,特别是在最底层,全国各地报纸上的“雇员招聘”版块比以往任何时候都要多。PIF世界播


Some states recently raised their minimum wage which, not surprisingly, resulted in employees laying off workers, the net result being that those most in need suffer the most. So what we have again are politicians, most of whom have never actually run a business, trying to manipulate something to gain votes in an election. Kindly let us run our businesses as we know how to do it far better than you. PIF世界播

一些州最近提高了最低工资,这并不令人惊讶,导致员工解雇工人,最终结果是那些最需要帮助的人遭受的损失最大。因此,我们再次看到的是政客们,他们中的大多数人从未真正经营过企业,他们试图操纵某些东西,以在选举中获得选票。请让我们经营我们的业务,因为我们知道如何做得比你们好得多。PIF世界播

Rep. Norcross, says that “the federal minimum wage . . . isn’t livable no matter where you reside.” That statement doesn’t hold up to scrutiny. Most of those earning the minimum wage aren’t heads of households, as Mr. Norcross implies. They are unskilled workers who are starting out, typically teenagers. More than doubling the minimum wage would effectively price them out of the workforce, snatching away from them the first rung of the ladder of economic advancement, denying those laborers the opportunity to learn skills that would enable them to move up to higher levels of income.

众议员诺克罗斯说“联邦最低工资。。。不管你住在哪里都不适合居住。“。这一声明经不起推敲。正如诺克罗斯所暗示的那样,大多数挣最低工资的人都不是户主。他们是刚起步的非熟练工人,通常是青少年。将最低工资提高一倍以上,实际上会将他们的价格赶出劳动力大军,夺走他们经济进步阶梯的第一级,剥夺这些劳动者学习技能的机会,这些技能将使他们能够提升到更高的收入水平。PIF世界播
