Stan Jones on Jobs

 


Get rid of minimum wage laws

We have a duty to help the poor. We have a duty to get rid of minimum wage laws that prevent the poor from being trained in their first jobs. We must stop supporting laws that keep the poor out of the job market. In a free economy, wages generally increase. Few workers stay at a subsistence level. Relative to the rest of the world, the U.S. has less regulation (but still far too much). That's why U.S. workers have had such high wages compared to the rest of the world.

Only businesses create jobs, not government

Government cannot create jobs. Only entrepreneurs and businesses create jobs. Government can only prevent the creation of jobs. We must get government out of the way of businesses. Everyone must have the right to freely choose to join a union or not to join a union. It must never be a condition of employment. Nor should government get involved in setting minimum wages. Determination of wages is strictly a matter of bargaining between the employee and the employer
