The Moral and Economic Case Against the Minimum Wage #FightAgainst15

by | Jan 18, 2021

Minimum wage laws tragically generate unemployment, especially so among the poorest and least skilled or educated workers… a minimum wage, of course, does not guarantee any worker’s employment; it only prohibits, by force of law, anyone from being employed at the wage which would pay his employer to hire him. It therefore compels unemployment.

Murray N. Rothbard
For a New Liberty, p. 196
