Work at today’s minimum wage is better than ‘moral’ unemployment

Labor unions and “moral” activists have once again somehow gotten a few of the poorest and least educated workers in the Triangle to walk off their jobs and demand publicly that they all be priced out of work and their jobs be taken by machines.
True, that isn’t what any of them think would happen. Practically, however, if they got what they wanted, that’s what would happen. Working for the lowest allowable wage is nobody’s ideal. It’s better than not working at all, however — a lot better than misguided activists seem to appreciate.
