Well of course they do. They use the words “conservative” and “conservative values” so many times on their site, I quit counting.

They’re wrong, of course. According to US Labor Dept data, over half of all jobs in America pay under $18/hour. And of those, 40% pay under $15.50/hour.

I’d like to see the people writing those articles try to live on $18/hour.

This is an excellent piece.
