Tucker Carlson sounded off on Fox News after the US Congressional Budget Office projected Monday that President Biden’s push to increase the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour could cut employment by 1.4 million.
The CBO report forecast said “spending for unemployment compensation would increase under the bill because more workers would be unemployed.”
“Those higher prices, in turn, would lead consumers to purchase fewer goods and services. Employers would consequently produce fewer goods and services, and as a result, they would tend to reduce their employment of workers at all wage levels,” the CBO predicted.
