Guest poster JD writes at Paterico's Potifications (emphasis mine):
The Nation accidentally proves the opposite of what they set out to prove about minimum wage laws and WalMart.Given what we're now seeing out of the Obama administration, one might add that the same applies to liberals managing U.S. foreign and domestic policies, as well!After having their hypocrisy pointed out, when it was shown The Nation didn't pay their interns even minimum wage, it ultimately resulted in The Nation hiring less interns.Liberals and economics do not mix.
In a statement to Propublica, The Nation confirmed one of the basic criticisms that conservatives, and our faithful sidekick, logic, make about raising the minimum wage:
"We are not yet certain how this will work out long term, but for the fall we are anticipating hiring ten interns rather than twelve."
