Matt Walsh: How to Debate Liberals on the Minimum Wage

One of the left’s most common arguments in favor of drastically raising the minimum wage is that everyone who works should be able to support themselves. While this seems like an agreeable point, the reality isn’t so straightforward. In truth, some jobs are only worth so much, and not everyone deserves to be paid more.

Barring any minimum wage requirements, the free market is what determines how much someone’s labor is worth. In the cases where their labor is not worth paying a living wage for, though, it isn’t feasible to pay these employees more than the value that they are bringing to the company.

Having the government force companies to pay their employees more by raising the minimum wage does not solve this problem. Rather than paying employees more than their labor is worth, companies in areas where the minimum wage is excessively high resort to laying off employees and using automation instead.

Under the free market system, not every job deserves to be paid a living wage. This is the harsh reality, and it’s a problem that no amount of government intervention can fix. Instead, the responsibility falls to the individual provide for themselves and secure a job that can keep the bills paid.

Here’s Matt Walsh responding to a left-wing YouTuber calling him out over his statements on the minimum wage.
