Should Missouri Raise Its Minimum Wage?

Should Missouri Raise The Minimum Wage? from Missouri Viewpoints on Vimeo.

My bit starts at about the 15:30 part. There's so much ill-informed nonsense in the pro- camp, which is on display in the first half of the video, as well as in a radio debate I participated in last year. There are intellectually sound arguments to be made, but they aren't being made. Instead we get flat-eathers who believe that the law of demand can be repealed just because a bunch of progressive no-nothings can feel good about themselves. Also see this earlier post, with my letter to the editor.
