Adam Carolla Blasts Obama's Minimum Wage Rhetoric
Liberal comedians nationwide put down their note pads when President Obama rallied for a higher minimum wage during this week's State of the Union address.
After all, liberals rarely consider the fiscal consequences of such hikes. What's to make fun of there?
Not Adam Carolla.
The podcast king blasted the president's rhetoric on the issue, reminding listeners most minimum wage jobs are meant for employees getting their first taste of economic realities.
Minimum-wage jobs are the ones you’re supposed to have in high school and you’re supposed to pass through them. The idea is — I worked at McDonald’s when I was 16. The whole idea isn’t let’s make Adam Carolla comfortable working at McDonald’s. I was like, ‘I’m getting $2.43 a hour. This place sucks ass. I want out of here as fast as I can possibly do it.’
He also argued people working minimum wage jobs should think twice before starting a family, a subject no politician would ever explore.
And you certainly aren’t supposed to have two fucking kids when you’re making Minimum Wage. It’s not responsible; it’s not responsible to the kids you’re trying to raise; and it’s not responsible to the community they live in because you’re not — you’re not paying your fair share.
