“GET A JOB”: Dialogue Between a Conservative Congressman and a Voter on the Minimum Wage

VOTER TO REP. C.W. BILL YOUNG (R-FLA.): Jesse Jackson Jr. is passing around a bill to increase the minimum wage to $10 an hour. Would you support that?

REP. YOUNG: “Probably not.”

VOTER: “It’s $10 bucks an hour. It would give us a living wage.”

YOUNG: “How about getting a job. Why do you want that benefit? Get a job.”

VOTER: “I have a job, but it’s not enough to get by on.”
