LA Times writes about teen unemployment, can't figure out why it exists
The LA Times should force its reporters to read Thomas Sowell after writing this article. Anyone with a modicum of intelligence knows that the minimum wage destroys entry level jobs. California's minimum wage is $6.75 per hour. That's $1.60 more per hour than the Feds require. California is one of 13 states, coincidentally all "blue" (except Alaska) with minimum wage laws higer than the fedeal government requires. Only Alaska, Oregon, Washington and Vermont are dumber than California - i.e., have higer minimum wages. Yet the LA times never picks up on the only reason teen unemployment is a problem - the only reason.
