    Her comments about the unexpected consequences to entry level job creation are entirely correct. The reason the min wage is pushed even though it hurts young people trying to get entry level positions is that some union contracts have provisions that increases in min wage boost their pay also a way to get an extra raise.

    You started off writing a factual statement, then you swerved and interjected an inference. Fact: minimum wage is a barrier to free trade. Any type of ceiling or floor on supply and demand will effect the free market system. When we set a minimum wage it creates less work, thus, less employment.
