Keith Ellison Celebrates His City’s NEW $15 Minimum Wage Hike With Horrid Song!

Keith Ellison Celebrates His City’s NEW $15 Minimum Wage Hike With Horrid Song!

The city of Minneapolis made the insane move of passing a measure to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour – even with the disaster that Seattle has now experienced with the same measure – and despite the nearly mountain high pile of studies that pointed out that this very move is a very, very bad one, the ultra radical congressman from the state of Minnesota decided to celebrate in the most annoying way possible.

He broke out his guitar and sang for joy that his controlled phony-economics actually passed.

According to TheBlaze:

‘The Minneapolis City Council approved Friday a plan to implement a $15 minimum wage, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) was so excited over the development that he sang in celebration.’

The Star Tribune dove a little deeper into the measure:

‘The $15 minimum wage will be fully implemented in the city by 2024, but larger businesses with more than 100 employees will have to comply sooner. In a video posted on his Twitter account, Ellison appeared elated by the news. He sang a cover of “Money (That’s What I Want),” adding lyrics about the wage hike.’

In the video, Ellison went on smugly strumming and playing his guitar:

“I’ve been marching for my 15, getting paid now that’s what I need, I need money, that’s what I want, yeah, I need money, that’s what I want.”

A singing politician, even if it doesn’t sound that bad, is not the remedy to the huge economic destruction that this city just committed itself to. What’s worse is that we all had a test subject called Seattle to see what happened with the ‘Fight for 15’ and lo and behold, it’s been a total failure..

If you haven’t heard it yet, the telling University of Washington study found that by the time the wage hit $13 an hour (the $15 an hour minimum wage is being phased in), Seattle’s low-wage workers were at a disadvantage because they lost $179 a month on average due to job losses and cut backs in hours worked.

To the unlettered left, that amounts to $1,500 a year…

Yeah. Good luck, Minneapolis. Not that it will save you.
