Ben Carson Supports Minimum Wage

Well, presidential candidate Ben Carson is certainly special. Packaged as a small government advocate, Carson is very big on the wars of the Empire and he also wants to increase the minimum wage.

IJReview reports:
Presidential candidate and renowned physician Ben Carson has bucked from the GOP trend, telling CNBC‘s John Harwood that America should “probably” raise the minimum wage...
Carson’s statement on the minimum wage draws a stark contrast from his fellow Republicans. Continuing on the subject of minimum wage, Carson said:
“In several states you can get as much or more on government assistance as you can by working a minimum wage job… I don’t necessarily blame people for saying, ‘Look, I can stay home and make this money, or I can go and work this little chicken job that doesn’t have many benefits.”
