Wait, What? California Liberals Proposing A FIFTY Dollar An Hour Minimum Wage [VIDEO]

Hold on to your hats, folks, because according to Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), we’re in for a mind-boggling proposal in the debate for one of California’s U.S. Senate seats. Brace yourselves – Lee thinks it’s perfectly reasonable to jack up the minimum wage to a jaw-dropping $50 an hour. Yes, you heard it right, $50!

In a display of economic acumen that leaves us all scratching our heads, Lee seems to believe that thrusting the minimum wage to $50 per hour is the key to financial prosperity. Picture this: minimum wage workers raking in over $100,000 a year – because who needs economic sanity anyway?

This remarkable proposal came to light during a debate where Lee faced off against fellow Democrats Adam Schiff and Katie Porter, along with the lone voice of reason, Republican Steve Garvey. While Schiff and Porter were content with pushing for a mere $20-an-hour minimum wage, Lee decided to take the cake with her $50-an-hour extravaganza.

Lee justified this mind-boggling figure by pointing to reports claiming that $127,000 for a family of four is just “barely enough to get by” in the Bay Area. Another survey apparently suggested that $104,000 for a single individual is considered “barely enough to get by” due to the affordability crisis. One can’t help but wonder if Lee’s math involves a magical calculator that defies all economic logic.

“Just do the math!” Lee exclaimed, as if we’re all missing some groundbreaking revelation. Of course, she tossed in the obligatory nod to raising national minimum wages to a “living raise” – whatever that means. She generously concedes that maybe $20 or $25 would be fine on the national level, but hey, California needs something extra special, right?

So, there you have it – a minimum wage proposal that defies all reason, brought to you by none other than Rep. Barbara Lee. Because in the world of economic absurdity, why settle for $15 or $20 when you can aim for the astronomical heights of $50? Just when you thought you’ve seen it all in politics, along comes a proposal that leaves you questioning the very fabric of economic sanity.
