I got reposted to Zero Hedge

My article at Mises.org yesterday was reposted to Zero Hedge. By the looks of it, the piece got quite the exposure.

One commenter of the article’s link on Reddit made a comment that I think summarizes my argument quite well: If minimum wage works, why are people with disabilities exempted from it?

Of course, there are those that disagree with the exemption and believe, for “equality’s” sake, that people with disabilities deserve to be paid minimum wage like everyone else. Many of these people are self-described “advocates” for the rights of people with disabilities and wrongly consider ending the 14(c) exemption a matter of justice. But first they must prove that minimum wage actually helps those it’s intended to help, which, as my article explains, would in turn defy the reasoning of minimum wage’s originators.
