Debunking the Minimum Wage

Minimum wage provides economic care to workers and provides an access to consumer products, however, it also brings its own consequences.

The French election just concluded with an astounding win by Emmanuel Macron. The presidential election in France was on May 7, in the race there was Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen.
