McClintock on the Minimum Wage

Damn, I should have voted for this guy when I had the chance. Senator McClintock makes a classic reductio ad absurdum case against minimum wage increases here:

"If a simple legislative act increasing the minimum wage to $7.75 is all that is needed to improve the lot of the working poor by just a little, then why not raise it to $10 an hour and get them to the poverty level?"..."For that matter, why not raise it to $50 an hour, assuring every working Californian a comfortable living?"
