Raise the minimum wage then hire millions of government workers to affect the outcome! 'Voilà! We raised the minimum wage... therefore there are now more employed!'
Big government always presupposes creating jobs... and big government always presupposes deficit financing with fiat, as in counterfeit money. In fact it bases it's very existence upon the theft of wealth, transferring another's God given value into their fiat counterfeit money!
The creation of money through hidden transfer of value to fiat money, always forms the basis, though a diminishing basis, of their outcome based fraud.
They could not exist as 'big government' if force fed a constitutional diet!
