Fail Quote: Rep. McGuire thinks young workers aren’t worth the minimum wage

From New Hampshire Rep. Carol McGuire (R), explaining why she sponsored a successful (albeit pointless) repeal of the state’s minimum wage of $7.25/hour:

"It's very discriminatory, particularly for young people. They're not worth the minimum," she said.

She believes there are young people who would get a job if they could be paid $5 an hour instead of the minimum.

So, it’s not that she doesn’t want there to be a minimum wage. She just wants another, lower minimum, one that fits more appropriately to those worthless, bottom-feeding young workers. ’Cause who needs them, anyway.
