On the Friday edition of The Daily Daily Caller Podcast, we have a great interview with Arthur Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute and author of the new book, “Love Your Enemies: How Decent People Can Save America from the Culture of Contempt.”

Before that we get into the interview, we cover the arrest of Julian Assange, the continued liberal freak-out over the attorney general looking into the origins of the hoax Russia investigation, and how Democrats are upset over a Washington Post story about the Trump administration considering releasing illegal aliens in sanctuary cities.

If illegal aliens are the boon to the economy leftists say they are, and they commit fewer crimes than Americans as leftists swear they do, why would the idea of more of them in cities that protect illegals upset anyone? Weird, right?

    Good talk.

    There has been so much talk over the past year or so about Universal Basic Incomes and Minimum Wages.

    Robots are going to replace workers – not because this is a natural progression of things – but because governments are pricing humans out of the low skill jobs. At $15 minimum wage, a robot becomes a financially viable replacement. How about this idea:

    Lower the minimum wage to reflect the value of work being done, but use welfare programs to subsidize the low wage workers. Allow welfare recipients to work without being disproportionately punished for their extra income – let them build up some resources of their own. In short, they would eventually be weaned off welfare as they get into the workforce and get better paying jobs.

    I agree with you. I have had periods of long term unemployment – and its bone crushingly depressing to feel so unwanted. Simple employment could be the solution to a lot of social problems that plague low-income communities.
