Is the Gov’t Preventing Jobs Growth

An editorial from the Washington Post provides some suggestions.

By Charles Lane

With unemployment stuck around 10 percent, President Obama has pledged “to take every responsible step to accelerate the pace of job growth.” Here’s a thought: Instead of trying to “create” jobs by tweaking this tax break or increasing that spending program, why not stop doing things that destroy jobs?
I suggest starting with these three job-rescuing policy changes, none of which would cost taxpayers a dime.
— End federal protectionism and price supports for sugar.
— Repeal the Davis-Bacon Act.
— Reduce the federal minimum wage.

These are just the bones of the article. Go here to read it all.
