Current Show (September 1, 2016):


THE REAL EFFECTS OF A HIGHER MINIMUM WAGE
Discussed by James Sherk
with The Heritage Foundation (www.Heritage.org)


Part 1 of 2

Employees must earn what it costs to employee them. Forcing businesses to pay starting wages at $15 an hour makes less-skilled workers and less-experienced workers unemployable.

James Sherk is a Research Fellow with Labor and Economics at The Heritage Foundation. He is an expert on jobs, labor policy, unemployment, and economic mobility.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

First, James Sherk summarizes the REAL effects on the economy if the Federal Minimum Wage is increased to $15. “Basically, you get fewer jobs and higher prices,” James says. Business will hire less workers who will still do the same amount of work as more workers, therefore, causing more stress on workers. The business owner will, in turn, raise prices because they will be paying more in wages, even with fewer workers.

FACT: If the Federal Minimum Wage requirement is raised to $15, it would cost Texas alone 900,000 jobs. Nearly a million jobs – gone. Nearly one million people – unemployed, likely for a long, long time.

Today, in America, are there fewer workers in the workforce than at any other time since 1977?

Is the true unemployment rate much, much higher than the government is reporting? NOTE: You may be surprised by James Sherk’s answer!

PART 2 OF 2 - THE REAL EFFECTS OF A HIGHER MINIMUM WAGE
Discussed by James Sherk
with The Heritage Foundation (www.Heritage.org)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

If there are too many unemployed workers chasing too few open positions, what happens to wages?

If open positions have few, or no, applicants wanting to fill those positions, would employers begin to increase the wages being offered in an attempt to hire new employees?

When the cost of doing business increases due to a hike in the Federal Minimum Wage, what choices do the business owners have?

What happens to America’s workforce if the minimum wage is increased to $15 per hour?

How many Texas workers would be effected by a minimum wage increase to $15 per hour?

Why is it bad public policy to artificially mandate a minimum start wage of $15 per hour?

EPA USING HUMAN GUINEA PIGS
Discussed by Steve Milloy
with Junk Science (www.JunkScience.com)


Part 1 of 2

For years, the EPA has quietly been experimenting on humans with what the agency describes as deadly pollutants, including soot and diesel exhaust. Though the EPA tells the public and Congress that there is no safe exposure to these pollutants, it experiments with them at very high doses.


Steve Milloy is credited with popularizing the term “Junk Science”. For over twenty-five years, Steve has been fighting to debunk lies from the government and the media on all manner of issues. To learn more about Steve, click here. http://junkscience.com/about/

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Concerning the topic today, Steve says, “Experiments using humans are strictly controlled, but the EPA does not care, nor follows the law.

Between 2000 and 2010, the government (EPA) conducted an experiment to determine the effects of potentially harmful levels of diesel on humans. Listen in as Steve Milloy explains the purpose of the experiment and reveals more details.

FACT: Some of the participants in the study were the very people which the EPA says are most vulnerable to the pollutants, including the elderly (up to age 80), children (as young as ten years old), and those with asthma, diabetes, and heart disease.

Did the director of the EPA testify before Congress of the lethal doses of breathing diesel exhaust?

PART 2 OF 2 - EPA USING HUMAN GUINEA PIGS
Discussed by Steve Milloy
with Junk Science (www.JunkScience.com)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

After the Tuskegee Experiment, the government passed laws concerning the use of humans as guinea pigs for experiments. For instance, all participants must have fully informed consent. Listen in as Steve Milloy explains in more detail what the law requires.

Were the participants in this diesel study given full knowledge of what the experiment entailed?

What was the purpose of the diesel study? Was the EPA really trying to kill the participants?

How did Steve discover the EPA testing program, and what did he do?

Has the EPA attempted to cover this up?

What is Steve doing to expose this illegal, unethical use of humans as guinea pigs by our own government?

WHY I AM NOT AN AGNOSTIC - PART 3
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)


Day 4

It’s easy to look at something and say “That’s the truth.” Everyone has an opinion about everything. And everyone believes their opinion is the best. So, how can Christians best share the love of Christ with non-believers?

Mark uses Stephen Fry, English author and actor, as an example in today’s segment. Stephen is a “smart dude” according to Mark who just happens to be an outspoken atheist. He was asked once what he would say when he died and stood at the pearly gates. Stephen, in turn, counters with asking why a loving God would create a world with diseases like bone cancer in innocent children. Valid question, yes. But what does “justice” really mean? Listen in as Mark gives the rest of the story and explains the true meaning of justice.

Tune in tomorrow as Mark finishes this lesson. Next week he will have more, so make sure you join us every weekday!

Mark is leading his 800+ member class into a deeper understanding of God’s Word.  Join him next Sunday at Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston.
