Social media companies are fighting on all front now with Democrats and Republicans united in the quest to curb their growth and influence. The GOP mostly sees a freedom of speech problem, the Democrats see a privacy and monopoly issue. Then there's the #FightFor15, which has gone totally mainstream in Democratic politics. Would a federal raise be good for all Americans? John Kristof and Rob Winterton of Young Voices joined the podcast to weigh in. Follow them on Twitter @RobPWJ and @JMKristof
John Kristof is a Research Fellow at the Sagamore Institute in Indianapolis who writes frequently on economic issues. He joins the Young Voices Podcast today to talk about occupational licensing following an outcry over “Permit Patty”, a woman who called the cops of a young child in San Francisco for selling water bottles on her block.
John has studied matters related to labor, economics and the idea of getting a permission slip to work. His most recent piece in RealClearPolicy looks at the battle for the right to sell lemonade in your own neighborhood and how companies are getting involved to fight arcane laws.
