Celebrity chef called out Democrats in Gavin Newsom’s state for a proposal that would destroy the economy

The Left keeps coming up with insane ideas.

And they have been enacting them into law in deep-blue strongholds.

But a celebrity chef called out one Democrat in Gavin Newsom’s state for a proposal that would destroy the economy.

Chef Andrew Gruel, who was a judge on the Food Network show Food Truck Face Off, forcefully spoke out against the insane COVID lockdowns in California that nearly destroyed his business.

Since then, Gruel has frequently spoken out against far-left policies that are wrecking the Golden State.

Recently, Gruel called out Congresswoman Barbara Lee, who’s running for Dianne Feinstein’s Senate seat, for proposing a ludicrous $50 per hour minimum wage.

Gruel appeared on Fox News and explained to host Laura Ingraham, “Well, let’s cut to the bottom line. Every single business in California would go under, number one…Number two, if she’s really serious about this, why don’t you go ahead and do it tomorrow and start with all the state-run employees at the DMV? Start paying them $50 an hour. See what happens.”

To Gruel’s point, the state would blow through its budget instantaneously.

California would have to dramatically raise taxes, which would drive away businesses, massively cut services, or take out loans and issue bonds, only to go into default eventually.

Gruel continued, “[T]hey’re not serious about this. This lady is a moron and narcissist who’s saying stupid things to try to get attention at best…At worst, she is trying to buy votes. This is going to lead to upward pressure on all wages…It’s going to totally inflate the entire economy of California which is already there and there will be no independent businesses in California – 100 percent of the businesses will be run by the state and they will rely on the state. It’s communism-lite.”

During a recent debate, Lee said that a $50 minimum wage was “economically sustainable.”

Such a proposal would lead to crippling unemployment and rapid business flight.

Lee is either economically illiterate, or she thinks that she can rook voters into supporting her.

Lee claimed, “I know what worker productivity means and that means that you have to make sure that your employees are taken care of and have a living wage…$104,000 for a family of one, barely enough to get by, low income because of the affordability crisis. So just do the math. Do the math.”

Leftists like Lee never “do the math.”

They just spout nonsense like a $50 minimum wage and hope enough gullible voters fall for it.
