Economists: Raising minimum wage doesn't always cause unemployment, we proved it.

Also Economists: Well, low cost labor entering an economy actually helps it, we proved that too.

FTR: Not saying they're wrong, more that economics itself isn't that rational.


"low cost labor entering an economy actually helps it"
This is, at least partly, because we're not just talking about units of labour supply; we're talking about *people* who have a tendency to want to buy things, not just to sell their labour.
