In an explosive press conference, political analyst Juan Bobo explained why Senator Marco Rubio is trying to force a $5 minimum wage on Puerto Rico.
“It’s all based on the Jones Act,” he said. According to Juan Bobo, the Florida senator gets an enormous amount of political support from the city of Jacksonville, FL.
The Jones Act costs the Puerto Rican economy several billion dollars each year…but it keeps 30,000 to 40,000 jobs in Jacksonville .
And this is where the Bobo analysis comes in. According to Juan Bobo:
“If Puerto Ricans have a fair minimum wage, a good economy, and a decent quality of life, they will start feeling more capable, more ready for battle…and they’ll start looking to defeat the Jones Act. This would spell disaster for Sen. Rubio.”
“If Puerto Rico managed to end the Jones Act, then…
30,000 – 40,000 jobs would shift from Jacksonville to Puerto Rico.
Carrier boat companies – Sea Star, Trailer Bridge, Horizon – would all lose their monopoly profits. Puerto Rican carriers would now run their own shipping.
Labor Unions – the Teamsters, Longshoremen and maritime unions would be up in arms.
Secondary businesses – restaurants, hot dog stands, welders, storage units, – would also disappear.
“And Marco Rubio would disappear too,” said Bobo.
“His career would end immediately. In order stay on top, Marco Rubio needs to keep us down.”
