It seems the only argument opponents of a living wage have these days is, 'If you raise wages Walmart won't be able to offer the low prices the working poor need to survive'
See how it works The working poor need Walmart's low prices to survive, yet if you raise their wages then Walmart won't be able to offer them low prices and if Walmart can't offer them low prices they won't be able to survive.Circular reasoning is providing evidence for the validity of an assertion, which assumes the validity of the assertion. General forms include "A is true because A is true" or "A is true because B is true, and B is true because A is true". Often used as a mechanism to prevent an assertion from being challenged or questioned, or to "win" a debate by sending it round and round in circles.
Here is US Senator Bernie Sanders asking if it is just that the Walton family has so much while so many have so little. Let the circular reasoning begin.
