GERALDO RIVERA (CO-HOST): Remember when it was $15 an hour was so exotic? Chasing $15 an hour minimum wage. Now it's $16, $18 for dishwashers. 


KATIE PAVLICH (CO-HOST): Yeah, but the reason for that, Geraldo, is because the government pumped so much money into the economy to pay people to stay home and not to work. And then people who own small businesses unlike the big corporations have to compete with the federal government to keep people. So when you have to pay people $15 an hour to be a dishwasher, guess what happens? You have to raise prices on everything else.
