Why the heck is Justin Bieber’s face appearing on this new billboard in Los Angeles? He looks SO SAD! Plus, I get seeing the singer’s face on a singing toothbrush, but a billboard about minimum wages? HUH?
“Why is Justin Bieber so sad?” asks the Employment Policies Institute, the organization behind the ad. “Could it be because 24% of teens who want a job can’t find one?”
The billboard’s goes on..
“Teen unemployment makes us all sad. Unfortunately, raising the minimum wage will only make things worse.”
The EPI added a disclaimer saying:
“Justin Bieber’s image on this billboard does not imply his endorsement of any particular minimum wage policy or an endorsement of the Employment Policies Institute.”
Not a good pairing..
