How could someone who calls himself a “wonk” write this:
"[In Puerto Rico] just 40 percent of the population has a job—or is even looking for one. That figure has plummeted in recent years. In the United States as a whole, it is 62.9 percent."
then write this:
"Why are so few people working or looking for work? The report cites one surprising problem: the federal minimum wage, which is at the same level in Puerto Rico as in the rest of the country, even though the economy there is so much weaker."
without any hint that the two things (high unemployment and high minimum wage) might be related? He even suggests that the latter is “surprising” in light of the former!
