explain this without using the words stupid or hypocrite

p 182 _Married to the Mouse_"

"An opponent of raising the legal minimum wage, [president of the Orlando Chamber of Commerce Jacob] Stuart nevertheless thinks $10 an hour is the minimum acceptable wage in Orlando. "Anything less and we're paying it anyway in subsidies for health, transportation, housing, and food stampes," Stuart says."

Citation is an author (Richard E. Foglesong) interview September 1, 1999.

How can Stuart simultaneously believe that you shouldn't raise the legal minimum wage, but you should still have a minimum wage higher than the legal minimum wage? Without being a stupid hypocrite, that is.
