Don't think of it as a pay raise for minimum wage workers. Think of it as a pay decrease for everyone else. And, yes, you can thank democrats for that. You aren't poor or dumb enough for them to give a damn about you.

The mayor of seattle issued an executive order to raise the minimum wage for all city employees to $15 an hour. Seatac Washington passed similar local "legislation". The $15 an hour figure was also the rally cry and demand of the fast food workers staging strikes in the fall. $15 an hour seems to be the figure the left really is eying(which is why Lis Warren floated the $22 an hour number....to make $15 seem like a "reasonable" give).

How will a 50% hike in labor costs affect the cost of most products made?

 

I bet more manufacturers could justify a shift to automation if they havent done so.

More companies could justify implementation of technology based solutions that still employ people.

More companies would have to charge more for products.

Okay...so the muncipality of Seattle will insitute a $15 minimum wage for it's employees. That doesn't mean Seattle has a $15 minimum wage.

Burger flippers are demanding that, too. Of course they're not going to get it but there's plenty of sympathy for them from the pinko left.

They can demand it, but they're not going to get it.

Chicago progressive aldermen are backing a referendum on the March 18th ballot regarding raising the minimum wage to $15 for certain businesses. The referendum asks if the city should require a minimum wage of $15 per hour for employees of companies with an annual gross revenues in excess of $50 million. Seems the progressive have their minds made up on the $15 figure.
