At NO time did I say the law should be ignored OR violated. I do not support the concept of a minimum wage, but that is a far cry from recommending its ignorance once passed.

The fact remains, if a good (labor) is available at a lesser price for the same thing, the higher priced good (worker) is overpriced, by definition.

Goods and labor only sell for what the market will bear. The labor market in the US is now waking up to the fact that its prices were artificially high.

IOW, a setup where most people are serfs and a few (including you, I assume) have almost all the money and power is what you want.

As for you not supporting the concept of a min wage, well that doesn't matter. It's against the law to do what is being done and you are defending those breaking the law.
