The 15 dollar minimum is working perfectly. It is keeping otherwise employable people off the workforce, collecting unemployment and other goodies courtesy of the Democrat Party.

In short a huge success for the party.

Why not pay the $15 per hour wage and keep the tips?

In fact, why not switch to an “all you can eat” restaurant featuring soup and salad bar?

Soup Plantation, Souper Salad, Sweet Tomatoes, Jason’s Deli et al

That’s a good idea.

There’s a few restaurants out here that just serve salads now.

business leaders and owners say the increased labor costs have forced them to cut staff, eliminate work shifts and raise prices."

Really. Name them. There are probably a million small businesses in NYC area. How many are having trouble? 5?

Facts that most Conservative don't know:

Fact 1: There is no historical data that suggests any causal relationship between increasing the minimum wage and increasing unemployment. No correlation what so ever.

Fact 2: There is no historical data to support the idea that increasing the minimum wage push up inflation. No correlation what so ever.

I learned this by doing just a little research on line. I'd post charts and graphs as supporting information but Freepers seem to hate them and most will not look at them.

“What it really forces you to do is make sure that nobody works more than 40 hours,”...
... that no jobs would be lost, no hours cut, and that businesses wouldn’t suffer if wages were nearly doubled.

Those folks never learned the lessons from obamacare.
The rules did not apply to those working something like 27 hours.
And just like that, everyone got part time jobs maxing at 27 hours per week.

its not that paying a little more at fast food places or restaurants of shops will kill us, but its the principle of the thing....we all work hard, at least I do, and I don’t like wasting money.
