The $15.00/hr is not only ushering in robotics; but causing employers to cut staff, reduce hours to part time, causing some workers to loose company insurance and causing some food services to shut down completely.
Some folks work ethic and efforts aren’t even worth $5 an hour. It’s a shame but it’s true.
This was so incredibly foreseeable.
Only libtard obliviots could possibly have missed it.
“Only libtard obliviots could possibly have missed it.”
They didn’t miss anything. This is part of the plan. Those who make the $15.00 minimum will still vote rat and those fired because of it will have no choice but to vote rat.
What is destroying jobs is the money being sucked out of the economy by corruption and people making ten of thousands of dollars a month. In 2018, Median individual income was $39,400.00.
Unless opposing do what is important to win new votes.
Then all the $20 per hour employees will be ticked and want a raise because minimal workers make almost what they do. Companies cant afford to give raises to great workers because they are overpaying the minimal workers. Sorry but companies cant raise their prices enough to cover it all and cant run $22,000,000,000,0000 debts like the government.
The real minimum wage is zero.
The the leftists can blame white supremacy because whites will not pay $20 for a burger. The unemployed can then get on welfare and still be a voting constituency of the left.
Prime rule of the multiverse:
“Everything touched by a progressive turns to Obamastuff.”
This graph shows t raising the min. wage had no effect on youth employment None at all. (1950-2013)
The GOP needs to get behind this push and get this devisive issue off the table.
What’s wrong with making tens of thousands a month?
$15 an hours is a perfect win for the Democrats. It allows them to claim they are champions of the downtrodden and disadvantaged while assuring that millions will lose their jobs or never get their first job, thus assuring permanent dependency on Democrat government handouts.
2. While pay may increase, taxes also increase when a person moves from one tax bracket to another. Also Government benefits can be denied when a worker earns too much money. So a worker making $15 per hour, working fewer hours, taxed more and less government assistance can be worse off.
3. Businesses are less likely to hire entry level employees when their cost exceeds their contribution to the company.
4. What is really killing businesses with these changes is the rate of change. Going from $7.25 to $15.00 in a short time is difficult to pass along to the customers. And it is not just the worker earns a higher pay, governments calculate all types of taxes, unemployment charges and worker comp programs off employees pay. So these raise also.
Some folks work ethic and efforts arent even worth $5 an hour.
Our so-called education system is a big part of the problem. It is indoctrinating students instead of preparing them to be productive citizens.
“...they are overpaying the minimal workers.”
Agreed, the company I worked for, now retired, paid you for what your position was worth to the company. If you didn’t like it, time to find another job.
