    To repeat, any business that depends on paying poverty wages and being subsidized by taxpayers is a ty business.
    Boutons so re ed he looks at every business like its megapowerful global force like amazon. Totally ignoring small businesses where the owner maybe takes home $20k if he or she is lucky at the end of the year.

    But yeah theyre a piece of if they don't want to pay their workers $15 an hour. Trust fund baby logic

    Three years into the real time experiment with higher minimum wages, the damage to business and workers is not yet empirically measurable.

    Maybe that chart could be accompanied by one showing the corresponding growth of tech jobs - with Amazon HQ, Google and Facebook increasing their presence in Seattle in the past decade - not counting Microsoft in Redmond.
    Indeed.

    Cost of living in many places is forcing a lot of businesses to shut down because they can't find workers for the low pay that they are offering. Austin being a good example.

    Pretty much what I have said from the get go.

    It is never the doomsday scenario predicted by the right.

    Link is broken. Remove the "mpid" part from the end. Guessing that likely proceeded a cookie string in URL window.

    Studies tend to predict that employment will be lower, which is the general consensus among economists, but it would seem that the reality departs from the theoretical here.

    Reality, of course, is that wealth concentration means that owners can afford more than many think.

    Those who claim that minimum wages are job destroyers have been successful in thwarting an increase in the federal minimum wage for a decade. Yet, the ac ulation of data and a shift in the nation’s political currents make it likely that an increase is becoming more acceptable. With the 2020 presidential election already heating up, demands for raising the minimum wage could very well become a defining issue.
    Throw that into the mix. Another popular Democratic policy, with actual data supporting it and nullifying standard conservative criticisms.

    As I'm sure you are well aware, those kiosks have been in McDonalds for years. Even a $3 minimum wage isn't stopping that from happening.

    I was not aware, as I don't frequent McSoyBurgers like blake. But I would've figured some have adopted them.

    Lmao Neither do I... Who the eats that garbage? I haven't "eaten" Mc since I was like 14 yrs old. Imagine being an atheist and spending like $30-50 grand for your daughter to attend a Catholic school but spending a few dollars on garbage at Mc so you can send your daughter to the ER one day for $30-50 grand with a heart condition due to her obesity.

    Maybe he wants to kill her because he's resentful that it's not really his (biological) daughter.

    Nah it's probably because she's getting closer to our Lord and learning morals he never learned in life.

    You mean like all of them?

    I recall TV commercials being recited at school back in the seventies, the jingles sung, the whole bit.

    The pre-cable TV/pre-personal PC-world was kinda starved for content relatively speaking, seems to me.

    They should be working for "We the People" for $0. No one asked any of them to run for office and thus it's their civic duty right?
