These people want an increased $15 minimum wage

I strongly disagree with these people for they do not know what they are talking about and the ruins that will come their way if they want an $15 an hour raise. If you want to be paid more for your work then you will have to pay more for what you buy. You want to buy milk? $10.00! You want to buy a Snickers candy bar? $5.00! You want to buy gas? $10.00 a gallon! The price of everything you buy will go up so overall I fear that this will cost us all to lose more money.

I guarantee that after $15 an hour, tables will still be dirty, orders will still be messed up, and they will still be holding up the counter.

We've discussed this subject in depth, and the conclusion is always the same.

They price themselves out of the market. Robotics was the answer to the Marxist move for a higher wage.
Robotic kiosks are putting these people out of work, a labor position that was meant to be an entry level slot, a stepping stone into the workforce, it was never supposed to be a permanent position.

Plus, it ain't fair to those who actually earn $15 an hour.

BINGO!
It's even more unfair to employers that get forced into pay increases because suddenly their hardworking employees feel like they're working a min wage job.
That's all this is, it's a way to hurt capitalism.

Most of the young adults calling for a $15 minimum wage more than likely failed economics class.

More than likely they never even had an economics class. American kids are being taught all the wrong subjects with sociology replacing economics...

:biggrin:
Beat me to it. They are taught that Capitalism is evil, and all econ classes are based on the concept of fair exchange and profit, (Gasp).
I learned economics in 1966 via a paper route, so when I had an econ class, it was as easy as breathing.

I am glad I had some jobs when I was in high school. They taught me some things about budgeting and, more importantly, exposed me to some jobs I did not desire for life. They were a motivator for me to earn my degree which I sorely needed.

I don't disagree with this.  Sad times.
