ITT: Lemonhead doesn't understand natural influation of prices and in which we find out he's never had to work minimum wage.
Wait, you tell me there's no inflation on common household goods? Lol right
Minimum wage might lower employment? Again, lol right.
"Our results show a minimal impact on employment. In San Francisco and Santa Fe, the large increases in the prevailing minimum wage raised wages paid in typically low-wage establishments, including fast food, retail, and small businesses. At the same time, we found no consistent impact on employment in these same sectors. The large majority of employment changes we observed were small and not statistically distinguishable from zero. Of the statistically significant changes we did see, slightly more were positive-suggesting job gains after the minimum wage-than negative."
Quite frankly at this point I don't know how it is possible to survive on minimum wage, let alone standards below that market rate. Raising would certainly increase the quality of living in the United States, that for sure.
