Re: “Fight For Fifteen!”
From a friend of this blog, here’s where the $15/hour minimum wage leads, inevitably and inexorably:
Let me just take a moment to say, I don’t think the “#FightFor15” has anything to do with raising worker wages, or taking any sort of care of the little guy. If it were, you’d be fighting for the only sustainable minimum wage there is – widespread prosperity
No. This is about virtue-signaling to your base (and I don’t mean minimum wage earners) and showing small business who’s boss.
That is all.
