All this talk about minimum wage is little more than a safety net for the laziest Americans.
Areas that are trying this are in triage, as this will never work. Minimum wage is a training salary and frankly, it’s not needed for that. A person could theoretically ask for more money than minimum wage, and an employer could pay it.
But government wants people to believe it is necessary, thus we are where we are.
Nevertheless, the places where the new $15 minimum wage has been rolled out are ALL suffering.
