    Get to labor prices like they have in Euro and Aus, they will.
    Do you have the numbers on that or is this just speculative?

    Here is an article discussing how McDonald's in Aus/Eur deal with the higher min. wage.

    While some of the methods are increasing employee productivity (less workers/more responsibility), raising prices up to 17%, relying more on teens (who have a lower MW), one is certainly the adoption of touchscreen and other automation.

    Did this paper pass the peer review process of a economic journal (that is respected)? I think not.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    A history journal centered on economics. My point stands.

    The economy will just self correct so that $15 tomorrow will be worth $8 today.

    A dollar is just a piece of paper. But liberals know these workers will never figure that out, so exploiting them is easy.
