    Remember 15/hr isn't law just yet but anticipation has these companies and businesses reevaluating business plans.

    It's not my fault you don't understand capitalism or even the idea that a lot of these "chains" are owned by independent owners. Your ignorance of business is not my fault and you ask a lot of questions a high school kid would ask.

    My point - if you can understand is that businesses will acct accordingly to your 15/hr nonsense and the end result will be millions loosing their jobs... Just so the FEW of you that can actually keep your job and your greedy demands (if you succeed)...... Now that is greed and - IMO, masochism.

    Do you get it now?

    THe business doesn't work for you - you work for the business!

    Your the one screaming its going to be $15 hr here.
    Also why didnt it happen now? Many of these states raised their wages a while ago. When is it going to happen?

    hmm.. it still seems a little soon to call out results.
    in my armchair economists opinion, I cant imagine it being measurable/comparable for at least 5+ years.

    itll be interesting to see how this affects jobs that were already paying more than minimum.
    as with my employer, the only employees that would've been compensated for an increased minimum wage, would've been anyone who's wages were surpassed. kinda ****ty for the rest, but when there's no requirement for them to adjust all wages then I certainly cant fault them..

    Of course some did, some had no choice due to regional standard of living ( but not many)...

    The only fair and logical wage is a regional standard of living wage - potentially even age based.

    Look you cant pay someone 15 dollars an hour where rent is 300 a month and you can't pay someone 9 bucks an hour where rent is 1200 a month... Do you not understand that?

    As someone with a background in accounting - there must be a balance - and there is no balance there. No matter how much you hate the "rich" which is a highly subjective idea.

    Sorry to tell you but on the north shore of Chicago a million dollar a year salary is nothing... In Chicago It may by you a nice apartment in a nice neighborhood.

    This is why I talk of regional standard of living.

    7-8 bucks an hour in Green Bay is "rich" but in Chicago it's nothing - not even enough to buy/rent an apartment in the ghetto.

    Our government has ZERO concept on the discrepancies between region to region... They don't see the difference between Chicago, Green Bay, Omaha, St Louis, Noam, Bangor etc wherever it may be...

    This is something you do not understand.
