As Expected $15 Minimum Wage Hurting Workers

The left’s clamor for raising the minimum wage hurts the ones it is supposed to help.
By: Sarah Cowgill March 15, 2019
The move to make flipping burgers and shoehorning fries into a lucrative career has been a national debate pitting hourly workers against the businesses that employ them. Granted, doubling the entry-level wage seems ideal for those struggling to survive. However, as more states and municipalities force the issue through legislation or ballot initiatives, the downside risk becomes increasingly, and painfully, obvious.

It’s a bite that the Big Apple is experiencing firsthand as the minimum wage increased 15% on Jan. 1, and employees who rely on tip wages to eke out a living are salving their dashed hopes of gaining ground because restaurant owners are slashing hours and, in many cases, abolishing hospitality positions altogether.

Well, that didn’t take long at all.
Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.

Duh.  This will be blamed on Republicans in general, Trump in particular.  Watch for it.
We need to re-coin the expression, "Press Bias" to "Media Bigotry."
I will NOT comply.
