CBO: minimum wage increase will increase income inequality

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

What is the impact on somebody currently earning $10.10 per hour, having earned raises from the time he/she started at $7.25??

Do you leave him/her at $10.10 alongside the new employee? Or do you give them a raise, to distance them from the new employee, reflecting their greater skills and abilities?

Problems, problems when you try to do the work of the market for labor.
