i love the cyclical nature of the internet. this was shown first in 2011 and was a huge deal all over the internet. then we all forgot about it. for whatever reason (did the vinyl just get released?) its started showing back up on twitter feeds and facebook a couple weeks ago, and now its making the blog circuit again. everything old is new again!

Feb 21 diminished commented on Smart Businesses Will Get Out In Front of the Minimum Wage Battle or Get Out of the Way.
i agree that something needs to be done, and i think that raising the minimum wage is one of those things, but i have some serious concerns that always seem to get glossed over when i talk to the $15NOW people. @2 - local business is one of them. what about the local restaurants/bars that already operate on razor thin margins, to be able to afford to pay their people $15 they would have to jump their prices way up and that would make them less competitive vs large chains.

what about the people making more than $15 an hour now? i would bet that they won't be getting raises proportionate with how much they are making now, my guess is that this lower middle class will be shoved to the bottom rung.

what about the people in the current middle class? im guessing they wont be getting raises either, but as everything gets more expensive to pay for the new minimum wage their wages won't go as far as they did before, basically giving them a pay cut.

what about manufacturing in the city? theyre already competing with china/india/korea/etc, with i'd assume very thin margins as well, are we basically pushing those jobs out of the city?

i want to believe that these types of things have been thought out, but no one seems to have any answers for me.
