Well ... before you break out the champagne, you might want to take a gander at what happened in Emeryville, CA when they raised the min. wage to historic levels.
The city has now been forced to re-think this policy in light of the crippling effect it had on the restaurants in the city.
But ... go ahead, raise wages higher and higher...... with a recession on the horizon, this will make for a great outcome... rush on fools... hell is only half way full.
We were told a decade ago that raising the minimum wage to $15 would not raise prices, would make tipping obsolete, and would turn the minimum wage into a living-wage. How’d that work out???
What really gets me is the reason it was $15 was because they were trying to drop it to $12 in bargaining and I pushed for $15 then $16 then $18 then $20 then $22.
You only win when you push the Overton Window your way.
Never compromise down.
Yes, stupidity is the new dumb.
Well-done, Katie and Transit Riders Union!
