They NEVER write about how every business will raise Prices. The Suppliers, Restaurants, The Apartments, Clothing and Groceries. The Unions are for it because their members salaries are indexed to the Minimum Wage. So All things made by a Union worker will be more expensive.

So, if everything goes up, the same ones that was in poverty before will still be in poverty, it will be just at a higher cost for everyone.

The Free market will Work if given a chance. Back in the 80’s and 90’s I worked in some of the fastest growing counties in the US. You could not attract or hire anyone for less than $8 per hour and the Minimum Wage was $5.35. So effectively the minimum wage was $8 for these counties. However after the growth settled down and moved to other parts of the State around 2000 and recession hit in 2008 the effective minimum wage became $7.

Minimum Wage is suppose to be a Floor for entry level workers. Many of the Teens do not have the skill set that warrants this $15 price tag. I understand paying an adult little more but, a $15 teenager that is ridiculous.
