Watching the Democratic debate, I questioned the candidates’ thought processes on raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour.
I agree that it should be raised, but what are the consequences, which neither candidate mentions?
If a burger flipper gets $15-an-hour, what happens to the supervisor above him making $15-an-hour now? Is he or she supposed to get double their salary? Then the store manager to $50 or $60 an hour?
It goes on and on, spiraling upwards.
