    again you are missing it by a mile.
    In your case the raise $1.75 min raise would translate into maybe a $0.25 raise for joe. This was from study after study on minwage increases and how it effects all wages. From 25%-50% of the new min you see pay bumps. The amount increased is smaller the farther you are from the new min. That is how the market will react to it in reality.
    The min wage needs to be increased and then needs to be peg against inflation. It should of always been tied to inflation.
    This is not what happened to me in the last raise.

    I went from $6.83 to 7.25

    Guy who had been there longer went from 7.30 to 7.30

    Our manager went from 8 to 8.

    it affected no one but those that were under the new minimum.

    NO ONE got a raise the next year.

    You are looking at immediate effects. On top of that it is one place. Compared to the whole. This was a long term effect.

    Also you are looking at retail. Your counter argument is based on the flip being switch.
    But oh let's not have wage increases. Let's give efficiently pay cuts every year.

    Welcome to the real world. Your pay in relation to minimum wage isn't linear, in fact in most cases anything above the proposed increase would in effect net most everyone zero increase. As the owner, it doesn't affect them and they don't have to play around with increasing their prices to adjust to the increase labor costs.

    If you put more money into the working class's hands, they're going to go out and buy. If they're going to go out and buy, guess what, that means companies will have to hire more to keep up with production, or they will miss out. As opposed to giving that money to the wealthy who are just going to ship it offshore. I'm not sure why that's such a difficult concept to understand.
