Wait. You mean forcing small moms and pops to pay at least $15 an hour hurt them? And that big corporations are looking at automation which means fewer minimum-wage earners are able to get jobs?
Get outta here.
Who could’ve seen this coming?
Oh yeah, Conservatives.
Including Ted Cruz:
So often, liberal policies, born of good intentions to "help the poor," end up hurting them. Instead, we need more jobs, more opportunity. https://t.co/XeEPP6PCiJ

Every damn time.
Liberals think they know best, so using the government to force their crap legislation makes sense to them. And then when it fails HORRIBLY (like it is here) they scratch their heads and try and find a way to blame evil rich white guys.
When in reality, they screwed it up.
With ‘good intentions.
Equal opportunity doesn't always mean equal outcome folks
