University of California President Janet Napolitano announced today that the minimum wage of thousands of workers on UC campuses across the state will be raised to $15 an hour over the next three years. Good news?

Apparently, yes … but there’s a “but.” University of California, Irvine physics professor Asantha R. Cooray is sad because he won’t be able to afford as many research assistants after the wage increase goes through:

Hey, for every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction … or something like that. What did he think would happen when the minimum wage was raised?

Overlooked? Not by us. More snark:

No, they don’t!

Ha! Probably.

Or Professor Cooray can pay for the researchers out of his own pocket, since he thinks it’s a “good thing” and all:

Pay up, professor!
