Minimum Wage = ZERO

The push to $15 per hour is a bust, creating new automation at fast food locations everywhere.

Now, it's going to push farm laborers out of their jobs too...

Get into some job that can't be automated, or you will be replaced. Raising minimum wage just makes it go faster... and take jobs that might not be worth automating otherwise.

If you've never watched "How It's Made," give it a shot some time.

It's amazing to see the level of automation in most of the spots.

Basically, the effort to get $15/hr is an attempt to get a high-end life for low-skilled workers. The problem is that this only hastens the efforts to eliminate low-skilled jobs altogether. There won't be any low-end $15/hr jobs - anyone who gets that wage will be doing high-skill work. Why this isn't obvious when most of the top leftist promoters in industry and technology are working hard to automate all the low-skill jobs is beyond understanding. They know it's going away... but still push the $15/hr anyway.

Why do leftists believe in Fairy Tales?
