Ok, am I missing something here?
There has been a big push recently by certain groups of workers in Seattle to get the minimum wage changed from $9.19/hr to $15.00/hr.
Where did these people come up with $15.00/hr? Is it based on anything or is it just a number they pulled out of their ass because they want more money and don't realize that this isn't how economies work?
If the minimum wage was raised to $15.00/hr, what would happen to all of the workers who are currently making $15.00/hr and worked their way up to that rate? What about those making $20.00/hr? If you raised the minimum wage by $6.00, it seem to me that this would just cause complete chaos, and everyone would in-turn want their own wages to be raised $6.00/hr which would just entirely defeat the purpose and just make the dollar worth less, driving up prices and doing absolutely nothing.
Am I missing something, or are these people idiots and completely out to lunch?
