Oh that second paragraph. We see things like that all the time, and I have to ask, does anyone really think like that? You’re living hand to mouth, you might not have the energy to do the kind of analysis necessary to figure that out. You’re working, more money is more money. That’s your first thought. A lot of people never bother to move on from that.

For small businesses (less than 500 employees), the minimum wage is actually only $10/hr and and won’t be $15/hr until 2021. The shill the article quotes is from the “Washington Policy Center”, a member of ALEC.

“Some long-time Seattle restaurants have closed altogether, THOUGH NONE OF THE OWNERS HAVE PUBLICLY BLAMED THE MINIMUM WAGE LAW.”

So they basically admit that the article has no basis in fact, in the middle of the article.

re: #3 syphonblue

Restaurants are closing at high rates in almost all states. Minimum wage laws have nothing to do with any closings. Food costs are up 35% over the last 3 years along with more regulations, less traffic and a lower ticket per customer.

You cannot judge the profitability of a restaurant by how many people are in the establishment. Just because you got pants in the seats does not mean they are spending any money.
