Common sense and a basic understanding of economics dictate that arbitrarily raising the minimum wage will kill jobs and pass costs onto the consumer.
Sadly, that has been a concept the left has failed to grasp and we constantly see liberal protesters demanding a $15 minimum wage regardless of whether or not businesses can afford it.
Here’s the latest example of that idea backfiring and hurting the people the left claims to be looking out for.
From The Daily Wire:
The left has been championing a $15 minimum wage for fast food workers for quite some time, not realizing that a higher minimum wage will cause fast food workers to lose their jobs to robots. Case in point: Wendy’s.
The Associated Press reports that Wendy’s has announced that they will be installing “self-ordering kiosks at about 1,000 locations by the end of the year” because they’re cheaper and ease the burden of long lines.
Be careful what you wish for.
