The real effect of increases in the minimum wage is to raise unemployment. The less efficient employees, the newbies, the inexperienced, will be fired. This has always happened in the past when the minimum wage has been increased. The Democrats are now claiming that a refusal to raise the minimum wage is "racist," but the truth is that increases in the minimum wage hurt blacks and Hispanics the most, both in loss of jobs and higher prices for food.
To quote an old argument, would you rather be employed at $7.25 an hour, or unemployed at $10.10 an hour?
