Consequences of raising minimum wage

There is something called the “conservation of matter.” Everything that’s here on Earth has always been here and will always be here in some shape or form. We cannot get rid of or add to the stuff we already have.

Like matter, the monetary supply is also finite. We cannot give some to someone without taking it from someone else.

To raise the minimum wage nearly 100 percent means that we have to take it from someone else.

Who are they going to take it from? Look in the mirror.
