Are you arguing that if minimum wage rises to x$, that all jobs below x$ will disappear?

Pretty much ... they will either be outsourced, shuttered or be filled by the black market

I like how you cite the CBO that 500k jobs will be lost, and ignore the part where they say that the wage hike will lift almost a million Americans out of poverty.

At the cost of 1/2 a million losings their jobs to do so ... that is too high a price as well ass an immoral one to impose.

By your logic if killing 500,000 people saves a milliion, than an acceptable exchange .... absolutely evil

I mean do you have any evidence,

Already sourced and you are ignoring

Because that's not how it works.
