At which point you quit and go work for McDonalds, if the work is really that much easier. They'll eventually have to do more than the $1 an hour raise or risk losing their workforce.

And there is part of the problem. Eventually the higher paying jobs will trend upwards some. Because of this, the products and services produced via that higher cost labor will also go up and we're back where we started.

Statistically speaking, no we're not. Inflation doesn't work quite that quickly, especially when what's being increased first is pay at the bottom. The poorest people are the ones most likely to put their money immediately back into the economy, and raising the minimum wage has been shown time and time again to stimulate the economy, rather than accelerate inflation.

Your thinking with Logic. Not all workplace owners do that.

Said workplace owners get to see their workforce going elsewhere for better pay, though.
