You understand that the wage wouldn't double the day after this is passed right?

It will go about about $1/yr until it's at $15 in 2020 or so.

And $15/hr in 2020 still won't be enough.

This year minimum wage is now a full dollar/hr less than pre 1980 wage. http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0774473.html

So basically wage have gone to shit since Reagan took office.

I do recognize that this will be gradual, but many places barely meet overhead. My pay will likely not scale linearly with the entry level pay, though my work is more intensive. That is the main qualm I have right now.
