Jobs are going away, and hours are being cut.

The fact has been proven time and time again that imposed wage hikes cut jobs...and the folks who are the supposed target group for the hikes are not usually impacted as they already make more than the new minimum.

However, it sure sounds good to those who shill for Government controls on everything, and it does get the votes from the "gimme" set.
