45. Let me be clear.

 

I am not anti-$15/hr. I am very much for it. What I am looking for is are there areas where we are bing shortsighted? As I have mentioned I listened to liberal POC panel the other day and there were several who voiced the concern that this would hit their communities hard because they wouldn’t be able to compete. Such as restaurants against large chains, supply versus big box. My thought was that they are already having a hard time so whats the difference. But then I am not one of those small business owners and don’t feel the same pain. I do feel the overall economic impact of not having a society with enough to live on.

15/hr has to happen yesterday. Will it be enough and are there other circumstances that need to be looked at? How do we preserve businesses i stead of just accepting that some will die off. And if that is inevitable how do we help to ensure that those local small businesses are replaced with local small businesses?
