Of course, everyone is worth $15/hour, even teenagers who can't read and write, and retirees who have no idea what a computer is. The possibility that government schools are graduating large numbers of kids with no job skills and limited work ethic does not even occur to the fools that run California.
Gov. Jerry Brown Signs $15 Minimum Wage Law
Think of the Terminator clearing dishes from your table.
Why not $100/hour?
The good news is that Brown knows this is nonsense, 4/4/16 Sacramento Bee:
Brown, traveling to the state’s largest media market to sign the landmark bill, remained hesitant about the economic effect of raising the minimum wage, saying, “Economically, minimum wages may not make sense.”
But he said work is “not just an economic equation,” calling labor “part of living in a moral community.”
“Morally and socially and politically, they (minimum wages) make every sense because it binds the community together and makes sure that parents can take care of their kids in a much more satisfactory way,” Brown said.
