To the Editor:
Anyone who thinks a 15-dollar per hour minimum wage is a good thing doesn’t have critical thinking skills.
Do people really think that business will simply absorb paying fifteen dollars per hour?
They will pass that on to consumers . And landlords will want a piece of that wage increase also and raise everyone’s rent accordingly.
Minimum wage was never intended to be a “living” wage as everyone thinks.
To make a living wage, one must increase one’s skill level or education.
There is no free lunch.
