5. This is what pisses me off in minimum wage debates.

 

The most common argument I hear against raising the minimum wage is that if a business has to pay an hourly worker more then the business will “have to” lay-off some workers to make up the difference because they just can’t afford it.

Really?

Why is that NEVER a consideration when the CEOs or other higher-ups see massive salary increases every year?
