This would severely hurt small businesses, and markets that can not support the wage increase. Just look at Seattle. Lots of mom and pop small businesses had to close because they couldn't afford the new minimum wage. It also means the cost of living goes up. Most drive-thru meals are at $5 to $6 now. This would raise that to $10 to $12 per meal. Most people cant afford the price increase. Minimum wage is entry level work. You want more money, get another job, or work towards a higher paying job. You are not owed anything.
