    •  Automation, salaried workers (0+ / 0-)

      At $10.10, it will cost less to automate or make salaried managers do some of their functions.

      For example:  We would lay off the guy that runs the floor scrubber and make the manufacturing manager stay late and clean the floor.

      •  it makes sense to hire a floor-scrubber at 8 bucks (1+ / 0-)

        •  It's a 25% pay increase (0+ / 0-)

          What if everyone got 25% pay increases even if they did not produce any additional work.

          Republican congressmen, PGA tour players......

          •  the minimum wage does not apply to "everyone", (0+ / 0-)

            only to the floor-scrubbers of this nation

            i can only assume that your company would be a lot "stronger" if they could get away with paying below the current minimum wage
