The Screwing of the Unskilled Young: 13 States Will Raise Their Minimum Wage in the New Year

Increasing the minimum wage will simply mean that those who are not productive enough to produce revenue for a firm greater than the minimum wage will find themselves unemployed. The effect is greatest on unskilled youth, who then will have nothing to do but roam the streets and get into trouble. Helluva plan.

Below are the state and local increases that will go into effect next week, as compiled by the Employment Policies Institute. Checkout the madness in Sea Tac, Washington. Will nearby Seattle do the same?

Arizona: $7.80 to $7.90
Colorado: $7.78 to $8.00
Connecticut: $8.25 to $8.70
Florida: $7.79 to $7.93
Missouri: $7.35 to $7.50
Montana: $7.80 to $7.90
New Jersey: $7.25 to $8.25
New York: $7.25 to $8.00
Ohio: $7.85 to $7.95
Oregon: $8.95 to $9.10
Rhode Island: $7.75 to $8.00
Vermont: $8.60 to $8.73
Washington State: $9.19 to $9.32
Albuquerque, N.M.: $8.50 to $8.60
Bernalillo County, N.M.: $8.00 to $8.50
San Francisco, Calif.: $10.55 to $10.74
San Jose, Calif.: $10.00 to $10.15
SeaTac, Wash.: $9.19 to $15.00

  1. "SeaTac, Wash.: $9.19 to $15.00"

    Are these fucking idiots ACTUALLY going to do it? Boy are the minimum wage idiots EVER going to get an education in economics....the hard way. You can only be so stupid but they have exceeded the limits here somehow. LOL!!!

  2. "Checkout the madness in Sea Tac, Washington. Will nearby Seattle do the same?"

    That's what they seem to Sawant...Sorry, couldn't help myself...

  3. It only applies to hotel and airport employees. I cannot wait to see how many lose their jobs, how many hotels close, and how many delays are directly related to this bullshit.

  4. Well, if those business/employers now forced to pay it won't be inclined to move out of town, then i certainly can't blame the commies.
    If you don't show dullards the consequences of their stupidity, dullards will have no reason to stop.
