I'm Sure This is Going to Work Out Real Well

I had dinner in Oakland last night and came across this sign on the window of a cafe:



  1. I can just see it now.

    Progressive Shopper 1: "Finally a living wage for these poor individuals."
    Progressive Shopper 2: "I agree."
    Progressive Shopper 1: "I just remembered, there is a cheaper store outside of Oakland we can go to."
    Progressive Shopper 2: "That makes sense. If I have to pay more, then the purchasing power of MY wage decreases."

  2. Demand elasticity is no match for this sign. Who cares about economic fundamentals when you've got words on paper!

  3. Thank God this minimum wage conversation is nearing an end. I mean, seeing as how it's finally been determined that $12.25 is the exact wage that equals FAIR, we can move on to more important things.

    Like Rand's hair, WTF is up with that?

  4. Someone should black out the decimal on the 12.25 and see if it stimulates any brain activity in the leftists.

  5. Maybe the restaurant should split the bill into two parts:

    $27.92 meal costs
    $9.12 mandatory donation for financially struggling employees
