The harder people fight for a 15 dollar minimum wage, the faster their jobs will be taken over by robots. We've seen videos of robots that frankly remind me of the RoboCop movie. The movements are eerily fast, smooth, and scariest of all, very balanced.
The 15 dollar an hour fight is why progressives bug me and why I am a moderate instead. The formula for the minimum wage is one that uses the national hourly average, and cuts it in half. The national hourly average is around 24 dollars an hour, so the minimum wage should max out at 12 dollars, with variances in each state based on the acknowledged wage scale in the suburbs versus the big cities.
I would raise the minimum wage to 10 dollars an hour immediately for most places, then offer an incentive in which the wage is raised every so often by 50 cents. The idea of a newbie getting 15 bucks an hour is absolutely ridiculous and insane.
The idea of a worker who started out at 10 bucks an hour and by staying at the same place raised their wage in 50 cent increments to 12 or 13 dollars an hour, makes a lot more sense.
