What a surprise! Small businesses are closing at record rates and moving people onto unemployment lines. Who'd ever have thunk it?
When Seattle voted to raise its minimum wage to 15 dollars an hour, progressives and lefties everywhere hailed it as a victory for working people. What they never stopped to consider is that those additional funds have to come from somewhere and small independently owned businesses wouldn’t be able to afford to pay its employees. Shock of all shocks: with the huge increase about to take hold, small businesses are closing their doors in record numbers in the Emerald City.
This result seems to be amazing to Pacific Northwest Regressives. Oh, they call themselves "progressives", but they're not. They're just putting lipstick on a pig, patting themselves on the back, and ruining lives and businesses.
