Heh. Across the country, the coffee chain today raised prices on their brews by 1%. Ah, but in the Progressive Seattle area, where "leaders" have been mandating $15/hr. minimum wages, the increase is more like 4%. That doesn't sound like much either, until you realize that for the addicts who buy a daily latte or mocha - they'll each be paying an additional $75 a year for their fix.
The Progressives apparently just assumed that companies would simply absorb the mandated increases; who'd ever have anticipated that they might pass their higher costs right along to the consumers?
