One of the greatest things about the world we live in these days is that you can literally find the answers to any and all of your questions with a few clicks of a button.
If you want to know all of the reasons, for instance, that the minimum wage being raised would benefit millions of people who are barely getting by, well, you can Google that.
One of the worst things about the internet is that no one really vets what’s on there, so you can also find a lot of “opposite arguments,” and it takes a certain kind of mind to sort through both sides and figure out which one is grounded in truth.
Here are 13 reasons people oppose minimum wage that are completely batsh%t crazy.
13. What a mindset to have.
Just where do people get off?
12. Don’t assume the worst.
Unless you’re sure you’re right, I suppose.
11. This about sums it up.
And also makes you really angry? Maybe?
10. I hope that’s not what he’s lobbying for.
I honestly wouldn’t put it past people, though.
9. Those maths don’t add up.
Any way you slice it.
8. Define value, again?
Because things everyone uses seems to fit the bill.
7. We’re angry at the wrong people.
That’s how the man skates away with big profits, son.
6. That’s actually why the minimum wage was created.
So that anyone who worked 40 hours a week would be able to live comfortably.
5. Economics are fun.
As long as they’re not working against you.
4. This commenter made a fair point.
Also I think OP is confused about how much a “luxury” car costs.
He kind of asked for it, though.
2. They were so close to getting it.
It’s just about smacked them in the face.
That’s it. Just bless their heart.
I mean…oppose if you want, but please have some legit concerns and reasons, right?
