I mean I'm no business major, and never was. But if you end up doubling the hourly wage of an employee times however many employees there are, you HAVE to increase your costs. If all businesses go through this because the minimum wage is now a "livable" wage, eventually all products will increase in price. Kind of the "old timers" who remember a loaf of bread costing 25 cents or something like that, and now I go to the store and a loaf of bread is $3.69 plus tax. My wage may be "higher" than it was for someone in my position back when bread cost 25 cents, but the COST OF LIVING has increased, too. And by the way, this is exactly what this economy DOES NOT NEED - especially at a time when Obamacare costs are about to kick in for so many people, and they're forecasting food prices (chicken, eggs, etc) to skyrocket.
