I just have had to have a fucking argument with two self-centered assholes who insist that a $15/hr minimum wage is bad. They asked for evidence and I demonstrated where a) you can easily make the argument for $12, and b) Seattle was implementing just such a thing starting ins 2017, with full rollout by 2021.
And the response was 'but, other places are different'.
OK, so, for the cheap seats: FUCK YOU, YOU ASKED FOR EVIDENCE AND I PROVIDED IT. COUNTER THE EVIDENCE OR ADMIT THIS IS ABOUT YOUR SHITTY FEELINGS TOWARDS POOR PEOPLE, YOU SELF CENTERED ASSHOLES.
Huh. I usually feel better after such things. Instead I feel worse.
