Raised Minimum Wage

Yes, this will be happening if/when the minimum wage hikes to $10.00 an hour or even as some proposed, $15.00 an hour becomes law of the land. Some otherwise very intelligent people strongly feel that the employer should personally take a pay cut so that every low hourly wage employee benefits from the wage increase and no one gets laid off.  We are well down that road where you end up in a cul-de-sac of mixed socialism and communism.

I use to think that wealthier people owed those making less money more pay. That is leftist thinking. Now that I think the opposite, I cannot get over how so many people feel wealthier employers owe their employees more of their personal profits. Some of these same people are okay with raising taxes to help equalize pay and benefits for everyone. Why are more and more people so into the government taking from those who are reaping the benefits of  establishing a successful business?
