    I don't necessarily think they should make $15/hour, but they should probably make more than they are now. The cost of fast food is already steadily increasing over the years while they pay their employees shit, so if somebody from McDonald's argues that they'd be forced to pass the cost onto the customer you should spit in their fucking face.

    Wonder what would happen if the farmer got $15/hour for the time he raised the cattle?

    Farmers are rewarded with other incentives. When you aren't working with the cattle you can have sex with them.

    Tough shit. The work they perform has minimal value. They are not worth $15.00 per hour.

    C3PO will do it for free after initial construction costs.

    When these lowly-paid workers get their check, it's spent (back in the economy) before night-fall, in most cases.
    When the rich get a payout, it mostly goes to an off-shore tax haven.
    A sharp rise in the minimum wage would do more for the economy than any tax cuts for the wealthy.

    No economic solution is perfect. There will always be unhappy people. Plenty more people are already miserable with the status quo.

    Objective economic reality trumps your immature take on the value of labor.
