I have mixed feelings on $15 minimum wage. On the one hand, obviously it greatly helps the standard of living for those who get the huge wage increase. On the other, a 100+% increase in pay with a zero increase in production is not good for business. Plus, the extra costs will be passed on to the customers. Finally, the non-partisan CBO has stated that a higher minimum wage will cost many 100's of thousands of jobs nationwide. And that was only to $10.10 per hour.
