    If, as many claim, an increase in the minimum wage causes no additional unemployment, why don’t we follow San Fran’s lead and institute a $10 min wage?

    Why settle for $10/hr? Just make minimum wage $100/hr and we’ll all be able to live like the Wall Street bankers. 

    Unfortunately, on so many issues having to do with the Nation’s poor, the progressive analysis ends at what thoughtful economists would consider the “benefits” side of the analysis without considering any of the costs.
