    Conservatives have been shouting from the rooftops about how bad of an idea raising the minimum wage is, how it will negatively impact businesses, who will then be forced to reduce hours for workers, let staff go, or worse, completely shut down.

    As you might have guessed, lefties ignored this sound economic advice in favor of bleeding heart emotionalism, saying anyone against raising the minimum wage hates the poor and is defending the wealthy, which couldn’t be further from the truth, but facts have never gotten in the way of liberal insanity before, so why would it start now?

    Well, Seattle decided to bump its minimum wage April 1, and it’s wreaking havoc on local businesses, like this family owned pizza restaurant that is now being forced to close its doors because of the hike.

    I wonder if Seattle-based Starbucks has followed suit?

    Not that I'd probably go to a Starbucks anyway. IMHO, $5-$7+ for a cup of Joe is pretty much out of my price range anyway.

    (Of course Bro Rev Mitchell never has had nor ever will have that kind of problem, right?? :tongue3: )

    Starbucks coffee is lousy I wouldn't go there if it were 5 cents. I will stick with my Eight O' Clock Coffee.
