I never get the "people will lose jobs if minimum wage goes up."
There's no question jobs would be lost. The Market is nothing but one knee-jerk reaction after another. Last figures I heard were at 100,000 lost jobs from a $10 wage.
But the lost jobs would be far more offset by the number of families who would rise above the poverty line. And jobs don't just disappear. The lost jobs would be, as everyone agrees, service jobs... which one cannot outsource. Yet. (looking at you, robot apocalypse)
