Raising minimum wage doesn't not lose jobs, it cuts into profit. When you get to the point you're hiring employees in a small business then you're making enough money to support yourself and the business. If you can't afford another $50-$100 a week for an employee then you can't afford them to begin with.
“There is no such thing as a weird human being. It’s just that some people require more understanding than others.” - Tom Robbins
