Thank you for recommending this post to our Best of feature.

Heck, if a $1 wage increase is fine, why not raise wages by $2? $5? $10?

LOL! That's the argument Rush Limbaugh used a few years ago. You should have seen the consternation he caused.

But the argument is valid. People don't mind the 18 (or so) month wage cycle (i.e. retail prices rise approximately 18 months after a minimum wage increase) but get upset if it's sooner and bigger?
