But forcing wage payment by increasing minimum wage does not take into accountBusinesses that are not making a substantial profitThose who chose to hold wages and expand with the differenceThose that cant afford to have $10.50 hr laborJobs like agriculture that cannot operate in that wage rangeYou might have a point if you could show that wage disparity between the top 21% and the rest of society have remained unchanged, or that corporations are not making the same profits today as they did twenty years ago. That's not the case, in fact, some corporations are holding so much cash that shareholders are suing to have dividends increased. Jobs like agriculture that cannot operate in that wage rangeThey do in Washington State. This is the same ole tired argument, that if more money is earned by those at the bottom, business in the US will fail. It's just a mantra, nothing more.
