Confession: Every time someone argues that raising the minimum wage will destroy the economy it makes me wonder if they're mathematically challenged. A 70% retail consumer-driven economy requires a population of gainfully employed laborers in the workplace who purchase goods and services in the marketplace. In legitimate supply and demand capitalism, living wages for the masses support and expand the economy from the bottom up.
BATAF: Siphoning resources away from the masses stabilizes the country's finances.
