Walmart Makes HUGE Move After $15 Min. Wage Hike

Democrats rallying for a $15 per hour minimum wage hike in Los Angeles were victorious. The city has apparently instated some sort of an ordinance mandating that stores pay a new minimum wage of $15 per hour. Walmart made a huge move after learning of the new wages they were being FORCED to pay their laborers who are often unskilled. This Walmart in LA refused to pay so much for such little work and they just closed their store. Just like that! They closed the entire store instead of paying people $15 per hour. Now instead of people having a job and earning any money at all, they’re unemployed and on the streets scrambling to find a new job! What’s worse? Having a job that pays less than $15, or having no job at all? No job pays $0 per hour.
And who does this hurt the most? Well, the store is in LA, so possibly hurts minorities more than anyone. Democrats literally just hurt their own voters. Not only that, but didn’t we learn from Seattle’s failed disaster of the $15 minimum wage nonsense? The restaurant industry was partially devastated in Seattle where almost 1,000 jobs were lost because businesses could not afford to pay higher wages to everyone working there.  Don’t even get me started on the fast food workers getting $15 an hour when they can’t read or can’t get an order correct. Fast food workers shouldn’t get $15 an hour because they require minimal skills, much like the basic job at Walmart. Not to knock anyone who works there, but if your job is to make sure the shelves look nice and you can’t even do that right, then why would you deserve $15 an hour?
If you work somewhere for a few years and earn your way up to $15 an hour, then that’s fine. But some teenager who sits on his or her phone all day at Walmart doesn’t need $15 an hour. What are they doing to earn it?    Read more.....

If the workers aren't getting paid enough, they could quit. Now they'll all be on unemployment and welfare. Thanks a lot, politicians.
