Yes, because mathematically it makes no sense. If you take money from a business to give it to employees, who then return it by buying products, then at best you are breaking even.
On the other hand, if they aren't buying everything from their employer, then it is simply extra cost that must be made up somewhere, either by hiring fewer employees, reducing hours, or charging more for their products, among other measures.
Proponents of the minimum wage are ignoring the fact that businesses adapt, which means that the extra cost of this legislation will not be paid by them but by either customers or potential employees in one way or another.
If all websites displayed the simple textual ads that Google does, even if they weren't targeted enough to appear useful, do you think anyone would bother going through the effort of installing an addon to block them?
Tell me something, if everyone was so free, what reason was there for restraining the king's power through the Charter of Liberties or the Magna Carta? And have you never heard of the Guild System? You are talking about a time where people weren't free to work/own the land as they chose or even decide their own occupation.
How do people come up with this nonsense?
1. to cause to enter drop by drop (ex. instill medication into the infected eye)
2. to impart gradually (ex. instilling a love of learning in children)
