Comment Bullshit (Score 1) 940

The fact that labor wants compensation of any kind will spur automation, as soon as automation costs less than the minimum pay that labor will accept. The $15/hr min wage is just a convenient excuse. And using it as an excuse makes reasonable conversation about the ideas of minimum wage, living wage, corporations' roles in society, and automation in the workplace nearly impossible.
