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.
