13 Crazy Reasons People Resist Raising The Minimum Wage

One of the best things about the world we live in these days is that you can literally find the answers to any and all of your questions with a few clicks of a button.

If you want to know all of the reasons, for instance, that the minimum wage being raised would benefit millions of people who are barely getting by, well, you can Google that.

One of the worst things about the internet is that no one really vets what’s on there, so you can also find a lot of “opposite arguments,” and it takes a certain kind of mind to sort through both sides and figure out which one is grounded in truth.

Here are 13 reasons people oppose minimum wage that are completely batsh%t crazy.
