Okay, here is a sad thread that just appeared today on another city data forum with the exact example I was talking about. Another honest American business dying out because they can't compete with illegals. And others post their same experience with this. Let's hope NC wises up before we lose too many good honest businesses here.

As long as it's not cost prohibitive, there is no reason why we cannot do this, though perhaps with a cutoff requiring it for businesses that employ more than 5 people.

And for those who say that the higher wages mean less profits for the employers which may cause them to struggle, you should consider that if the employees are paid higher wages, they would have more money to spend on the goods that the employer produces. Cause and effect.
