Pay will go from $2.13 to $15.00 for all employees.

Does that mean no more tipping ?
Restaurant employees should have their salaries taxed like other businesses.

In all seriousness, if you use CNN's Cost of Living Calculator a $15 minimum wage in a low cost of living area is similar to making a minimum wage of $44.68 in Manhattan NYC.

Well, I'm forced right now to pay for corporate welfare, and I don't want to.

BTW, how do you figure the fair market rate?

Because AOC pointed out Mississippi's low minimum wage, which is actually higher than NYC's minimum wage if you adjust for cost of living...let's use Mississippi as an example.

Per CNN:

Price difference in New York (Manhattan), NY vs Tupelo, Mississippi -

Groceries 53% more
Housing 618% more
Utilities 60% more
Transportation 37% more
Health Care 23% more

There you go!

AOC's arguments showed that she doesn't understand the simple economic concept of cost of living differences. How did she graduate with honors with an economics major? She has proven to be a dunce on basic economic principles taught in into to economics classes at the high school level on multiple occasions (i.e. she said unemployment is lower, because everybody is working two or three jobs and longer hours).

Depends on the plan you have, costs can vary greatly.
