This will just create more unemployment.

The administrators could take a pay cut, & still be wealthy.

Most of the people receiving SNAP benefits have jobs.

So, the taxpayers are paying what the employers should be paying.

DST SyStems Inc sold itself rather than face a $15 minimum wage. They employed hundreds and hundreds of customer service staff at very low wages. $15 per hour would have bankrupted them. So they closed. They should have been paying fair wages and done so by cutting back on the multi million dollar compensation given to executives

According to Federal Government assessment IF the Federal Wage Minimum is changed to $15 per hour there would be 1/3 Million fewer jobs. The job loss would be the result of jobs now under $15 would being replaced by automation of those jobs for the most part. Then those who make less than $15 per hour now and lose their jobs would not have the job skills to get jobs paying more than $15. FACT!
