If the government demands employers raise the minimum wage to $10 per hour, what happens to the employee who is earning $10 per hour? Are the employers forced to raise them to $12 per hour?

Then what about the employee earning $12 per hour, are the employers forced to raise them to $14 per hour?

Then what about the employee earning $14 per hour, do they go to $16 per hour?

Think about what that will do to the selling price of that employer’s product.

Think about it.
