California votes for higher unemployment and few opportunities for young minorities
Every time the Democrats raise the minimum wage it increases unemployment of minorities trying to enter the workforce. It has contributed to the ghettoization of many American cities because fewer people can get the experience needed to get on the employment track. What is really happening is they are giving raises to unions whose salaries are based on the minimum wage rather than productivity. The move is bad for small business and the economy and is terrible for young minorities.
The proposal, which still must go before the state legislature, would give California the highest minimum wage of any state.
