Raising minimum wage in Seattle has predictable results

Washington Post:
A ‘very credible’ new study on Seattle’s $15 minimum wage has bad news for liberals

Seattle officials wanted to help poor workers when they voted to boost the minimum wage, but a new study says they may have done the opposite.
It proves once again that liberals just don't get economics.  The attempt to treat entry-level jobs as something other than that leads to fewer of them and the impact falls disproportionately on the poor and minorities who need this leg up into the job market.  They also hurt small business which is the creator of jobs.
