Ninety percent of fast food cooks will be affected by D.C. raising the minimum wage

Minimum wage impact

D.C. recently passed a law gradually increasing  the minimum wage, from $8.25 to $11.50 by 2016. According to a report by the D.C. Fiscal Policy Institute, this will affect ninety percent of D.C. fast-food cooks.

I don’t have much more to say about that, except it’s a damned shame we have to have this job-killing minimum wage, because corporations would be paying workers way better without it. Or something. Unleash the free market or whatnot.
