Advocates get $15 minimum wage in N.Y., immediately demand this

Give them an inch…

A new $147 billion budget deal in New York includes a job-killing hike to a $15-an-hour minimum wage, but that apparently hasn’t satisfied liberal advocates who scarcely took time to celebrate their conquest before calling for $20 an hour.

Citizen Action of New York, an organization that claims to “look for opportunities to create big changes in NY and the U.S.,” took to social media to complain that the new minimum wage wasn’t enough for New York City residents.

The post does not appear to be ironic or an April Fool’s joke.

A Bernie Sanders supporter, many of whom are under the impression that unicorns also exist, indicated that a $20/hour wage was necessary to live.

Then there was this reaction, quite possibly the most inane response imaginable:

We recently posted a guest column from a business owner who explained that the impending $15-an-hour hour minimum wage would be devastating to his business.

Todd Tesman wrote, “This incredibly damaging progressive brainstorm will be the death of small businesses state wide.”

What would $20 an hour do?
