Great article, Tyler. Really emphasizes the problems that occur in government mandated wage increases. As someone who works in a grocery store myself at the moment, it seems inevitable (albeit not in the US). Personally, I'd love to see more wage negotiation on some level rather than a minimum wage set - although not sure how practical this is in the real world? This is something they use in places like Sweden, which have no minimum wage. They're still not immune from automation though!
