Hibbs says that the $15-an-hour minimum wage will require a staggering $80,000 in extra revenue annually. "I was appalled!” he says. "My jaw dropped. Eighty-thousand a year! I didn’t know that. I thought we were talking a small amount of money, something I could absorb.”


Hibbs is not the first person to encounter this problem. On February 1, San Francisco’s renowned science-fiction bookstore Borderlands Books published the following on its website:


Although all of us at Borderlands support the concept of a living wage in princip[le] and we believe that it’s possible that the new law will be good for San Francisco — Borderlands Books as it exists is not a financially viable business if subject to that minimum wage. Consequently we will be closing our doors no later than March 31st.

Lol, liberals. SF is a cool place to visit but I wouldn't want to live there. There's homeless people everywhere, many of them simply prefer doing drugs all day to being productive. That's their choice. No liberal policy gonna "fix" that.

Like Seattle, SF is already a very expensive city where only the elite, in general, can afford to live. Because of this dynamic that may not exist where some of you live, there will be minor hiccups, but it will get sorted out, and almost no one will notice any difference.

Yes, some businesses will complain. Some may even decide to close down, but those businesses will be replaced, and very quickly, by businesses that can afford it. Everyone else will just adjust.

No, that does not make it right, but it is what will happen.

And, yes, you can quote me on this, all of you who live in Palukaville.

Why not scale min wage to the size of business? A compromise between those who want to eliminate it and those who want it to match cost of living index?

That's because, like all liberals, they support that stuff for everyone BUT themselves. Taking everyone's else's money for "good" causes is great. Suddenly, it is a totally different story when it is your money. Funny how that works...

So the stupid assed motherfuckers are just now figuring out that "living wage" laws are going to carry a hefty price tag?

Enjoy your twenty dollar Big Macs at McDonald's, dumb asses.

I suppose telling them that "when you use artificial controls to compensate labor at a higher rate than the actual market value of that labor, all you do is create inflation" would be of no use because, well, they're idiots.

No worries.

A larger company with cash flow will start comic book stores.

It would be as if Walmart or Best Buy start a comic store and it will look and feel as though it were a hole in the wall small business.

LOL.

California tax money is bailing out many other states that have negative federal tax receipts and has been for many decades. I am not a Californian. I am just correcting the misinformation you spew. It would take decades of negative CA tax receipts to overcome what CA has paid over the years. That is just truth.

I live in a deep-blue state (Washington), too, with positive Federal tax receipts. Things do not totally suck here. That's why we have positive growth every year, sometimes in the double digits.

People in states with net-negative Federal tax receipts and that folks also flee from can't relate. Ask yourselves, though: If things are so good where you live, why is there no positive population growth? People vote with their feet. Texans can probably relate, and because of a different state philosophy—proving that there is more than one way to skin the same cat, but also that if your state ain't skinning the cat, there is likely a reason, one that maybe you are not seeing.

Bolshevik. Those people in the tech industry in Silicon Valley are exactly where they want to be, and they can afford to push everyone else out. Indeed, they are the ones driving the insane real-estate market there. The lesser industries will move away, though, and that is what one would expect in a capitalist economy.

People who live thousands of miles away just cannot understand, sadly.

That is what it is.

Again, you don't know what you're talking about. The California economy is far more than Silicon Valley, and Silicon Valley is there because the people who work in that industry love the climate there. They are not moving, your wishes, notwithstanding. They will push everyone else out, and shape politics to their liking and to their advantage. Take that to the bank.

Silicon Valley can exist anywhere, CA doesn't have a monopoly on nice weather and pretty scenery.


There's plenty of places they could go now, but it seems they don't. I would also suggest that the primary factor that tanked Detroit isn't applicable in SF.
Droughts and continued BS from Sacramento will push them out eventually.


The people that run SV also pretty much run Sacramento. I've spent enough time around ultra-wealthy coastal Democrats to understand that they simply don't think in ways conprehensible to flyover country middle class Americans.

However, judging by the level of stupidity most libs operate at, I'll bet many of them actually thought the homeless bozos were going to get cleaned up and go to work.

Now look at it.

Yes, some businesses will complain. Some may even decide to close down, but those businesses will be replaced, and very quickly, by businesses that can afford it. Everyone else will just adjust.


No, that does not make it right, but it is what will happen.



And, yes, you can quote me on this, all of you who live in Palukaville.


I live in South Beach, a lot of people don't grasp how much money there is flowing through SF.

Never going to happen. Sadly SV is a ingrained part of IT. Well.....it could happen...when CA slides into the ocean...

It will be ugly when Cali finally collapses.


Once Silicon Valley has had enough and moves on, it is game over.

No worries. The American taxpayer will bail out California. Give it some time.
LOL.

California tax money is bailing out many other states that have negative federal tax receipts and has been for many decades. I am not a Californian. I am just correcting the misinformation you spew. It would take decades of negative CA tax receipts to overcome what CA has paid over the years. That is just truth.


I live in a deep-blue state (Washington), too, with positive Federal tax receipts. Things do not totally suck here. That's why we have positive growth every year, sometimes in the double digits.


People in states with net-negative Federal tax receipts and that folks also flee from can't relate. Ask yourselves, though: If things are so good where you live, why is there no positive population growth? People vote with their feet. Texans can probably relate, and because of a different state philosophy—proving that there is more than one way to skin the same cat, but also that if your state ain't skinning the cat, there is likely a reason, one that maybe you are not seeing.

TPM is Talking Points Memo, one of the most liberated sites on the innerneck. It is nothing but libtard push-"journalism." I'm sorry, but I am not going to accept their numbers as meaning anything useful.

Assuming you are correct, I guess our best hope is that Kalifornicate breaks up and falls into the ocean and floats off to Russia or China.

It's a book store their days were already numbered anyways. No need to buy books anymore when digital copies are cheaper and more convieniant. Whether they supported it or not my thoughts are under 5 years till there are no more books stores pretty much at all.
