Minimum Wage Claims Its Latest Victims – Ashley Furniture Slashes 840 Jobs In California

Clearly the implementation of a State-wide $15 minimum wage hasn’t helped “lure” business owners. On Friday, Ashley Furniture’s 840 employees working in the company’s production and warehouse facility in Colton, California became the latest victims of California’s minimum wage hike.  Ashley announced they would be leaving open their retail store in Colton, but would be relocating the production facility that accounts for most of the location’s jobs.

Gov. Brown Admits $15 Minimum Wage Does Not Make Economic Sense, Approves It Anyway

California Gov. Jerry Brown simply does not care about what will happen to citizens in non-urban parts of the state under a $15 minimum wage.

And then he signed it into law anyway.

Regardless of who or where the story is, you still spell “doofus” one way!

Enjoy the open thread…
