Why not really boost the minimum wage?

If raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour really won’t cause prices to rise nor increase unemployment, then why not increase it to $25 or $30 per hour?

That would make flippin’ burgers a true career opportunity that you could raise a family on.

And it would solve conservatives’ complaint that welfare benefits pay better than some jobs.

Since most non-government new job creation is by small business owners already struggling to put food on their own tables, why not ask them if they would have to raise prices, lay off employees, or go out of business?
