Just Compensation

For John, BLUFIf we pay some employees $15 an hour, won't others want more?  Nothing to see here; just move along.

Snow White and the Minimum wage

The New Yorker, which is famous for its witty cartoons, has one about Snow White on page 20 of its 2 January 2017 edition.

The picture shows Snow White in the kitchen, near the hearth, holding a broom, and the Woodland creatures talking to her.  The assumption is that it is the home of the Seven Dwarves, although Snow White doesn't yet know this.nbsp; The caption reads:

Look—we'll whistle when it's fifteen dollars an hour.
I see a problem with this illustration, by Mr Peter Kuper.

It it goes to $15 an hour they will be replaced by machines.

Unless, of course, they live in that magical kingdom known as The Coast.
