I’m calling about the guy who’s opposed to raising the minimum wage because a cup of coffee is going to go from 79 cents to 93 cents. I’ll tell you, I’d be happy to pay 93 cents for that cup of coffee if I know the increase is going to paying the workers more money. I think people deserve their raise. Also, he says 20 percent of workers are college and high school kids. That’s baloney. A lot of these factories, they start at minimum wage.
