An independent San Francisco bookstore says it will be closing its doors by March 31, despite having its best year ever in 2014. And it’s pointing at San Francisco’s newly enacted minimum wage law as the reason.
Here's where I say they're still as ignorant and indoctrinated as a fat pig in a sty:
“Although all of us at Borderlands support the concept of a living wage in principal 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.”
San Francisco voters easily approved a measure last November that would lift the city’s minimum wage from $10.74 to $12.25 an hour as of May and then gradually raise it to $15 an hour by July 2018. That hourly wage works out to a minimum salary of $31,000 a year for a full-time worker.
And there we go, folks. Although now that they're going to be unemployed, they'll have more time for their communing class, or their protest against cis-male hetro-normative patriarchy or whatever the hell liberal losers do when they're unemployed and not too high to move.
