Beloved San Francisco sci-fi bookstore becomes casualty of minimum wage hike passed by voters |

by Rep. Bill Post

NOTE: This is NOT from Fox News….ABC TV in San Francisco. I get the concept (don’t agree with it) of wanting to help folks but the facts are it does not help. One of the best coffee places in the Willamette Valley recently told me that if this wage came to Oregon, they would just flat shut down. Funny thing is, this company serves the Capitol’s coffee. We must think more about ALL Oregonians, the $15 an hour wage is unfair to those who won’t get a 62% pay raise….that means pretty much 97% of us.…02008

"A voter initiative to raise the minimum wage is having the unintended consequence of pushing a beloved bookstore out of San Francisco's Mission District."
