Oh, but Dave, it can be such a profitable strategy in the short run. That’s why Wal-Mart’s CEO has urged an increase in the minimum wage. In the long-run, of course, you give the left more power to determine what you can and cannot pay employees.

They go out of business, and Wal-Mart expands its market share.
Of course, getting the left to understand that about the minimum wage makes one feel like the proverbial one-legged man at the a** kicking contest.
