How many employees and applicants secretly resent their employers for not paying a "living wage?" Do you think it may affect their job performance negatively and noticeably?
One of many reasons why turnover has been so high. The young people have been infected by an "entitled" mentality brought to a religious fervor by the latest election cycle (ie. BLM, SJW, Bernie Sanders, etc.). Just look at how crazy the college campuses have been.
It's even worse here in California where $15/hour minimum wage has already passed.
They're only shooting themselves in the foot when future employers see they can't maintain a steady job. It's that same short-sightedness that sets them off on "trigger" warnings in the first place. Our precious, little snow flakes can't take the reality that it's what they PRODUCE for the employer that dictates the amount they get paid.
