Moving the Goalposts on Seattle’s Minimum Wage

Look, disagreements and arguments over the $15 minimum wage are necessary and welcomed. Every policy idea, no matter its noble intentions, should be subject to rigorous debate. I do have an issue, though, when individuals brag about the ease of predicting the future, only to adjust their predictions when the future doesn’t go as they expected.
It’s even worse when you consider that Worstall’s opinions are the primary source for many others when writing about Seattle’s minimum wage. His devious methods are not harmless; they have real-world consequences and shapes people’s judgments.
