Mary Ann Dunwell, a Democrat from Helena, wants the minimum wage raised to $15 an hour in just 16 months.

Okay, so what does the employer get?

If someone is cooking 100 hamburgers a day then still cooks 100 hamburgers a day, guess what happens? It's great for the state, they can disguise a tax increase and play on the heartstrings of compassionate people. They are playing the fairness card in their quest to make everyone equal. I feel sorry for the people who over the years got their wage up to $15 dollars an hour based on hard work and achievement. What a slap in the face to them.
