Will costs and prices increase if the poorest get a $15 minimum wage and so have enough to live on without government or charitable donations? Yes, of course they will.
But that's negligible compared to the costs and taxes we pay or debt we and our government incur to cover the out of control FIRE sector profits and CEO salaries. If all the billionaire investors, bankers, CEOs were taxed at a fair rate according to their income, capital gains, profits and net worth, we could use the proceeds to retire all debt and support the lives of those in economic distress due to the greed of the few at the top.
If you want to stop the bleeding that's killing you, work on the shark bites and forget about the mosquitos. If you think an economy that works for us all can be had by depriving the poorest of a chance at life you'll need to get your head out of your conservative ass, because you're just not seeing the light!
