Of course its not fair because again that's not what liberals want.
There is no sympathy for the workers because the workers worked, and made money. They have their raises, and their $15 dollars, which they presumably wanted and needed in order to support themselves. The workers have that money, and they've used it. This is wholly irrelevant to what anyone else is making.
The worker shouldn't feel bad that other people are now able to make the same amount by working less because it's spiteful, childish, and idiotic
Why should other people make the same as I do? If they do, I won't be able to feel superior to them
. The answer is because your sense of superiority is less important than other people's ability to live dignified lives.
