Left Said Minimum Wage Hike Would Be ‘Good,’ Look What Happened To 7-Eleven

For quite some time, the liberal left has been adamant that a minimum wage hike was a “good idea.” Unfortunately for them, what’s happened at 7-Eleven is proving them wrong once again.
Local 7-Eleven franchises in Aberdeen have added a 25-cent fee to every transaction in order to offset the added cost of a minimum wage increase which took effect on January 1, 2017, effectively passing the ever-rising cost of doing business on to the consumer.
Signs posted inside at least three local stores read, “On January 1, 2017, minimum wage increased to $11.00 per hour. In order to continue the level of service our customers deserve a 25 cent per transaction fee will be added to each purchase. This will be listed as ‘Checkout Bag Charge’ on your receipt. This fee is in lieu of raising prices throughout the store. Thank you for your understanding.”

This is precisely the reason minimum wage workers do not deserve to be making $11 per hour; you don’t visit 7-Eleven for their stellar “level of service.” Likewise, a job stocking shelves or ringing customers up at a convenience store is not meant to be a career choice. The higher paying jobs, where consumers can expect to pay more for goods and services, are reserved for more highly-skilled workers.
Here’s just one example of how this added charge will hit the consumer:
Let’s say you frequent your local 7-Eleven Monday through Friday to grab a quick and cost-effective cup of coffee before heading into work. Well, that cup o’ joe isn’t so cost-effective anymore when you figure in the added money you’re paying to keep the store in business. Let’s say you do this fifty weeks out of the year, assuming you take a two-week vacation. That’s $62.50 per year just in added charges.
It might not seem like much, but just wait until other businesses start employing the same strategy as 7-Eleven to cover the astronomical cost of paying their workers $11 per hour or more. Add in all of the other taxes Americans are being strapped with, and it’s easy to see why it’s only getting harder to get ahead.
Tell us what you think of 7-Eleven’s new policy as you share this news if you are against raising the minimum wage!
