I have seen the pros and cons of what is happening in states where the $15 minimum wage has been adopted, and some of the stories are scary.  While some are cheering (perhaps most of those who think they are going to be receiving the higher wage) because they envision receiving wages that will allow them to buy houses and other things, the negative portion of this scene is that many, as many as, 5,000 people in Seattle alone have lost employment due to replacement by robots or a reduction in workforce.
