Millennial SJW's Find Out Running a Business is Tough

There was fanfare, ballyhoo and much "hurrahs" going on a short 10 months ago.  Why two up and coming hip millennial cooks were going to open up a restaurant.  And you know what?  You know what?  You know something?  Yeah!  Guess what!!!

They were going to pay their employees $15.  Oh!  And vacation and benefits!

Yep!  That's right!  Because they care!  Because they're down with the struggle!  And that wages are purely arbitrary and controlled by big corporations!  We'll show economics and the labor market!  We are going to pay $15/hour because we want to!

But a short 10 months later, it looks like the restaurant Byte ummmm..."bit" the dust.  Not even enough time for it's employees to likely cash in on that "vacation time."

I know you millennials (and a lot of you older people too) think economics and things like "wages" are just fabrications of large and powerful entities of the economy.  They are not derived from the forces of supply and demand, nor are they affected by the expense of running a business.  And I know not a single one of you can be bothered with things like an accounting class or learning how to put together an income statement.  It just wasn't part of your indoctrination education where you were told you'd fart out gold bricks and everything would come out rosey.

But some day, just like "Mark and Travis," you're going to have to face reality.  And when that day comes, you're going to realize just how little you know, how poorly your teachers and professors lied to you, and just how woefully prepared you are for the rest of your life.  And for the rest of us who live in the real world, it's going to be great to see your smug, condescending, know-it-all asses get the ever-living shit kicked out of you by the real world.

But by all means, please continue tell us how we should run society, when you can't even keep open a god damned cafe.

There should not be an apostrophe in 'SJWs', as it is plural, not ownership.

Otherwise, your post is great.

Their core mistake was not waiting until inflation made $15/hr below market wage.

Sadly the concept of the minimum wage has created this idea in many that wages are NOT associated with supply and demand. Again its the old story that what the govt touches it destroys.

I admire their initiative, even if it was a hard lesson in market economics. Starting any business venture takes guts and determination. The school of hard knocks is a good teacher if they take the economic lesson to heart, and perhaps they can now go on to better and greater things in the world. Therefore, I won't criticize them for their experiment or it's failure, unless they try to bring out the old Marxist cannard that "it just hasn't been tried properly yet."
