Anti-wage boost group spends $114,000

Wow. That is one hell of an ugly UT editorial. It truly smacks of megalomania. But wait, lucky locals, we have a softer side of Manchester world: The corporate family of KPBS and their partner VoSD has repeatedly covered the minimum wage story by addressing the potential of loss of "financial freedom" of their media go-to guy, their bro, the popular, cool, self-made businessman, Matt Gordon (Urban Solace), if he is forced to comply with the half-way livable minimum wage ordinance. As he frames it in VoSD, putting a bit more pay in a worker's pocket won't come back to enrich *his* business: "*I don't have a crystal ball, but I'm pretty sure that someone who's making $10 an hour and now is going to make $11.50 an hour isn't going to all of a sudden decide to stop going to Walmart and McDonald's and Burger King for hamburgers and towels and sheets," he said. "They're not going to suddenly go to Urban Solace and stop at Pigment on the corner on the way out to buy a $200 candle because they got a raise for $1.50.*" A $200 candle? Is that the world he he lives in? Is the goal of a livable wage to be able to buy expensive restaurant food and overpriced decor? Jeez! Heads up, **unelected** business people: all of you who use the Manchester and other corporate-shill media to bemoan the Council wage decision, and who support government by referendum, will lose business from people like me. Please, won't some other restauranteurs and shop owners contact KPBS, the UT, and VoSD, and describe how hurt your bottom line will be, so I can know to add your business to my list of places to avoid?
