You see, there was an interesting article in Business Insider Tech News titled "Foreign robotics companies find success in China," written by Jonathan Camhi published on September 22, 2015 which stated:
NPR Planet Money Correspondent Adam Davidson tackled the issue of manufacturing in the United States by examining the history of manufacturing in one town-Greenvile County, South Carolina. Greenvile used to be a textile manufacturing town where communities were defined by what factory you worked for. The jobs were great for people with little education. It was common for people to drop out of high school in order to start work. Manufacturing jobs in the United States was always a great option for people who might be unable or unwilling to go to college and get a law or business degree. Manufacturing gave a certain sect of the American population a chance at the American Dream. Over the years, as textile manufacturing jobs continued to be outsourced overseas, the factories began to close.
Notice the use of "deployed" instead of "employed" and consider how that might change in the near future. Remember China's labor costs are only a few dollars a day and they are rising ever so slightly, and they already see how they can save money, you think that wouldn't happen here if we get a 40% increase in minimum wage overnight by Federal Government decree usurping our personal right to free contract? Think about it.
Proponents of a minimum wage increase say it will not affect jobs, corporations or small businesses adversely. Well, I suppose that a slight increase in minimum wage wouldn't and it might keep the masses happy, but it won't be a net positive, every little increase will affect businesses, profits, capital investment and jobs. Let's talk a little bit about economics 101 and then let me light a fire under your rear with a robotic future reality if minimum wage increases are too drastic.
