Will Increasing the Minimum Wage Usher in the Age of Robotics?

By FBCStaff-I know my democrat Texas State Representative really doesn’t want to double the minimum wage he just wants to make points with his base.
“The industry could be ready for another jolt as a ballot initiative to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour nears in the District and as other campaigns to boost wages gain traction around the country. About 30 percent of the restaurant industry’s costs come from salaries, so burger-flipping robots — or at least super-fast ovens that expedite the process — become that much more cost-competitive if the current federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour is doubled.”

So why isn’t he working on something more meaningful that would help his district?  For instance ethics reform?  I suspect that may not be a high priority with most representatives in the Tx House.
