BC's minimum wage hike could cost more than 52,000 jobs
A comprehensive review of more than 100 academic studies on the effect of minimum wages in 20 countries-- conducted by internationally recognized minimum-wage experts Professor David Neumark of the University of California and Dr. William Wascher, a U.S. Federal Reserve Board economist—found that the “overwhelming majority” show that minimum wage increases have negative employment effects.

Why Amazon Really Raised Its Minimum Wage to $15
In the coming months, the company will need to attract 100,000 seasonal employees in the US and once again try to dominate the holiday shopping season. It has to accomplish those tasks in an extremely tight US labor market—the unemployment rate recently dipped below 4 percent—where few people are looking for jobs. Wage hikes like Amazon’s have historically occurred in similar economies.
"This isn't really anything new," says Sylvia A. Allegretto, a labor economist and the co-chair of the Center on Wage and Employment Dynamics at the University of California, Berkeley. "It typically happens around tight labor markets. Don't forget that Amazon needs a lot of workers coming in for the holiday season."
Making hiring matters worse for Amazon is the fact that it has faced a steady onslaught of bad press in recent months about its labor practices both in the US and beyond.
Oooops, reality sets in...bezos wants HIS share of that extra money.
