Raising minimum wage will raise something else: An army of robots taking away folks' jobs

vir

An interesting data point would be the effect of minimum wages on total wages: i.e. does raising the minimum wage lead to more money being paid out to the workforce as a whole or does the increase in automation lead to an overall drop?

Sadly, my current wages do not permit me the luxury of purchasing the paper to see if that tidbit is in there.
