How does that defeat everything else I have said?

What a load of carp!
Tell me the casino was so broke it could not afford to run these extra prices! Who ever heard of a casino that was short of cash!? LOL
It is the disingenuous way in which they do their accounting which is behind this. Sure, perhaps the restaurant was running at a loss, but it was owned by the casino which I bet makes millions. By making this a separate entity to their central business they were able to reduce their tax burden, making huge savings, whilst the place was still doing business. Then once they had to pay their people a fair wage, they shut it down rather than pay back some of that additional profit.
This is what is wrong with the corporate world, especially in the USA. Greed before compassion - profit before people.
Was the restaurant part of the casino or a separate contracted enterprise in it?
There is a difference. If the restaurant isn't actually part of the casino, but only a contracted enterprise, then why should the casino care?
IF the rich don't want to pay a living wage. FINE,
don't let THEM make ANY profit..
And next hopefully people will find ways to destroy them. When 10 hungry unemployed people KNOW the rich guy has food. Hopefully they will take the rich out.
If everyone cant be rich then die fighting and making sure NOONE is.
See, the collectivist mindset has it that making a law will make people more "moral". It won't. It will just force them to be more surreptitiously immoral. Starving them out, now THAT is the way to change a mindset! When they find their system is no longer working due to a lack of sufficiently motivated peons, they will have to change or die.
Most choose to change over die, because death is so permanent...
See, people pay more (even wage-wise) for quality. When all the quality peons stampede over to Robber Baron A and his bigger wildebeest, Robber Baron B is left with the dregs, and that ain't no way to run a successful business - not if you intend to STAY in business...
