Remember the proprietor of a San Francisco bookstore who closed his doors because of that city’s “living wage” law? Well, that poor man is under fire for speaking truth to power. The Washington Free Beacon reported the following:
San Francisco’s Borderlands Books will be forced to close as the city increases its minimum wage, and its owner Alan Beatts is tired of being criticized for talking about it.
Borderlands is a specialty bookstore that has been able to carve out a niche in San Francisco for the past 18 years. It has been able to support a staff of five, most of whom have been working together for more than a decade.
Yet, according to Democrats, this business owner is nothing more than a greedy, fat cat oppressing his workers. Now he’ll sail off to some comfy, vacation home in the islands without a care in the world while his former employees eat dog food.
