I understand that
There's always a negative

But in this case I believe the positives far outweigh the negatives

Who do you think pushed for these regulations in the first place?
These unions have been the front figures in pushing for these regulations you're now fighting against.

Many of these businesses were implementing the labor unions demands long before government officially put it down in law.

The government essentially just stepped in to fix a problem that was already fixing itself.

But my position on government is that it's largely I'm FAR from an ancap by the way unnecessary and creates a burden on businesses and individuals through unneccesary regulation.

To base workers rights on something as fragile as unions is silly

Firm regulations and stability is much preferred

Labor Unions of the late 19th century is largely what created better hours, wages, and safer working conditions for thousands of workers in the Steel industries. Successful labor unions have done far more for the average worker than the government ever did through regulation.

If I did misrepresent you I apologise
It's the general vibe I get from this board and I tend to group people up in one category. It makes it easier to keep track of things but is unfair to the individual.

Some regulation is needed
The point of minimum wage is to ensure workers can get by. If it's to low there's a problem and if it's to high there's a problem. Striking a balance is key.
Just like finding a balance between the left and the right.

I understand the reasoning behind a minimum wage. It's hard to look at it and say "obviously this isn't something we should be doing."

But a minimum wage does have negative effects.
