The minimum wage in Virginia is $7.25/hr.
The living wage in Richmond is $12.34/hr (varies from locality to locality).
Ralph Northam has taken the audacious step towards embracing the pro-robot future, stating that he is indeed in favor of $15/hr mandatory wage controls.
Virginia’s minimum wage just isn’t enough to raise a family—that’s why I support raising it to $15 an hour. https://t.co/br3zP7LIbA

Add this to the fact that Northam was pushed so far to the left during the Democratic primaries as to oppose Virginia’s right to work laws, and we have a dagger aimed right at the heart of every small business in the Commonwealth.
Of course, one assumes that the robots won’t mind.
