And by check out, I mean actually read, not rely on some article cherry picking one bad thing while ignoring everything else.

Then you can check out the studies of any of the 22 times we have raised the minimum wage. Has our economy crashed yet?

Now, as suzzy has pointed out, any negative outcomes are always outweighed by the positive outcomes.

Why Does the Minimum Wage Have No Discernible Effect on Employment?

So, if you want to answer the question yourself, using the 22 different times the minimum wage was raised, feel free. Then I can respond.
So, you are of the opinion that there's no downside to raising the minimum wage? If not, what is or are the downsides? I'm asking you. Please feel free to answer with your own words.
