We did the math for you. You’re welcome. 
More here. 

and then you have the leftists doing the “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” in the background

do you really value your $2 above people making a wage that they can support themselves on. really.

Sorry, the heritage foundation is an arm of the anti-women, anti-gay, anti-trans, Koch Brothers who funded the citizens united ruling and are responsible for some of the shittiest things to ever walk the earth.
I trust their math about as far as I can throw the half a billion dollar building that they are housed in.

Here’s a more reliable source on the estimate cost increase as related related to wage increase, at least for McDonalds.
for those uninterested in clicking through, paying McDonald’s workers $15/hour would result in approximately a $0.22 raise in the price of a Big Mac, for about $31,000 a year at full time. That’s roughly double what minimum wage workers in America receive right now.

People who try to justify treating those barely scraping by as it is like shit and keep them in poverty are assholes. There are no excuses.

The funny thing is, I’d heard the $.022 figure before but then I saw the picture and was like “Oh that still doesn’t seem that unreasonable, you can still get a meal for under $10 a person…” it wasn’t until the commentary that I realized these prices were supposed to be scary. 
I guess that’s since the people for whom this would most likely impact their daily budgets are the very people the wage increase would directly benefit, and the difference in their paychecks would be more than enough to cover this price increase without negating the benefits?

Jeez you guys, i passed 10,000 followers on this dang ol’ Tumblr this morning! I haven’t been Tumbling that long and i’m just happy people are into what i do (or are following me out of spite, fueled by an undying rage, ‘cause that’s cool too). I shall do my best not to disappoint.
(I don’t mean this to be braggy, i really don’t, i just genuinely appreciate the interest and this is faster than writing 10,000 thank yous)
And just thank you all for being super nice. In all this time i’ve never gotten a mean note or message and i’ve gotten so many nice ones. If you ever wrote me and i never responded i promise i read it and i’m sorry i was too big a jerk that day to reply.You all are the best :)
