Look at Newton's third law for the reason
While we dislike the ending of cashier jobs we have to consider Newton's third law that states "for every action there is a corresponding reaction." Higher minimum wage regulations are simply offset by lower employment numbers. The pie is the same size but some get a larger slice while others get nothing is the liberal dream. By making more individuals dependent on the Government assures that the D voting Frees Stuff Army continues to grow.
We need lower prices not higher wages to grow the economy. None the less the usual liberals get elected by buying votes with promised regulations to raise minimum wages. These regulations actually work against the greater good but that doesn't matter to the liberals. To them it is get elected at all costs regardless of the overall effect to the economy and the country as a whole.
