For companies, the application of wages is a cost on their balance sheet.  Remember that they are in business to make money, not provide a job.  The presence of a job means there is an amount of labor required to create a profit.  The higher the politicians raise the requirement of this expenditure on a business, the more common this sight will be. After the initial expense, they don’t call in sick, show up late, or spend time on the phone.
