Your boss will be paying $15 an hour to people who's contribution to the workplace doesn't equal that much, at least while they learn how to hold a job. You can ask, but he doesn't have a pot of money laying around, and he can't just pull it outta his a__. He simply won't have the extra money to give you. Your new colleagues will earn as much as you, without contributing nearly as much to the workplace. They will be getting the money that would have been your raise.

Since raising the minimum wage would force prices higher, if you do NOT ask for a raise, your buying power and standard of living will be decreased.

Yes....you would be entirely justified...

...and your employer would be entirely justified in NOT hiring dozens of inexperienced and younger workers in order to give you the pay you deserve...

..just like is happening now in places like Boston, Seattle and Australia .... where teen and unskilled worker unemployment is skyrocketing following mandated wage hikes...

You can ask. What your boss will likely tell you though is that any raise that you could have possibly gotten in the foreseeable future just went to your coworkers who were making less than $15/hr.
