Title. I guilted myself into not lifting for a while only because people convinced me that it's bad for minimum wage employees, yadda yadda. You've all surely heard it time and time again by now.
While I can see how the argument might work in theory, I feel like there's little evidence that this actually happens though. Particularly in big cities like New York, San Francisco, Boston etc. those locations would probably garner enough revenue that they wouldn't close their stores anyway, plus they would always need people to staff the store. Do I have any reason to feel guilty?
