If you want fewer jobs in Arkansas, just keep raising the minimum wage. Don't complain about youth unemployment when most youth are not working at a level to deserve $12 an hour.

A farmer friend of mine years back was a very hard worker.

A couple young town kids asked if he ever hired help after school or on the weekends.
When he said " yes", they asked how much per hour they would get paid.

"Depends upon how long it takes you to do an hours work ".....he said.

Reminds me of raising the minimum wage w/o demanding more productivity.
