A professor of physics at the University of California, Irvine, tweeted Wednesday that the increase raised wages for all University of California positions to a minimum of $15 an hour was a great thing, even though he would be negatively affected by such policy.

Professor Asantha Cooray supports the plan, even if it means he can't have undergrad researchers.

Some people called out the professor on his logic.

Professor Cooray then tried to find a way for his team of researchers to continue has hired staff without having to pay the increase minimum wage.

Thankfully, someone was able to calmly talk with the professor about the difficulties of free market.
