The challenges of fixed prices on books make it ever harder to afford, attract, and retain employees in a city that (rightly) has one of the highest minimum wages in the country and numerous other mandated benefits, from commuter checks to health insurance. Every other business in San Francisco can raise its prices accordingly, but with prices on the book jackets, we can’t.

Wait, is this a bookstore asking to be able to raise prices?
