Minimum wage hike demotivates employees

The other day, I went into a McDonald’s to buy coffee. I overheard a few employees chatting about the effect of the minimum wage on employee motivation and productivity.  One employee said that the minimum wage hike has levelled the playing field because now people who do not want to work hard still get paid a lot.  In her mind the minimum wage hike in Ontario just demotivates people willing to work hard.  Do you agree?.
