That would be a big-gov solution -- holding wages low.

My solution would be let the market determine wages.

Yeah tell people to go to work and do a great job for their employer, and you will be paid more.
How is saying that going to get a politician more votes?

Many do? I'm one of those horrible people who hires day laborers now and then and I pay them $15 usually. Per hour. But that's in the paved with gold bay area.

It's great that you pay what the market can bear and what you can afford. REALLY. That's as it should be.

I'm pretty sure paying what the market decides is how a lot of sweatshops operate...

Pure trust in the wisdom of "the market" isn't feasible either as we've long recognized that unfettered capitalism doesn't necessarily result in societal advancement or good, just as orthodox socialism or communism doesn't.

Well, somebody is doing something about this minimum wage thing. Right here in Oklahoma two cities, OKC and Tulsa, were about to have local elections on raising the min wage inside the city limits.

The lawmakers in OKC put a stop to that with a state law that says no city in Oklahoma can set its' own min wage. That can only be done with the state congress is in session and then only by them.

And they have made it clear they have no intention of ever doing this.

So.... There is someone doing something about it.

And the wishes of the voters of the two cities? Who cares about them. It is what BIG government wants in OKC that is important, not what the voters want.

You could be right, I don't know, having never heard of an actual unfettered free market in existence, other than barter. How come barter works?
