    :yeshrug:and we should be working less

    but the upper middle class/bootlickers/get out and get it! types are disgusted at the idea of warehouse workers and burger flippers actually enjoying and having a fulfilled life.

    Flawed argument. Thats IF you decide to peg it at what it was, when it was started.

    The peg is artificial and we should admit that.

    There IS a number at which a too high of a minimum wage is bad, so lets stop pretending you can just raise the floor and fix everything.

    Fact is, you shouldn't expect to be comfortable on minimum wage and it wasn't intended to ever do that.

    The minimum wage is literally the lowest you can be paid for ANY type of work you do for ANY job. Thats picking fruit to being an intern to flipping burgers to anything.

    ANNNNND only 2% of workers make minimum wage. Remember that. So if you raise MW, you're not actually targeting low wages themselves.

    sometimes I wonder if the consumer market stuffs themselves into holes that they can't get out of.

    Everyone has a $1000+ smartphone, laptop, and gear they renew every year or two that many people weren't spending 15 years ago.

    Are people just buying way too much shyt?

    I mean, yes wages are stagnant and I'm not denying that...but you've got people blowing dough on streaming, Netflix, and Blue Apron. Wheres this money coming from?

    So get a better job. Thats the problem with the framing of the arguments around minimum wage.

    I support having a minimum wage because its the government's job to prevent overt exploitation...but there is a point where you can't just pay people $100 an hour.
