nothing is wrong with trying to improve the system.
sticking a band aid on it that actually hurts other people? what exactly does "improve" mean?
If we are trying to improve our economic system by just jacking up minimum wage, we are going to fail. And make things worse in the process. minimum wage should be adjusted to match inflation. maybe every 5 years, or whatever. But you don't just arbitrarily double it because it becomes fashionable.
No, we solve minimum wage etc forever.
Each worker gets paid 1/2 their value to the company.
Ends it all in one move.
It should be criminal to pay less than that, while you get paid for not actually producing crap but stealing production thus value from your workers.
