I agree. Pay minimum wage workers at least enough to support themselves, or better yet, their families too. Then we wouldn't need so much for food
stamps, rent subsidies, etc. and the workers can live with some dignity.
Of course, big business will HATE the idea of wage increases because they might cut into the huge profits which go to their stockholders and because
their management might not get paid a gazillion dollars a year. When the minimum wage goes up even a little bit businesses say they can't afford
workers anymore and threaten to move to Mexico.
