why is there no set maximum wage. I have always been baffled by that. There are some people who could get to a point where they can acquire all the
wealth leaving little or none for the rest but apparently that is okay.
There is no maximum wage for the same reason there should not be a minimum wage, a government has no right or authority to tell a free person how much
or how little they can make. The governments only authority in this is to make sure they make the money honestly. Obviously they have failed in
that regard. In fact participating in the dishonesty.

I don't disagree with what the government should or not be doing but that isn't really what I am asking. I am asking why the government would set a
minimum wage and not a maximum wage.
What is the agenda behind setting a minimum wage and not a maximum wage.
The only bone I have to pick on whether the government can or cannot say how much one can make is.. well if we live on some land and I monopolize all
the resources honestly till you and your family have nothing not even my scraps is that okay?? You and your kin would die as a result of me honestly
beating the shenanigans out of you on the resource competition. Is that acceptable??
Is it acceptable that a group that got a leg up on everyone else can get to a point where they will always be at that level and no one else ever
having a shot unless they exploit a new way to take away from the ones on top??
Have you ever played the game of monopoly?? why do people stop playing?? is it because they quit or simply because some one acquired all the
I am just looking at both sides. for the record I make a bundle and really have no financial problems nor healthcare problems but I am not blind.
There is a reason why a minimum wage was placed. what is that reason??
And why was there no need to put a maximum wage??
I would really like to know why one is in place and not the other.
