Does Paying Workers More Hurt Business? A Complete Guide to the Minimum Wage.

“you have a mass of competing forces set off by the minimum wage — some pushing employment up, and some down.

    Raise the minimum wage, establish a “maximum wage” (100% taxation on income over $10 million… $50 million?), 0% tax up to income of $50,000, transfer of personal wealth over $1 billion to life-saving government program accounts, etc., and so on….

      I love your tax scale. Maybe greedy American elites would immigrate to another country. (I say, goodbye and good riddance!)

    I think Henry Ford found that when you pay your workers a decent wage they could afford to buy the products that they made. That’s just plain good for business.

      That’s absolutely right! It’s been said by many that consumers create jobs, not companies (by themselves, anyway).
