> Congratulations, you just solved food insecurity, the student debt crisis, high prices and corruption in the healthcare sector all in one-and all you had to do was make outsourcing and black market labor even more attractive than it already is.
This is entirely hysterical nonsense. We have the most corrupt, most expensive healthcare system in the world by a wide margin. And it only keeps getting more expensive as we keep cutting taxes for corporations and deregulating health insurance companies. You're just saying things.
>Not every business is a corporation,
The ones we're talking about are. You're just arguing to argue but you don't really have a point. Just talking points.
>and today's "living wage" is tomorrow's "minimum wage"
Yeah that's how inflation works. Time is entropy. You generally want to keep up to prevent the kind of economic catastrophe we are barreling towards. Cost of education, cost of living, cost of healthcare, cost of everything else has exploded in the last 40 years. Minimum wage has gone up by like $5. This has lead to the shrinking middle class, more debt, more bankruptsies, less expendable income, less opportunities for investment, less average savings, etc. Income and wealth inequality has exploded and upward mobility is stagnating. These are all what happens when you refuse to keep pace with the economy.
