The other thread had become VERY long...and had some great aruguments...so I thought that maybe it was time to start a Part II.
This may have been covered in the last thread...and I ask it sincerely, because I don't really know the answer.
It seems to me that we are arguing "Apples and Oranges" when I listen to all the Minimum Wage arguments.
In other words; it seems like "Minimum Wage" and "A Living Wage" are being used interchangeably in the arguments that people make...and they seem like different issues to me.
I would think that is no one would argue the value of some standard "wage minimum" except for the one who wishes to get as much labor as they can for nothing. Yet I feel that the concept of a "Living Wage" can certainly be debated.
Am I off here?
