Should we raise the minimum wage?

05 Feb

John Green makes some good points.

I have favored replacing the term “minimum wage” with “living wage.” There’s no sense in having a mandated minimum wage if someone working full-time at that rate still requires public assistance because they are below the poverty line. I don’t enjoy subsidizing the profits of the Walton family because it’s in their best interests to not have their employees die of starvation.
