Supply and demand: restrict the supply of labor so plutocrats have to raise wages to compete.
Would the “high paying” starting jobs go up to 17-18No. Think about it. At 40 hours a week, that's $600 a week. Subtract out taxes and health insurance, you're looking at maybe bringing home 350 a week. Yes, we all @@@@@ about our low pay and all expenses falling on us but if you can't make 350 a week plus expenses, I'm not even sure I would want you making my burger at McDonald's

All your doing is basically paying a higher tax unless they redo the tax laws. Remember who lowered taxes by atleast 3% across the board. Not AOCIf minimum wage were hiked to $15.00 an hour .Cost of Living would require $35.00 an hour.
In California I lived around the corner from Walmart Walmart and got to know most of the guys that worked there.
