Good to see you drop in Randolf! sorry I missed you. Been super busy with "Dad" stuff lately.
I agree with what you are saying here but I have to add that there is more to this situation. There is another level to consider first… What we are debating in all this is how to treat the "symptoms" of a failed economy when we should be curing the "disease". The true root problems and disease are taxes, fractional reserve banking, and the purchasing power and value of the dollar.
2 dollars an hour is good pay if 2 dollars will buy you two wheelbarrows full of goods instead of it costing 15 dollars for only one wheelbarrow of goods. And this is an issue for not just an entry level employee, it goes up the chain to employers, vendors, and manufacturers. This affects everyone in an adverse way and we need to go back to the Gold/Silver standard and stop printing counterfeit money that has nothing tangible to back it up.
