Minimum wage remains a dumb policy. Guaranteed income gives you a larger decrease in income inequality for a given decrease in economic output.
Raising minimum wage really does not help very much. The cost of everything will go up for businesses to cover the cost and what often happens is that the employee's will receive fewer hours. Combined with the more senior people will find that they are making the same as the guy that was just hired. Minimum wage may go up but union contracts do not change with it usually
Fear! Let fear control you! Use your fear to guide you! We are all going to die because of a few bucks an hour!
