The true minimum wages is $0. When an employer is compelled to pay more for work than the value received, this “net-negative” job will disappear. McDonald’s response to $15 minimum wage is automation–i.e., eliminate jobs that return less than $15/hr. This result is the obvious and wholly predicable consequence of legislating a minimum wage. The solution to minimum wage is to gain such skill that you are worth more to your employer.
This is what some people do for fun. I feel so inadequate.
