Is minimum wage necessary?
There should be one to prevent companies with already minimum wage going down to something insanely low
What's up with these libertarians saying yes?
Yes. Otherwise people will become so desperate they would work for a very small wage, leaving everyone else screwed if they want to make a decent minimum.
Yes - industry can't be trusted to provide anywhere near a living wage
Not that minimum wage does this, but it is better than nothing
Minimum wage perverts a free market economy.
I have a hunch that you didnt mean pervert. Just a hunch.
No - that's exactly what I meant.
Minimum wage jobs are stepping stones for most. When min wage increases, it means high school kids or low skill workers become unemployable.
