I agree that the minimum wage is the way to go, but only when it equals a living wage. Minimum wage has failed to keep up with inflation for 40 years. Call it class warfare (I will), call it a sinister result of neoliberalism and deregulated capitalism (I will), call it a damn shame (I will).
So unions made it happen in Denmark? Okay, so where are our unions? Being destroyed by neoliberalists like the Koch Bros and their croney Scott Walker in Wisconsin. Voting with you dollar, like +John Karl Nuttall
said, isn't going to get you anywhere because they already have more than the dollars they need. You have to vote for those people that are willing to stand up to the system and throw the rest under the bus.
