Easy way to show the

Easy way to show the fallibility of minimum wage laws.

Progressive: Minimum wage laws protect the most vulnerable of our society. People should pay more for products when minimum wage increases because it will support our country's lowest income earners. It is the right thing to do since, we are all a part of the social contract.

You: Why not ask congress to enact a law on a given day that forces all business owners to add a zero at the end of all their pay roll accounts and set a decree that all money is now worth ten times its original value? I mean, it is essentially what you are doing by raising minimum wage, except it speeds up the process.

Progressive: Why didn't I think of that before!?! I'm calling my congressman today..!!
