Society has a way of balancing things out when the rich get to

be too powerful.

You can rationalize all you want, that employees don't have to make a "living wage" if employers feel that they don't want to pay it. There is always somebody willing to work cheaper in bad economic times. And without a minimum wage unscrupulous employers will try to force that wage as far down as possible.

The more you rationalize it the more fair it seems to be. But what goes around comes around. Hardship and economic disparity has a way for producing rebellion and revolt.

There is a steep price to pay, if society allows the rich to suppress the poor without the dignity of even having a "living wage".
