I agree about wage for job rather than hours. Too many years working against deadlines and estimating effort in man-hours made me not see this from that point-of-view. This is an awesome argument against minimum-wage.
Employers has got a job to be done that he is ready to pay X dollars. He doesn't care how many people or how many hours it takes to do the job. He doesn't force people to work below minimum wage, but it could be the labor's decision.
An online example would be Amazon Mechanical Turk, where business can post work (that cannot be solved by machines but need human intervention) and people can pick-up work and complete them. There is no guarantee of a minimum wage or any such thing
