  •  then why not decrease the minimum wage to (0+ / 0-)

    ten cents a day? Or better yet, tell everyone that libertarians want to repeal the minimum wage, just as they want to repeal workplace safety laws and environmental regulations. Back to the libertarian glory days of the 1890's.

    Give that a try and see how it works for you.

    •  Why are you opposing an increase in the min wage (0+ / 0-)

      that would benefit more people.  The higher the minimum wage is increased, the more people earning wages would benefit.

      Your comment is surprising, as I was arguing for a greater increase than what is proposed in the diary.  

      What is the limiting factor that says an increase would be counter productive?

      The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.
