  •  The free market (0+ / 0-)

    ... would supply these fast food workers with a living wage all on it's own, so the solution is to eliminate the safety net and allow the free market to work.

    And that is the conservative approach. It might conceivably contain a seed of truth, because without gov't assistance of any kind, people could not live in houses or feed their children at these wage levels, so unless children stop wanting to eat, workers will demand higher wages. In order to prove the validity of this approach, we need to trust them and not worry so much if a few (hundred thousand) young children actually starve to death waiting for the free market to correct the wage inequality on it's own (without the intervention of organized labor, God forbid).

    You will not be punished for your anger. You will be punished by your anger.
