      I see your point. Having no minimum wage would leave salaries up to the free-market, and that may actually increase the ‘minimum’ wage. In many ways the minimum wage creates an artificially low wage that companies can pay, and we’d be better off without that. My concern is that employed people can’t even afford a place to live – I volunteer at a homeless shelter where 1/3 of the ‘residents’ have fulltime jobs, but they still can’t afford a place to live – I think that’s horrific. (This is in NYC, so life is more expensive here and makes it harder.) Thanks again for your comment.
