Economics questions are very often decided on emotion, not facts or logic. Nowhere is this truer than on the question of a government-mandated minimum wage. In a recent letter, Mr. Livdahl cites the rising prices of goods and services as a call to raise the mandated minimum wage. He believes this will make it easier for people to get through trade school or college. If your thinking does not extend beyond the end of a bumper sticker slogan, you might tend to agree. After all, it feels so good to envision the benefits of a government-mandated minimum wage. Unfortunately, on this question, emotion and economic reality clash head-on.
Those who want to raise the minimum wage claiming that it’s too low to raise a family have not done their due diligence and do not know the history of that program. It was never, ever intended to be for anyone other than young people such as high school students to earn a small income while they prepare for college and trade schools. To raise that wage would cause the cost of products to go up, young people to lose their jobs and in many cases, the businesses to close. Why do liberals always want to fix things that “ain’t” broke?

A tour of Michael Pollack’s three museums show a man who revels in a past that started well before his entry into the world. One is loaded with memorabilia from bygone days, things that used to linger behind the glass panes on department storefronts to convert window shoppers into spenders. A couple other pieces have a “one of these things is not like the others” ring to it given their relative modernity, like the mini statue of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Minimum wage should be a livable wage. That is to say that a person working full time should be able to cover his or her basic needs (food, clothing, housing, health and transportation) without assistance from government. As the cost of living varies from state to state, then the minimum wage will also vary from state to state. The livable wage should be set by each state and companies should then use this to set their minimum wage.
