It has actually made the news that there are people pushing for the elimination of minimum wage. Together with the fact that businesses seem to be doing whatever they can to eliminate jobs and the conclusion is inescapable. Conservatives want people to starve.
Now they do this in the name of “economic freedom.” But the fact is that they think if people are desperate enough to get something to eat, they can cheat them and make them work very long hours for obscenely low pay. They can impose terms that no one would accept except in such a state of desperation. This may be “economic freedom” for the wealthy. But it is economic slavery for the workers.
