Now the fight for a $26 minimum wage is on. Why stop there? If 26 is good, wouldn’t $100 an hour be better? Why not $500 an hour?

Of course. Once you start down that path, the sky is the limit.

It reminds me of the old joke about Churchill and the prostitute.

After politely telling a Kroger a Kroger manager who wanted to have me come work for them that I wasn’t interested, he insisted that they pay the most of any grocery chain in the region(they don’t; ask my wife).
Annoyed, I told him that he would have to offer me what I’m on my current contract assignment as a NX CAD designer, technical lead. He told me that would be no problem, but almost fainted when I showed him my paystub.
I’m going to shoot for a $50/hr minimum wage, but I’d be taking a pay cut. (40 years drafting experience, and high grades from clients) LOL!

OMG… a failure of basic economic understanding…

Anyone with money saved away (cash, stock, annuity, etc)should be looking for Dean Baker and stop him before he devalues them more effectively than a hacker in your on-line bank account.
