The standard of living in the US any way you measure it whether it be HDI, PPP per capita or a number of factors intertwined is worse in some of the places I just mentioned than in the US. How do you reconcile that a country like Italy or Austria has a lower HDI number than the US, a metric that focuses not only on the economic factors but also on education and healthcare? Your titanic of an argument is sinking quickly.
You also seem sour that you can actually fire incompetent or not needed labor in the US or....?
I think you aren't representing my argument at all, but only gaslighting your own views unrelated to minimum wage arguments.
What is your view? That we should have a higher minimum wage and a bigger safety net? Why? France, Japan, Canada, South Korea, Spain and even the UK deploy the same or lower HDI than the US and all of them subscribe to that theory. That tells me that the non-economic factors are not better and the economic metric in the US crushes those countries.
Go start another thread to push your world view.
This issue is about the US and 0.00 minimum wages in the US where there is not outside safety net for workers vs employers
