minimum wages

If we raise the minimum to $9/hr we are still behind Germany, Ireland, England, the Neatherlands and others. I think we would rank 9th.

One thing minimum wage workers don't have to worry about in those other countries is?
Healthcare.
Paid for - single payer systems.
Businesses can AFFORD paying higher wages because they don't have to worry about providing health care to their workers.
An interesting conundrum
