8. In the short term, you are right.

The economy would eventually adjust though. The disparity in income between rich and poor is far more important than an arbitrary dollar amount earned in any given year.

As food for thought, ask yourself how/if this would be any different than the 40 hour standard that was introduced with the New Deal in 1937.
