61. Is he entitled I dunno.
I know alot of folks who commute over 100 miles a day to get to work in the SF Bay Area so that they can afford to live in the outlying areas.

But then there are folks living in the Bay Area for whom $50K isn't enough to live in the particular town of their choice. But does that mean that they should get a pay raise in order to meet the living wage for that area?

Maybe the CEO of a company could bring in his kid to do some of the Janitor work and pay the kid $6 an hour or bring in illegal workers to do it for that amount. Get a robot mop or whatever to do the work. It's not leaving much choice in the hands the people who do the hiring.

Now don't get me wrong. If you're for a more socialistic form of Democracy...then he this makes great sense. Just would take a major revamp in how we do business (make illegal alien hiring severely punished, get rid of unions and have government do that role, make it illegal for corporations to move overseas, etc.) --- please this is my stupid opinion so don't ask for links ---

It's noble, but it ain't something that can happen without major upheaval.
