      There's no "sudden"about it. There are already large swaths of people working at crappy jobs, so the incentive already exists. Do you think that giving them a 50% pay increase is going to make them...

      For the record, I don't think it's a good thing to have no minimum wage, and that we should just leave the poor and unskilled to the mercy of market forces. However, mandating a living wage as a...
