People volunteer to work for an agreed wage. Apprentices sometimes work for free. It is up to the employer to train the the worker and it costs the business to invest in training. This is investing in the people that work for a business and deters the business from moving the work to a low pay country. One size does not fit all. Average wage in the U.S.$25 an hour. Welfare pays $24 a day.
The landscape business owner does not have to wait for the government to tell him to give his workers a raise or health benefits.

The president tells us that if you raise the wage people will spend more. Why are they not saving more? Just Think the landscape guy has to charge more so the homeowner pays more and has less to spend. What the president wants is inflation which is a hidden tax. Making money worth less does not increase resources.
What we need is to make more things that foreign countries want so we can get their resources. We need a positive trade not one that prices us out of the market.
