See the movie on demand: "God Bless America". It has an excellent message about the American sport of demeaning people. It's funny and full of truth.

Bert Johnson and the others in favor of just boosting the minimum wage are not heavy thinkers. They do not understand the implications. For them, money is just printed paper with no limits. With this mind set, why not grant people more so they have more? Economics does not work that way. When you print more money, everything scales to the new supply level.
