In a perfect world raising minimum wage would put more in unskilled labors pocket but in reality every time a wage hike happens, the large apartment complexes raise their rents 40.00 dollars a month. Not to mention the price hikes from all stores and restaurants to cover the extra costs per hour for wages.

Then people will shop at new stores that don't raise their prices. McDonalds had a net income of over 5 billion dollars in 2017. It can afford to pay its employees a living wage and still have a healthy profit without raising prices at all.

Government is not the solution,
but rather the cause of our problems.
Why not set the minimum wage at $1000 per hour and rents at $10 per month? Free money!
Everyone knows that the USSR was such a huge success. What could go wrong?
