It's not just me brother....Check out what Maurice Isserman, a professor of history at Hamilton College and the author of “The Other American: The Life of Michael Harrington.” had to say in an open essay in the NYTimes on the man, and his views...
The so called "war on Poverty" has been a dismal failure in this country, wasting trillions of dollars on a problem that the so called "champions of the poor" democrats have no real motivation to solve because it threatens their voting base to do so.As social theory, it is deeply flawed. Harrington’s culture-of-poverty thesis was at best ambiguous, at worst an impediment to making the case for what he regarded as the real solution. (In later books, he made no use of the term.)

We have already ceded the Governments right to set a minimum wage, so I guess a maximum wage is not out of the question.
I do think these types of price controls are a dangerous slippery slope.
