Choice: government bureaucracy to subsidize low-wage employers and supplement minimum-wage salaries or firms paying a wage which does not require such subsidies in order to survive. Saying these firms make plenty in profit, it's a no brainer. It's not up to the taxpayer to pay McDonald's workers what McDonald refuses to pay.
So the liberal solution to "make the company pay" actually is advising that the poor be taxed to help the poor.
(And this ignores the erroneous claim that we "must" have welfare just because a company or industry pays its workers low wages. Our government is not required to subsidize every moneyless low wage person, they choose to though, for their own reasons.)
