    Unless you're saying that the minimum allowable wage should be a required amount of money for every single person to have, and thus they must be paid min wage even if they aren't working?
    What part of, a form of minimum wage that simply compensates unemployed labor for being unemployed in any at-will employment State do you find difficult to understand?

    I just explained what my understanding of your phrase is.

    You tell me what I don't understand, if you can.

    It just seems like you prefer diversion to actually discovering sublime Truth (value) through argumentation.

    Here is a simplification. A form of minimum wage that simply compensates unemployed labor for being unemployed on an at-will basis. I hope this is easier.

    Does the news include opinion pieces?

    What on earth are you talking about? If anyone here is diverting, it's you with your constant repetitious statements. Rather than address responses, you divert back to your original statement.

    And that's not a simplification, it's the same statement.

    I presented you with my take on that line. Is it accurate?

    I believe you really do prefer diversion to discovering sublime Truth (value) since you don't have a valid argument to continue this discussion.

    That seems disingenuous since we are dealing with politics; not just hard facts; potentially due to a simple poverty of the moral of "goodwill toward men".

    I don't even know what your position is yet, after how many posts?

    I can't argue for or against something if I don't know what it is/means.
