You can't really apply micro level solutions to macro level problems. To solve macro level problems, you need macro level solutions.
The only two macro solutions that I can come up with is to have more jobs and the production associated with them, and to have a system that ensures a distribution system which is based upon production and merit, more-so-than individual negotiating ability.
Basically, a meritocracy with ample opportunity to prove and utilize individual merit.
So how do we create more jobs, and ensure that compensation for those jobs is appropriate? The only way we can do this is to have more demand, which can only be accomplished by higher take home earnings (either from an increase in min wage or from cutting taxes on the worker/consumer class, or both).
Once we have ample jobs, I suspect that the compensation issue will resolve itself as employers will have to compete harder for workers, assumably with better compensation packages.
