Raising the minimum wage

Maximum wage

Ethan Dietrich-Reed, laid off from the Capitol Hill Qdoba when it closed, claps in a brief downpour outside Panera Bread during a demonstration and walkout of fast food and coffee shop employees on Capitol Hill August 29, 2013. The rally was part of a nationwide protest of low-wage laborers demanding a $15 per hour minimum wage. [Lindsey Wasson, The Seattle Times.]

It’s nice to see all the conversation lately about the minimum wage.

I hope it gets raised as much as possible. I wonder, though, if it might be more productive to pass some laws about maximum wage. Or, better yet, on the ratio between minimum and maximum wages.
