This is the lamest reason possible for paying burger flippers $30/hr

Dave, do you ever stop and thing what the result would be if everyone got paid a very high wage for any job they do... no matter what the skill level, education level, or market demand for that work is?

  • You would end up with a chart you will be proud of, but no one will be able to afford to eat at McDonalds.

  • Or perhaps, we would all be millionaires, but it would take $40,000 to buy a loaf of bread.

  • Or perhaps, we would mow our own lawns, because no one could afford to hire someone to do it. So we end up with fewer jobs, and more people depending on government welfare.

One thing for certain, if we took your advice and went to a full blown socialist system we won't all be lounging around smoking fat cigars and enjoying the good life.

Russia gave it a good try... for 75 years or so... and it failed miserably.
