Cityjoe, okay, how about this for an idea. Instead of implementing a minimum wage, let government apply a wage benefit to the employee's paycheque. Therefore, if the government wants a minimum wage of $10 an hour, it can tack the additional $2 an hour onto their wage level. The employer has the benefit of hiring workers at a competitive cost structure and the worker gets to increase his skills, rather than just collect a welfare cheque.

Think of it as a modified form of workfare.
