Do you really want to help the poor?
Across the country, shopping malls are losing stores and locking their doors. The malls can’t compete with online merchants. These local business face many labor laws that online merchants can avoid. That situation got me thinking.
A high minimum wage works against low-skilled workers. A high minimum wage also works against under-capitalized employers. Does Amazon lobby for a higher minimum wage to eliminate their competition?
That is something to think about if you want to help the poor.
