Minimum Wage Fuel Thought Experiment (Variable Wage?)
Crazy Idea (or not?)
What if the US Minimum Wage was based on the price of a gallon of Gas?
Instead of requiring "$7.25 per hour", rate of "Twice the cost of a gallon of gas" could be required.
The price of fuel is already a major factor upon the US economy.
Could such a change cushion the blow for the common worker?
How would it affect Employers (Large & Small)?
Would it alter the behavior of investors?
What changes would occur if workers started negotiating using such variables?
