  5. Minimum wages should be set so that a single adult head of household with two children can survive in reasonable comfort and safety, and provide enough for their children to be reasonably healthy and clothed in a manner that is acceptable to their society.
    Less than that, and the wage is not reasonable.

    We spend a great deal of time juding wages that must be set by law to prevent abuse and slavery. And we take not a glance at wages that are thousands of times that amount, which can never be used reasonably and are entirely excessive.

    This is something very wrong with our system of economics. Not that we must force anyone to do anything, but that our leaders, however they got there, must be reigned in by law to behave like true members of their community, like human beings. The fact that a law must be created should be seen as a very poor reflection on the leaders of business. However much money they have earned, they have failed as human beings the moment they offer a wage that is not reasonable to live on in the circumstances defined above.
