Adjust the minimum wage to two thirds the average wage.

Adjust the minimum wage to two thirds the average wage.

Such a policy would enforce true market forces in the Labour market. If the average wage drops, the minimum wage drops. If the average wage rises, the minimum wage rises. At present the minimum wage is an arbitrarily imposed amount. Without a minimum wage, employers can arbitrarily pay as little as possible.
