minimum wage import duties
No idea if this would be feasible or desirable, but it occurred to me that it would be theoretically possible to charge an import duty on any item which is based on the minimum wage in the country of origin. It's a somewhat blunt instrument but it might serve to level the playing field somewhat between low wage countries and our own. Depending on political preference the receipts could be distributed as consumption tax cuts, support for local businesses or to charities to improve labour conditions in the countries of origin
