    If we have a minimum wage, then we must also have a maximum wage.

    If the government can tell us what we are worth we must have a maximum wage as well.

    No, no, that comes later. First we must lie our arse off and tell everyone that the system will be fair in order to sell it.

    Kapeesh?

    Which kind of unions? Gay?

    Just so long as we keep those polygamists down under our thumb. Polygamy is just plain yucky to even allow them to marry let alone being exempt from anything.

    Yes. And no.

    Yes. There should be a maximum wage.
    No, it's got nothing to do with a government telling us what we are worth (as you're insinuating they do with a minimum wage).

    You need an X-amount of calories a day to live a healthy and productive life.
    Calories cost an x-amount of money a day.
    A minimum wage secures the basic needs; it says nothing about how much you are worth. Neither does the bonus a banker receives, by the way.

    So what is that maximum wage Shav?

    Let me guess, it is more than what you make.

    Life would be so much simpler if the governmnet just picked my job and provided my necessities. You know, kinda like a work for food program., otherwise known as slavery with vacations and sick days.

    Well, besides the definition of slavery excluding vacation and sick days...

    But, no.
    A goverment should make sure the trains run on time, that you don't starve to death and that the agreements between workforce and boss are upheld.

    No, government owes me a place to live, health care, and a living wage. To impose work on me is crossing the line. You and your plantation owners can take a hike.

    Yes it does. It's in your basic human rights. Read the charter.
