I my country the minimum wage is negotiated between the Tradeunions and the Employer-organizations . Sounds like freedom of contract and all that, right ?
And what happens ? We STILL have to listen to the local libertarian-fools telling eveybody how evil it is to even have a minimum-wage .
My country is Denmark, look how bad it has been for us to have a minimum-wage ..
Since we got it, the average life-expectancy has increased from 53 to 73 years ..
