    Will the employees be able to afford the product they make ?

      Those are two different things.  A living wage doesn't mean the ability to buy what your factory makes--what if it makes yachts?  And making TVs in our country is a structural agenda, not a consumer agenda of any given worker such that s/he needs to be able to buy them.  If Element makes TVs in Detroit and the workers can only afford Vizios, I'm OK with that.

      But nobody's buying flowers from the flower lady.
