    ...on asking me about minimum wage?

    Public sector workers should get the same pay, benefits, and protections as private workers. And the private sector should set the market in this regard. Public workers can always jump to a private job if they don't think they are being paid enough.

    The government has a responsibility to use precious tax dollars taken from private individuals as reasonably frugally as possible. The government isn't there to make jobs for people, it's there to serve its constituency (most of whom these days are not rich by a long shot) by providing services at a reasonable cost.
