I agree. I think it's way too high now, but I know that's radical thinking. As someone who loves Economics, I learned long ago how foolish a wage floor would be and how it would disrupt the lower work force. People will work for what they will work for. I think we should watch for exploitation of cheap immigrant labor, but if someone is willing to work for 4 an hour, but can't get hired because the wage floor is 6 (this happens more often than you might think) is a travesty. And to the American worker who thinks he'll lose his job. If someone comes along and works cheaper than you and emulates your effectiveness, maybe you shouldn't be doing what it is you are doing (fry cook...etc).

Erat still rocks!
