Probably wouldn't be all that much different, unless we accepted a dramatic downgrade in minimum housing standards.

Or put another way - incomes couldn't be driven down unless housing costs also came down in similar fashion.

Most places from what I have seen pay higher than the Federal minimum.

No.

But, if everyone was on a level playing field in the USA, then there should be no minimum wage. The market should be the decider, not Little George W. Bush or some other dumbass bureaucrat.
But, it ain't that way.
Everything is tilted for the rich.

A seven year old boy in my neighborhood comes around and blows my drive way off for a dollar.
