The most effective way for Mr. Lawrence Wittner and Paul Krugman to see that employees in some industries get higher than the “inadequate minimum wage” is for them to start a business of their own, out of their own personal capital (not grants, not bureaucratic funds), hire away some of those getting “inadequate” compensation, and pay them more out of their own pocket.

Only then do they earn the right to pontificate their superior attitude of socioeconomic justice.
