Doesn't this periodic minimum wage issue point out the problem capitalism presents? Aren't issues similar to this causes for inflation? The people who need to meet the regulatory requirements for pay increases need only to raise the price of their goods and services to recoup their supposed losses. Then, after a few years, doesn't the need for raising the minimum wage as well as other employees requesting wage increases ensue? I wonder how many people are alive today to remember when a loaf of bread was a nickel? Doesn't capitalism distort democracy along with freedom, justice and equality under God for people who are to represent a democracy? Or are we supposed to forget about God and worship capitalism instead?
