Raising the Minimum Wage” is only popular because people don’t understand that doing so will also raise unemployment. That is simple supply and demand: you will buy less labour if it costs more. If you want more people on benefits instead of working, then support raising the Minimum Wage. All Left-wing policies have unintended consequences: raising the tax on wealthy people will make them spend more money on Accountants and Lawyers to avoid paying the extra tax, or they will move to a country with a lower tax rate. 33% is high enough: Big Government needs to live within its means, drive out waste and inefficiencies, and sack as many paper-pushers as possible. Pushing up taxes on the rich is stupid and lazy.
