The Minimum Wage Must Have Minimum Hours

The $15/hour minimum wage is a shiny object.

  • 9.15% of the US population makes more than $100k/year
  • 6.56% makes between $75k & $100k
  • 84.29% of the population makes less than $75k, BUT
  • 49.56% of the population makes less than $30k/year.

We must leverage the economic power of the firm — where it makes sense.

The simple math behind regular work

  1. Full time employment (40 hours/week)
  2. Longevity of employment

When dealing with humans, there’s always an X factor.
