Want a higher wage naturally? Get rid of the surplus of labor created by all of the illegal aliens the Democrats keep fighting to keep here because they can leverage them for power.
It’s simple supply and demand. Too much of something causes the value to drop. Democrats used to be on the right side of the issue, until they figured out that if you bring in enough poor people it creates more districts filled with people that are more likely to vote Democrat, even if the illegal aliens do not illegally vote because the number of districts created is based on population alone, not the number of legal voters within the boundaries.
