Re: Short response to Mr. Sastri

The point is that you are making individual business owners (often small &
marginal businesses) pay someone more than the employee "earns". This has
the effect of pushing marginal businesses over the edge, which is not a
policy. IMO the best way of achieving your goal is the Earned Income Tax
Credit, where people making under a certain limit pay a "negative" income
tax (i.e. get money back). This has the effect of spreading the cost of
"social" goal over the whole of society (where it properly belongs).
