With the cost of living the way it is, minimum wage is a none too funny joke.

Comment by Chris on December 5, 2018 at 2:13pm

If unable to view the seminar "Destroying the Myths of Market Fundamentalism" it on the Real News Network I provided here is a link on Youtube. I know some links don't work in other countries.

The first speaker is here.

Lori's is here.

Comment by Chris on December 5, 2018 at 2:05pm

Stephen,

There is a series, which was a one day semininar with numerous speakers entitled "Destroying the Myths of Market Fundamentalism" I encourage everyone to watch it an learn about economic theory outside of the prevailing view from the 'Chicago Boys' which was made popular and took over the news during the Thatcher/Reagun administrations.

Market Fundamentalism and Trade

Here's a good speaker and interesting topic to listen to about trade by Lori Wallach, Director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch, speaks at the forum, “Destroying the Myths of Market Fundamentalism,” held in Washington DC, on October 19, 2018

Her topic may apply to what's going on with Brexit

If you find her topic interesting you may enjoy listening to the other speakers as well.

I bet Trump wine tastes like piss. It would seem scump likes it that way.

The Labour party in the UK are demanding that the minimum wage be changed into a living wage where a person can live a decent life. This Tory government and its predecessors resisted even introducing such a small minimum wage

Minimum Wages for Tipped Employees federally  in 'The Land of Oppertunity - The U.S. is $2.13/hour.
Apparently according to the FLSA the definition of Tipped Employee by Minimum Tips received (monthy unless otherwise specified) +=more than $30.
Therefore I read this that if a taxi cab driver, maid, bartender, waitress, bell hop, door man, bathroom attendent, cook (and etcetera) for example in the blue states makes more than $30/month in tips the employer is only required federally to pay $2.13/hour. 
Therein lies one of the many problems with tips and how owners/employees distribute tips through their employees.
This is a complicated subject.  It appears to me that service isn't related to the tips provided.
There are a lot of links about this subject.
Here's one:

The problem that’s tearing restaurants apart

All across the country, restaurants are struggling to fill their kitchens. It's happening on the East Coast, in New York City, and in the Midwest, in Chicago; it's happening out West, too, in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle. Good cooks, who were once in excess supply, are suddenly a lot tougher to find.

The truth is that despite what you might see on the Food Network or other cooking shows, being a cook is grueling work that's not for the faint of heart. The slowdown in immigration over the past five years has also made it harder for kitchens to find staff since the industry is deeply reliant on immigrant labor.

But there's another problem that's been bubbling up for decades: Many of the people who work the kitchen have been getting short-changed -- especially when compared to the wait staff serving customers....

The Racist History of Tipping 

Tipping is a norm in the U.S. But it hasn’t always been this way. Tipping was considered “un-American” and “undemocratic” when rich Americans began to adopt the practice in the mid-1800s. By the end of the Civil War, tipping had spread throughout the country. According to research by Saru Jayaraman and Teófilo Reyes at Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, the reason behind its popularity was inherently racist—and it goes all the way back to slavery.

If you eat at a restaurant in the U.S., you’re expected to tip. It’s the right thing to do.

More about the above here.

With minimum wage and tipping notice how in the bible, former slave states and Jim Crow states tends to influence it as evidence of the hisory of tipping and racism.

I attempted to give a tip to a taxi driver while traveling in Spain - It was refused. The tone I felt is the driver felt it was an insult from an obnoxious American.
