Propose a higher minimum wage since if the minimum wage is kept pace with inflation productivity increases, likewise consumer spending increases as Economists have long recognized that boosting purchasing power by putting money in people’s pockets for consumer spending has positive ripple effects on the entire economy.

Minimum wage will further reduce government assistance as more people will be able to self sustain and this will have a ripple effect of killing the handout economy.
