The minimum wage is not keeping Walmart & McDonalds from paying people 15 cents an hour. What would happen if they did pay people 15 cents an hour? They would have no labor pool to pull from skilled or unskilled. Nobody would work for them. If I could make more money collecting cans and washing cars why would I go work for Walmart or McDonalds? I could set my hours and its all cash. I wouldn't pay any tax. Win/win.
