    RAISE THE FEDERAL MINIMUM WAGE TO BE 65%; OF EACH OF THE 3,000 COUNTY'S, PER CAPITA GDP'S:

    United States per capita GDP varies,
    from $31,881 in Mississippi, to $65,545 in Massachusetts: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_and_territories_by_GDP_per_capita

    Miss. at $31,881 * 65% = $20,722.65/2080hours = $9.96/hr under this parameter. Mass. at $65,545 * 65% = $42,604.25/2080hours = $20.48/hr under this parameter.

    Within the 3,000 Counties, the per capita GDP disparity, may be even greater, than
    between the States.

    Underemployment masks true unemployment.

    Take 1-2 years to raise, so as not to shock.


    $15/hr would be too high in Mississippi, and too low in Massachusetts.
    $15/hr * 2080hours = $31,200, which would be 97.86% of per capita GDP in Mississippi, and 47.60% of per capita GDP in Massachusetts.

    Trump and Hilary discussed raising the minimum wage in debate in 2016, Trump said
    65% of per capita GDP, Hilary said $12 per hour. Trump and Biden just discussed
    it in debate Oct 22. Biden says $15, Trump says $15 would be ruinous in some Counties.


    Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Tennessee, have no minimum
    wage, but the Federal of $7.25/hr = $15,080/yr

    $15,080 = 47.3% per capita GDP in Mississippi, 23% per capita GDP in Massachusetts.


    A low minimum wage is apparently correlated with a higher State prison population:

    The punishment for crime in each of the 50 U.S. States, is generally slavery. --- Synchronet 3.18a-Linux NewsLink 1.113
