When workers don't have an alternative to working for somebody else, there needs to be a minimum wage. But when a man or woman can choose to work for himself without paying a premium to "The Boss," then the boss has to pay a premium to recruit the worker away from self-employment.

Such was the case long ago when the Black Death so decimated European populations that kings and gentry went begging for laborers. In fact, nobility attempted to unionize and establish a maximum wage!

There is no need for die-offs to help raise wages, however. All that's needed is to take back the premium labor pays the boss for a place to establish independent work.

The Commons SF offers stipended workshops illuminating the land and social justice dynamic, and this Thursday, February 7, the topic is Wages.

We pay $20 for each workshop you attend in our Social Justice Advocates workshop series. This is a hands-on, applied theory teach-in, not a historical survey.
