$15 minimum wage

http://www.forbes.com/sites/timworstall/2014/09/06/a-15-an-hour-minimum-wage-would-be-a-17500-a-year-tax-on-jobs/

Instead of raising the minimum wage, require all companies regardless of size to provide an extensive benefits package to their employees which not only includes health care but also self betterment such as education. Raising min wage to $15 is not a sustainable option and will not better the lives of workers. Focus on the healthcare and education benefits to be required by all employers. At the end of the day it’s one’s choice for seeking better employment. Let’s provide the tools on that basis and allow people to make choices for better employment instead of trying to overcompensate for a job that will not be any better regardless of wage.
