Faux Outrage

 Background: Apparently migrants are being paid below the minimum wage.

Personally I think a high minimum wage hurts New Zealand. It is a universal conundrum. You do your time, you save up and upskill and then you become ze boss. I would support a very low minimum wage for jobs without qualifications. Forget about youth wages; many youth do as good a job as their elders.
A low minimum wage across the board. The cost of living as measured by a basket of common goods would fall overnight. We and those currently  minimum wage workers could spend save and invest a lot more.
