I'm starting to think minimum wage is the wrong way to go. Provide UBI to the people and abolish the minimum wage and wages will be determined by a market that is truly free.

I think Nixon proposed that.  Got scotched by some troubles or other he had.

A national minimum wage is a bad idea.  If one is concerned about allowing the lowest earners the maximum income, one cannot have, in a given market, a minimum wage that is either so high that employers will simply choose not to expand jobs, nor so low that people with jobs simply cannot afford to live.  $15/hr works for the big cities but not the smaller markets where cost of living is lower (I was just listening to an economist on NPR explaining why $15/hr works for DC but not Dayton).  It could work as a percentage of average household income in a given area, but I don't know how you would define the areas.

Highwaymen.  Hard boiled old Texas Rangers Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson get pulled out of retirement to hunt down Bonnie and Clyde.  Not a great deal happens in this movie except Kevin and Woody being crotchedy and hard boiled.

Bernie wants $15 minwage and end to right to work laws.
I'm a fan of both policies.  Right to Work is horrible and by the time a $15 minimum wage was passed and enacted, inflation will, if anything, probably be right in line for that level or once again be past it.
