AmCon and V-Dare
Sorry, but it’s not that easy.
You can only defy the laws of gravity so long by standing on a tree branch before it breaks and you fall down to the ground and go boom.
Likewise, the laws of economics eventually carry the day.
The relatively low minimum wage we have now can’t prevent there being a black market industry of illegal aliens working at illegal sub minimum wages, because those that benefit from the cheap labor grease the right political palms to keep the heat off. If you raise the minimum wage to, say, $12 an hour, as Unz wants, the only thing that will be raised is the amount of bribery and palm greasing from the cheap labor addicts to certain politicians and quasi-politician/quasi-cops.
Wherever there are rent controls, mainly in expensive high rent cities, what always happens is that there comes to be a massive waiting list, a lottery, or a questionably legal if not outright illegal “front money” payoff roughly equivalent to the delta of the market rent minus the controlled rent prices, to get a rent controlled apartment.
You just can’t hack around the existing paradigm of a mass supply (and growing) of cheap Hispanic and Asian labor with an artificially higher price floor. All you’ll get is more tomfoolery.
The ONLY thing that will work is severely restricting the supply of labor by way of deporting it, legally disallowing it from the labor market, and/or not allowing it to immigrate into the country to begin with. Then you’ll have a supply-demand curve that legitimately shifts upward in favor of higher salaries and wages.
