Crazy Wage Mike Durant once said, “Making it more expensive to create new jobs is a perfect way to guarantee fewer of them.” The recent, “Raise the Wage” campaigns have sparked an interest in many low-wage workers, however those who support this initiative are unaware of the economic problems that will arise if this is successful. Several cities have already raised their minimum wages and some, like Seattle, are raising it as high as $15 per hour. Currently, supporters of this campaign argue that this raise should be implemented federally. However, doing so will have broad and negative financial implications.

The current decline in mediating institutions is unsustainable because it creates a dangerous positive feedback loop of greater federal government power and individualism and weakens the very institutions that are necessary for creating a free society. Without middle institutions, people are left “without even local, interpersonal instructions to fall back on, since these have now been enervated for a century” (100). People now instead turn to government solutions instead of intuitions such as family, work, faith, and community. Increasingly, society can be viewed as “consisting only of individuals and a state” (100). This is especially difficult for low-income Americans as they are “more isolated- economically, culturally, and socially- than they used to be in America” (126).
