That the minimum wage should be reduced

Reducing the minimum wage is essential if we want to lower unemployment. Right now, global unemployment stands at 8%, and US unemployment stands at 4-5%. A reduction in the minimum wage will actually increase the amount of money that people have, both by decreasing taxes via less money paid into welfare, and via lower prices on products. This also prevents companies from using slaves in humanitarian countries, which will also help the former slaves make money helping their countries develop.

I was a few characters off of the text limit. I did not realize how little 500 characters was when I set it to that.

I meant the slave workers can benefit by US getting payed lower wages.*

Although I do agree that slaves in other countries could possibly benefit by paying lower wages, I am super confused how lower wages mean lower taxes. Id like a little more explanation on this. Also, Id be ready for a LONG debate from the one arguing. Four sentences does not impress me or likely anyone. Get ready to out a lot more effort. I already see the argument that welfare and other countries wages should be payed for by SUPER wealthy companies who's owners WASTE money on non nessecities like sports cars and mansions instead of reinvesting the money into the company therefore not getting bankrupt and into bailouts from OUR taxes!
