The right minimum wage

George Will sums up the debate wonderfully when he proposes, as I have, that the correct minimum wage should be zero.

The minimum wage should be the same everywhere: $0. Labor is a commodity; governments make messes when they decree commodities' prices. Washington, which has its hands full delivering the mail and defending the shores, should let the market do well what Washington does poorly. But that is a good idea whose time will never come again.
