I grew up during the cold war with the Soviet Union. As a child we had an former Soviet citizen who excaped that country come and speak to our class and explain how in the USSR, garbage men and doctors all made the same salary, and the government told you what your job is going to be. Government intervention such as minimum wage laws bring our country one step closer to that goal of "fairness for all" (socialism).

If you are counting on government laws to provide fairness, and not the natural laws of supply and demand, then you will be disappointed time and time again and will never earn a chance to become truely independent. I think that government is like crack, every addictive. Once you are high on government, it is hard to get off it.
