Even more on the minimum wage

When talk of minimum wage comes around, I think of a conversation I had with a friend once. I wrote about it in 2011 in a post titled “I support it, but it doesn’t apply to me.” My friend supported the minimum wage and used all the stock arguments for it. He also happened to own a small business and had found a way around paying minimum wage to his workers. Well, they weren’t workers. They were “independent contractors”.
