Making it illegal for low-skilled workers to compete on price

From a commenter at Cafe Hayek:

Note also that people who are against large retailers because mom and pop shops can’t compete with them on price are all for a minimum wage that ensures mom and pop businesses will never be able to compete on price.

Though, I thought she was going to say, Note also that people who are against large retailers because mom and pop shops can’t compete with them on price are all for a minimum wage that ensures low skilled workers won’t be able to compete with higher skilled workers on price, the one area where they may be able to gain an advantage.
