Reining in employer abuse and providing a *temporary* safety net
Night of the Living Living (Part 2 of 2)
Employers need strict monetary punishments for trying to avoid the cost of hiring full-time employees and giving them expected compensation such that it is an actual deterrent and not something mathematically worth the risk.
The people of the United States should be able to challenge Congress in court for its definition of a Living Wage if it does not meet their needs.
Should a person find themselves unemployed for any reason, the government should be able to provide a Living Wage while they seek new employment, but at the same time must get labor in return for those wages. This should not be an unlimited benefit and must be restricted to uses over a timeframe and a lifetime, except in exceptional circumstances.
