Years ago I had exactly this same conversation with an idiot at a union meeting (before I swore off unions forever). The moron belonged to the National Labor Party, a communist labor movement that was pushing for a Constitutional Amendment that would require a federal minimum wage of $10.00 and hour. After providing the crowd, and this moron, with a session of Economics 101, and explaining that IF the federal minimum wage was increased to $10.00 and hour, and the union(s) did not receive the same % of increase in wages, our buying power would be reduced by that exact percentage. I certainly didn't make any points with the union, but you can't talk sense, economically or otherwise, with idiots.
