If it should be $21, then why don't we make it $50 an hour. Bet that won't be reflected in the price of things or the number of people working either. If fact, with all the extra money in the economy, it might even kick start it and a boom would be the result. Wait -- if $50 an hour would be good, wouldn't $100 an hour be twice as good? Oh heck, let's go for broke and make it $5,000 an hour and then no one will have to work more than an hour a week, right?
