27. The way the economy works right now, absolutely

 

the only way that wold work for Americans would imply huge changes in the economy, starting with minimum wages federal set at 30, with an annual CPI increase to those wages done automatically across the nation to the same level. Realize 1968 was the highest point where the minimum wage was able to buy stuff, depending on who who you read... there are several schools, this ranges from 18 to 25 current dollars.
