Re: “Increases in minimum wage likely do more harm than good” (TNT, 2-20).
The writer thinks that the Earned Income Tax Credit is a better way of making sure that people who work can be self-supporting than is increasing the minimum wage. There are two things wrong with this approach.
In the first place, this would be a way to make the government subsidize stingy employers. In the second place, childless people do not qualify for the EIC. He should have done his homework before he wrote the article.
