The Becker-Posner blog has a nice discussion about the idea of raising the minimum wage and, below that, a friendly but insightful view of Milton Friedman. Becker and Posner simulblog if you will, sometimes in the manner of a debate.

Is he high? Any ass that says don't raise the minimum wage, well I have a wager for them.

If they can clean toilets for one year at 5.15 per hour and STILL say that the minimum wage not be raised, well, then I would offer a little respect of his opinion on the subject. I seriously doubt he would say that though, and if he could make it ONE day of hard work at 5.15 an hour, I would be surprised.
