A Proposal to Repeal the Current Federal Minimum Wage, Invalidate Existing State Minimum Wages, and Preclude Future Wage Floor Legislation in Perpetuity

[This is a third assignment from a previous semester. As with the second essay reproduced here on Ignore This, this assignment is but lightly edited, and it maintains its in-text citations and bibliography. In this case, the purpose for keeping these components is to maintain the overall character of the assignment (a practical proposal addressed to Senator Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) that, who knows, maybe I'll actually submit to the man sometime in the future).]
