The Poverty Line
How Minimum Wage Violates Catholic Social Teaching
Minimum wage most clearly violates workers rights because minimum wage deals with the workers. Workers deserve a fair wage, which they are clearly being denied if they fall below the poverty line.
This also goes against the preferential option of the poor. Paying workers a fair wage gives them a chance to escape devastating poverty. We are responsible to help the poor by paying them fairly.
