Next you will suggest the government will determine what our pay will be and will handle that silly paycheck nonsense for us so neither we nor our employer will need to bother with it. 
Nah - the ultimate goal is that government will just collect from each according to his ability, and apportion to each according to his needs.

All we need is for the right people to be in charge . . .

And everyone with their own business, including side businesses, gets to log their hours with the IRS and gets a tax rebate to bring their take home earnings/profits up to 15 an hour, plus time and a half for anything over 40 hours a week.

Prosperity and living wages for all!

Others have said it better than I can:

One of the most naive notions is that politicians are trying to solve the country's problems, just because they say so-- or say so loudly or inspiringly. Politicians' top priority is to solve their own problem, which is how to get elected and then re-elected. --Thomas Sowell

Results among progressives are less important than symbolism, intent and high-minded nuance. ŚTom Shattuck, Boston Herald

And, paraphrasing someone I can't remember: If socialists understood economics, they wouldn't be socialists.

They tried, just recently, to do the minimum wage super-lunacy in Saint Louis. Couldn't get enough votes on the board of alderman. I'm guessing it's probably the most reasonable decision that board has made in quite some time.

Well gee, here's a shocker:

Seattle's solution to the failed $15/hr wage is to create a new tax on high wage earners.

If it does pass muster, expect to see a rapid exodus of people and jobs.

Just ask France how it worked ...

If your plan doesn't work, obviously the solution is to find people that will say it's working.

Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on,
for the motherland.
