This is part of what I mean when I say that the biggest political divide in our country is not Republican versus Democrat or conservative versus liberal/progressive, it's libertarian versus authoritarian. I see the call for a higher minimum wage as authoritarian. Someone is in a spot where they don't earn as much money as you might think a "successful" person should earn. The libertarian response would be to encourage them to build a better life and grow. The authoritarian response is to forcefully change the situation so that they don't have to.
