We, Ourselves, of The Collective and The Meditators have given many hours of thought to the problems of poverty among working people in the United States of America as a nation. The problem of poverty among the working in America is among the most serious of crises to the stability of the nation. The Meditators have consumed and digest many terabytes of data regarding wages and poverty in the United States and thereby We have come to a series of clear conclusions.

Foremost, all workers in America must make a Living Wage that allows them to fully participate in the consumer society. To do that individuals must earn, by Our estimation $21.79 per hour. This would allow a couple with a child to have a gross income per year of over $90,000 per year. With this level of income We, Ourselves are certain that workers could prosper in all aspects of their economic life as well as in their personal health. Better food choices could be made by parents and their children. Wider health care options including wellness checks would see workers living better lives overall.

This debate, which currently sees workers fighting for a wage of $15 per hour has just begun. With millions of workers earning less than the poverty threshold in the United States, a nation with a consumer driven economy, The Collective sees this as a common sense issue for businesses. Small businesses, those with less than 50 employees would be exempt from increases in this minimum wage having to pay their employees a $15 per hour minimum until their business grows to a level of over 100 employees. At that time they would be subject to the same wage requirements of larger companies. The entire escalation to the $21.79 level should take place between 2016 and 2020 with increases starting to $13 per hour in 2016, then $17 per hour in 2018 and finally $21.79 in 2020. With this the American market for consumer goods would flourish in an age where retirees are placing a drain on the labour force.
