$5 proposal

Amenatave Yaconisau, Palm Drive, Delainavesi
Monday, October 30, 2017

I believe Professor Biman Prasad's article in this newspaper titled "$5 at the very least"(FT 28/9) is an unacceptable explanation of income disparity (especially wages) in the country.

It seems unfair to many but the solution offered by the Professor is encouraging on paper.

We have to think deeply of the moral justifiability, of income distribution in the country, especially ones that downgrades minimum wage increase as increasing business costs and inflation.

I believe his proposed solutions about consultation with stakeholders is encouraging indeed.
