    Government has the right to set a minimum wage for its employees; government workers, politicians, public school teachers, etc. After all, it is the government which acts as the employer and the government is put into that position by voters.

    Government does not have the jurisdiction to set wages in the private sector which is run solely in the free market where wages are determined by supply and demand. It is the individual’s challenge to strive for higher wages by switching jobs or making her or himself a more valuable worker via education and dedication to the employer.
