Why not set it at $20.00/ $50.00/ or even $200.00 an hour?
Wouldn't this improve the lot of the poor and lower working class?
To what degree should the employer be able to determine the value of labor?

No, it would help nothing and make things worse. Jobs would be cut because employers would be unable to pay their employees that much and still remain in business. As someone stated already, min. wage was never designed to be a living wage for a family. It was meant for single people. The problem is that too many people are finding ways to get around the system and receive PA. They don't see the need to better themselves so they can get better paying jobs. Why should they? The gov't will take care of them.
