Minimum wage discussion

The minimum wage

Part that seems to be missed in these debates isn't what happens to the jobs directly affected by the rise, but what happens to those that aren't?

If they all also rose, then the change has achieved nothing except pure inflation.  If they don't rise then what happens to the motivation of those that had through education, longer service, and better performance produced a margin above the base...?
