As always, when there's disparity and inequity between groups A and B, the question is: do we punish the favored group in the name of restorative, retributive justice, or do we raise the relatively oppressed group to the same level of privilege?

Workers of the world face the same challenge: is it a race to the bottom? "Now you know what it's like to work for $1 an hour and be treated like dirt!" Is that what we want all workers to know first hand?

Does the net average living standard go up or down, as a result of our preferred remedy?

My bias is to encourage the less privileged to keep fighting for the privileges others already enjoy. I'll even fight alongside. Keep speaking truth to power. Assert your privilege.
