What about increasing the minimum wage ?  Surely a populists policy would there be one ever !
I'd be all in favour of indexing minimum wage to cost of living or something.  The problem is, that we need to get back to policies that make businesses compete for labour.  Biden wants big increases in immigration, to increase the pool of labour.  All that does is depress wages, for everyone.  Labour needs to be turned from a huge supply, to more of a demand.  You don't do that by flooding the market with low skilled labour.  It's counter productive.
