Bill: Economic Freedom & Prosperity Act [EFPA]
Votes: This is an ordinary bill. It requires more yes votes than no votes. This bill will not pass any sooner than the deadline.
Voting deadline: July 3919
I see no issues with articles 1-3, general items that free up economic freedoms.
Article 4 is critical, minimum wages should be MINIMUM wages. A majority who are under minimum wages are citizens that do not have a family yet, and therefore should not get the minimum wage of a full family to support. Minimum wage is for one, average person, to live on his/her own, once citizens make the decision for a family they most likely already have advanced enough in their careers to pay for it. Also companies compete in Aloria, and those which are good will already have provisions for employees with families.
