The formula introduced here, the "social inclusion" wage, is a concept I just freaking hate!

Basically, instead of going to what a person actually needs to survive and prosper, they *slightly* inflate the numeric value, at the price of making all the people wanting a decent wage into whining "wanna-be's" of the kind Glen Beck loves to thrash.

There is a need to "unmask" somewhat the claims of number of people given a "decent wage" in the form of an hourly minimum- it is pointed out by any reasonably close analysis
