People aren't saying that they, as people are less meaningful or valuable. Their labor is worth less. Labor is a product like anything else, and it is harmful to mandate minimum prices that are higher than it is worth. What if they decided that to help the grain industry, the minimum any store could charge for bread was $5/loaf? Would everyone just pony up? No, they would buy other kinds of bread, or make their own.
