Canadian politician says a family can eat on $75 a week

Again, what exactly made the country materially worse when minimum wages have been increased in the past? What happened in 1950 when it was increased from $0.40 to $0.75? Or in 1991 when it was increased from $4.75 to $5.15? Do you have numbers on the statistics that made it worse? What happened to the cost of living during the years shortly after minimum wages increased? They must have had lasting effects since minimum wage increases are bad, right? You made a statement saying that minimum wages in the past materially made life worse. Please give me numbers and sources backing up those exact claims not changing the topic and talking about regulation and productivity.
