You are overstating what I said. Unless you are paying wages your opinion is really meaningless. The only opinions that are important is the employee and the employer in wage matters. All other opinions are meaningless.
Almost all wages set in the United States are market rates. When you accept a job that is what you are worth. AS you gain experience and improve your productivity you might be worth more. Then your employer might give you a raise. If you believe that you are worth more you might look to another job. But just because you believe you are worth more does not mean you are worth more. THe market must make that judgement.
So, I pay my employees a certain wage. That is what they are worth. If they are worth more they might attract another offer and go work for another company. I pay 100% of my employees above the minimum wage and above any proposed minimum wage(how anyone can straight face seek to raise the miniumum wage more than 40% while teenage unemployment levels are over 16% is absolute crazy economic policy). So, your opinions about what I pay or should pay my employees are completely meanignless. And, the same goes for every employer out there, including minor league baseball.
Again, if the wages were too low for minor league baseball players they would not have enough players. THen they would have to increase the wage rate to bring the numebr of employees to the required level. The fact is, minor league baseball does not have a labor shortage, and if anything, a labor surplus (they need to release players). Thus claims that they are paid too little are false.
