    Aren't the general problems much worse now with no hope of improving as the government is policy-less.

    Gini co-efficient worse
    Housing affordability worse
    Rule of Law worse
    Freedom of the press worse
    Quality of governance worse (Subjective but based on results)
    Education systems worse
    Education level worse (only developed country that is less educated now than 20 years ago)
    Pollution Worse (relative to other cities that have improved much more)
    Pedestrinisation worse
    etc

    The minimum wage has been poorly managed. The rate of increase has been to slow to make much of an impact. If you look at the major capitalist societies a minimum wage to protect the vulnerable in society is a norm.


    Not sure what your point is?
