"You know what there is demand for? cheap labour that can make you quick cash."

Kinda took apart your own point there...where exactly do you think the demand for that is going to go if suddenly wages double? That's not going to help entry-level workers. That's going to prompt companies to make less employees do more work. They're going to start picking people off and sending them packing. You're not looking at the big picture here, that money has to come from somewhere and corporations are not just going to pay these unskilled workers $15/hour (which, excuse me, is absolutely the pay-bracket of a skilled worker, even managers don't make that much) out of the kindness of their hearts and act like nothing happened. There's a demand because when people start demanding money like this, McDonald's or Burger King or wherever can just ship them off and find people who are willing to do the work for less, and believe me, there's tons.

Demand, huh? Well, you know what else there's demand for? Architects. And surgeons. And doctors. And engineers. All things that you need an education to be, years and years of it, in fact. And they get paid big money because they're skilled workers. You want to talk about society collapsing? Let's talk about how it goes from here: you would either have to also raise wages for skilled workers, since they are performing more complex and sometimes more dangerous tasks, or else no one would have any incentive to get an education (4-8 years, thousands of dollars, hundreds of hours of work) when they could just make almost the same amount just by walking into Burger King and asking for a job. We've then got a large influx of people going from constructing buildings, desinging and putting together electronics and machinery, working on cures for diseases, etc., etc., so they can ask if you'd like fries with that, and have exactly the same standard of living.

tl;dr The economy does not work that way.

Burger flippers should not be paid the same as doctors, but minimum wage should cover what you can live on healthily at a minimum. So yes everyones wages needs to be raised to a degree in the US and Canada.

There is not a huge demand for architects, In cities companies have not deemed it necessary to have more surgeons or doctors and there is not a massive demand for engineers. You know what there is demand for? cheap labour that can make you quick cash. There is a demand for burger flippers, factory workers and cashiers because its cheap, requires minimal training and allows you get your products to the customers.

Economy is not some simple "Better people get more money" system, its complex, works on multiple levels and is further complicated by international systems.

Let me make it clear, I don't want to raise the wage for unskilled workers to be on par with skilled workers, I want minimum wage to be survivable which in NA it really isn't. I know the point is to get people to want more so they try harder to be better, but its not going to work if people are just sad, depressed and can't afford cereal for breakfast.
