Jon Wilkin states in this week's LE that he thinks we should introduce a minimum wage for players.
If I'm honest I don't see the reasoning for this.
As far as I'm concerned, they do have a minimum wage, it is the same as the rest of the country. Now without bringing the salary cap into this, what are people's thoughts around a minimum wage?
My thoughts are that it is up to individuals to negotiate their own wage, just like I do when i go into a job.
JW talks about having to pay players the right amount of money otherwise we will lose them as a game, but surely the clubs will pay what they think they are worth and what they can afford?
I don't see how a minimum wage will help any of the things he talks about.
