Minimum wage freeze to create new jobs

This is a government idea I heard mentioned on BBC Radio 4 this morning.

Obviously the less you pay people the more people you can employ, but 'employment' is not a basic human need - it is just a means to fulfil those needs via wages (= money). Instead of only doing work that is socially constructive (ie directly meets human needs), people must do as they are told - any work is better than no work. It's patently untrue.
