Yes, that includes all the wars you learned about in your history class but also many more you did not.
As for the minimum wage, it has not kept pace with inflation for, oh, literally 50 years now. If your business can't succeed without paying people a living wage, your business deserves to fail because your business is based on exploitation. Costco, for example, can manage to run a successful business and pay people more than double the minimum wage.

OK, let's go with a local gas station chain right here in central Texas, Buccee's. Buccee's minimum starting wage is $14/hr. Last year, they saw a 103% growth percentile and opened up 11 new locations.
The reality is that the wealthy, and those who are wannabes, would prefer to exploit literally everyone else in the cause of "Fuck you, I got mine."
