How about if instead of setting it at $100k, we instead link it to the 95th percentile of wages, currently, this works out to $95k, but it will fluctuate with inflation, whereas $100k will not.
Absolutely! I was thinking 90th percentile ($82k). But the important thing is that it's a high wage. Tying it to a percentile makes the law withstand the test of time. I would also make the law state that it must be 95th percentile of wages for the region (I haven't figured out how to specify region in detail yet). That way the Silicon Valley area would require even higher wages than the rest of the country.
I would also remove all quotas and limits based on education or area of focus. If you can find a job making more than 90% of US residents (not just citizens, the law should be recursive), come on over!
