Minimum Wage

People who support the minimum wage generally think that people will not be able get by if there was no minimum wage. There is a two pronged attack you can make. First, explain how the minimum wage laws can put the same people they want to help by putting them completely out of work. If they like that then explain the many ways life would be easier for those people if government was smaller. (No Payroll Taxes, lower prices, etc...). I have had less luck convincing people with the second prong that is why I recommend the unemployment argument first.
This answer can potentially be persuasive, but it usually makes you look like a sarcastic jerk so use it carefully.
