the free market solution is to pay people more to work for you
they're selling labor power, you aren't offering enough to buy it. pay more or go out of business and make way for someone better. isn't that how this is supposed to work?
"the free market can't compete with the government" is not the defense of the free market you think it is, to anyone trying it
