: So, then the opposite might be true ? if we reduced wages to 50 cents an hour would we have full employment ?

Remove the 'we' as in 'we in charge' and note that the rates of pay would have nothing to do with govt. The wages will be priced according to supply and demand for it.

: If an employer will not pay staff the minimum wage, we should advertise the fact so people could boycott their products

Thats fine, its (supposedly) a free country, boycotts are a good non-coercive way of making a point and effecting change without having to go running to 'big brother'.
