"In the US there are 3.6 million workers with wages at or below the federal minimum wage"

There's 140 million employed Americans. Only 2.5% make that little.

"A startup has to pay it's founders minimum wage even when they are willing to work for free."

How does that work. You can't pay someone less than minimum wage, but aren't you still allowed to volunteer?

That still doesn't mean that removing the law wouldn't change anything.
There are a lot of laws that don't effect everyone.

If I would advocate to double the tax rate of the top 1% you wouldn't argue that it doesn't matter because that aren't many people.

I think the linked YCombinator lesson about startup legal issues is quite interesting. I recommend it if you want to know more.
