Flipping burgers is a hard hot nasty job and you get treat like # all day and paid low wages.


And it's still not worth a living wage. Because not all labor has the same value.


What are you on repeat?

I'm taking a hard line stance against slavery. There are other variables involved in determining the value of someone's work.

Like the fact that they are a human being and deserve to live a descent life.

Soulless spiritually dry.

Where's a quote where I said all labor is equal value?


"not everything is skill based"

Sure it is.

Point at one post where I said equal and quote it.

Once again more bs from the 1980's crowd.


70s actually, but thanks


Oh so even closer to times of economic growth and prosperity.

So am I. Use the education I paid you to get. If you don't, you blew it. Decisions have repercussions.

No it's not your skillset isn't and shouldn't be the only determining factor in your value.

Remove all of these jobs and shut down all of these companies including all of the retail stores with all the jobs you think have no value.

Then after you shut down every store including grocery stores and all he other essential jobs that our society requires to function and come and tell me how worthless those jobs were.

Sorry but your wrong and totally clueless.

UK resident aswell. Also lived in Finland not long after it became part of the EU and had to apply for a residents permit.

Oh yeah, I was a cleaner there until I learnt the language, went to school, got a degree and started to work with computers for the local authority.

You need to stop the "you lived when it was all nice and easy" argument. It's as easy as you make it. A year at school can increase you finding a better job with better pay. Simple fact.

Pfft. If you are useless, you are useless.

You had a million choices. And you chose that. Now, it's time to pay for your decisions in life.

I work in construction installing hardwood floors I don't need an education my job requires live on the job experience.

I still think people who work hard and provide a device that I regularly enjoy deserve to live at least on a basic level.

It's not that they have NO value, just not very much.

That's still a skilled job. Unlike burger flipping or cashier work.

They have enough value that they make enough money to live

Let me say that again

To live

Yes live, not die but actually continue living.

Without needing my tax dollars and without being in total poverty.

You disgust me.

QED: no. A really good carpenter can get the wage he demands. A floor installer can work really hard but have no marketable skill. Because I can train anyone to screed concrete, or do basic welding, or sweep, or flip burgers.

The burger flipping and cashier jobs are not skilled the value is in the service they provide.

Stop it with the bull# already.

Which you are going to discover can be done by a 32 bit computer, for nothing.

Again you have no idea what your talking about.

I'd love to see you instal a floor properly without knowing all the variables and have it come out level and square.
