I'm sure that almost all of the positions will be filled by illegals.

Wow. People here even complain over actual job creation? If you don't want to work there, then don't. And if you don't want to buy their food, don't do that either. But complaining because companies are adding jobs in America? WTF?

I believe the complaints are being raised due to the fact that taco bell offers the same quality food as they do jobs. Something needs to happen to change this broken system of large corporations and crap wages.

If that's true, then those same complainers should support the movement to increase the federal minimum wage (like FightFor15). Then Taco Bell's wages won't be an issue.

Although you're giving them too much credit. For example, the post right above my 1st post is complaining that the new jobs will "probably be filled with illegals".

Clearly, I don't speak for everyone
. I'm not a believer in the federal minimum wage hike (from what I've read of it). Forcing a company to pay more in labor will only make goods and service costs rise across the board. I more tend to think that some type of cap needs to be had on ceo's as a percentage of revenue. Also possibly an incentive to pay workers more.

Maybe a bit cynical but any forced hike in price to a corporation will ultimately fall on the middle classes back.

I want you to think about that for a second in context. People complain because Taco Bell wants to add 100,000 new jobs, because the jobs probably have low wages. But they also oppose the drive to make those new jobs higher paying. Like I asked earlier, WTF?

I'm not opposed to those jobs being higher pay. I'm opposed to a mandate from the federal government saying that they have to be.

I've got a problem alright and it's not with capitalism. It has much to do with exploitation working to the brink of slavery.

Seeing as capitalism is literally based on the exploitation of labor & I'm a socialist, yeah I do.

But to stick to the topic, I'm not the one in this thread complaining about Taco Bell wanting to add 100,000 new jobs. I'm pointing out the ridiculous complaints here against actual job creation in America. And then I pointed out that the same ones who complain that Taco Bell's new jobs are probably "low paying" are the same ones who oppose the efforts to increase those wages in the first place.

So what exactly is your point?

I'm a capitalist, businessman, entrepreneur and I don't like being told how to run my business.

I would be a hypocrite if I wanted to put controls on corporations. I pay the bills and take the risks.

I have made fortunes and gone broke as well....It's my decision. I'm not asking for special treatment and I don't exploit my employees.


That's my point!

If what your saying is true, and I have zero reason to believe you are lying, then you are the exception and not the rule. That is the issue.

This may work, that means Jenny Craig will have to employ more to shred all the new fat asses

Not only do I not exploit my employees...I have sold some of my start ups to my employees for pennies on the dollar and they have repaid me with their profits down the line....no contracts, no attorneys, just a handshake.

Yes I am the exception. I have been blessed with a fine education, good friends and a talent for seeing trends in the marketplace.

Now my LLCs are in the capable hands of my mgrs while I live the dream.

And your point has absolutely nothing to do with Taco Bell wanting to add 100,000 jobs or people's complaints here that Taco Bell pays its employees too little.

ETA: And for the record, "the exploitation of labor" is literally one of the tenets of capitalism. Literally. It's not some cute phrase I made up for this thread; it's part of the economic definition of capitalism. It goes along with the basic fact that you can't make a profit in labor-based capitalism without paying the labor less than it produces. Hence, the exploitation of labor. Automation can do away with this tenet though, but that's another conversation.
