people have pointed out that given higher taxes the rich will go to places where they can keep more of their money, even if that means moving to a
communist country. well inevitably those countries will catch on as well and then where will the rich go? they don't seem to understand that paying
people a fair living wage is beneficial to all, would bring more americans into a higher standard of living, so that the rest of america is not living
in crappy conditions a la detroit, south side of chicago etc etc.
screw giving the rich higher taxes, how about the uber wealthy and corporations stop focusing on becoming insanely wealthy and hoarding the profits
and wealth and try and build a future where all our fellow americans can prosper?
bring back the jobs at fair wages and i believe it will stop america from becoming one huge ghetto. the article states that if the average americans
salary remained on par with inflation and the economy the average american worker would be making 92,000 a year, that would translate into more tax
revenue for the united states and i'm sure it would get some of those "lazy welfare queens" of their butts and to work!!!
for those of you that say if you dont like your pay work harder and go back to school etc etc. that still doesn't solve the problem of poverty,
without the lower jobs being paid a living wage there will always be poverty.
i do not live in poverty, i actually have it made compared to most. so it's not just about me or woe is me, i am concerned about my fellow americans
decreasing standard of living. what good is it if i am doing so well but people are straving so much they will be willing to kill me for mine? i am
not so well off that i could afford armed guards or live in a gated community.
