It's like, I don't care about the company you created with your blood and sweat. No one does or should. Chances are whatever you produced is much less enjoyable to me than french fries anyway. I do however care that other human beings on this planet are able to live reasonably well doing whatever jobs are available to them. No matter how menial you perceive them to be.
This problem you have with others claiming entitlement is the same problem I have with what you're saying. There is no divine mechanism that rewards hard work, this is merely an idea--and a caustic one at that. It promotes pride, arrogance, and selfishness.
Believing in the power of bootstraps is just as silly to me as believing in the old testament god--pahlease!
How is pushing for fast food companies to pay their employee's a living wage a push for government dependence?
What planet are you living on???
If they were paid a living wage less of your tax money would be wasted subsidising fast food companies labour costs. You've got to be very stupid if you dont understand that.
NO! I would rather multi-national companies who are making billions annually pay their workers a living wage!
You offer no VIABLE solution in any of your posts. What you advocate is just dumping people in poverty and saying "Deal with it"
I almost feel you should be lobotomised just to make sure you never do have a real idea, a brainwave would surely kill you.
Not so simple when you actually consider what the american economy is made up of.
You wouldnt know basic economic's if it slapped you across the face. I almost feel like you're trolling me with your absurd view of the world, You cant be serious.
When did success become bad?
How about that wonderful Teachers Union. You know, the one that backs a group of workers that as a whole, are failing at their jobs.
