The system itself is corrupt. Economics is THEORY, not universal law.
so unless we take the conspiracy theory side of the debate, we are wrong. gotcha.
of course there is mass corruption in business. but this is about raising the bottom line skill level, bottom line job, bottom line pay.
that by definition, is breaking the hierarchy of employment.
why even get a 2 year degree, when every 8 years or so, minimum wage will be raised to meet what you were making with your skills anyways.
everyone would need to get paid more. its not about the cost of goods and services, they will raise regardless of wages and supply and commodities.
its about how much money you have vs another person.
the system will never allow a less deserving person to have more. with or without freemarket or corruption.
you just have to go and do some research on how corporations treat their employees in third world countries, to know what they ultimately want to do in the US, and other first world countries.
can anyone of you that are against raising the minimum wage show that when it happened in the past, it hurt employers???
Let's face it Jimmy, you seem to support a POTUS whom does everything you come on ATS to preach against.......

Those that strike should be fired. Very simple really.
This whole stupid idea that those working the low rung of the work force should be compensated at such high rates is moronic at best.
When the government has to give subsidies to people who are working full time then that company isn't paying their workers enough. Even burger flippers deserve to make a decent wage.

Just checked and I don't seem to find the "right to have a job after you don't show up because you were striking" statement in any of the Countries Documents.
Is it in your copy of the Constitution???
I can see one. How about we implement laws which level the playing field, so to speak. Nope, not talking about socialism, I'm talking about getting rid of insane wages, and under the table deals for all the sharks out there.
