Really, it's as if you were under the impression that the subsidies were created with the living wages bill… No. It wasn't. It's only modifying how businesses spend their free lunch.

Go on quote that.

Straight up it is not yours,mine or anyones to business to be telling what business owners what they should spend money on.

What free lunch ?

Business employs, people,make all the cool things people 'want'.

Pay half of the employees ss contributions

Pay the employees unemployment insurance.

Real easte loans. Machinery costs, and everything else it takes to keep their GD doors open.

So someone cry 'them evil business need to pay for me money, because they think they are worth so they can go buy whatever.




How a company large enough to employ a million dollars in wages isn't paying beyond minimum wage is bollocks to begin with


An opinion that would be worth more coming from a business owner who knows what it takes to run a business, and who deals with the asinine Bureaucracy in New York.

Hey ?

Look up the million dollar cab medallions to see how stupid the business climate is there.

The biggest problem it seems no one wants to talk about is inflation.

FIAT CURRENCY.

People cry all the time about the living wage crap. Throw out any GD hourly number you want.

It doesn't change a damn thing.

The problem that so many won't see, and won't talk about is the money.

Fix the GD money.

My first job hour miinmum wage was $3.25 an hour that has the value of $10 bucks an hour in todays dollars.

Why not, they are spending your money? They are getting tax payer money, which is allocated to certain types of handouts so why not include wages as a provision if they are getting the money?

What are you talking about? This only applies to businesses that take money. Plenty don't.

As a business owner elsewhere I can tell you I don't get a million dollars in subsidies, but my workers make more than minimum wage.

Very confused. The businesses are being told how they can get subsidies, how they are eligible, and how to collect them. So if they are taking in these subsidies, yes, I think people have a say in how it should be spent, because they have a say in how it should be given…

Don't like it? Stop taking government handouts.

Quote you on the confusion? =

You mean to say just because a 'company' that makes 1 million bucks a year be forced to increase wages for every employee they have?

Which translates to higher out of pocket expense the employers are already paying in unemployment insurance. That also translates to higher social security contributions as well.

The biggest thing here any company that gross's 1 million doesn't mean that company is 'profiting' 1 million.



We aren't talking about companies grossing 1 million, talking instead about 1 million in tax dollars given to them.
