well anyone makin minimum wage is not makind a decent living. can we agree on that. so, for example, someone working at mcdonalds, or walmart, or a gas station, or a grocery store more than likely makes minimum wage if it is not a union shop. meanwhile, those companies are making huge profits. i do mean huge. if walmart or mcdonalds were unionized and the workers made say double minimum wage or near that would that really affect the business? or would it mean that the companies would make hundreds of millions instead of billions? i kinda doubt that unions would kill most places. im not talking about mom and pop shops, but big businesses.

also, im not saying we should unionize every place and raise wages and benefits only to raise the cost of living to negate the whole thing. a mcdouble could still cost $1.00 even if the workers there were making $16.00 an hour. it just means the billionaires that own the place would make a little less. i could prolly get more into this and be more thoughtful and descriptive with my examples and ideas, but im taking a dump as i wirte this. kinda multitasking.
