So I put actual thought into my posts and the first time you rebut with "What do you want...a million $ per hour?<quoted text>
And just who is forcing people to work at Walmart?
What happens if the govt forces businesses to pay a "living wage"- whatever the hell that is? Businesses will either cut employees, cut the wages of other employees making more than that, or raise prices of their product/services. CEOs are NOT going to take a pay cut.
Of course I suppose the govt could mandate CEO pay levels as well. After all, if they can dictate minimum pay, there is no reason they can't dictate maximum pay. And not just for CEOs etc, but for EVERY position in EVERY company.
So you wouldn't mind the govt deciding what you should make each year?
Bottom line, if you can't live on $10/hr, then I'd suggest you make yourself worth more to a potential employer, or cut your expenses, or get another job.
Now, instead of replying to what I said, you focus on the place of business that I used as an example; Walmart.
I didn't say I work at Walmart but thanks for suggesting I get a job somewhere else. By your own wisDUMB, all Walmart workers should quit to get higher paying jobs. That's helpful. Really smart.
Bottom line: As corporate America continues to raise it's profits while lowering its employees wages, the middle class will become less and less prosperous and will not be able to buy the things corporate America is selling. I guess you're just to obusy making lame excuses to give a ratsass about the reality that is now a less prosperous America.
