Its automatically implied anyway that if you have minimum education you must also have minimum motivation and offer minimum contribution to the workplace (not exactly sure what there is to contribute at say, mcds anyway... if you're getting those burgers done on time or handing the right amount of cash back to the customer and not fucking up their order, that should be about what's expected). And then you know..there's people who have above minimum education but still can't get work anywhere else...it must be because they're not properly motivated though so fuck 'em.

Someone has to flip burgers. We can't all be managers.

And I'm of the opinion that anyone who works should make enough to afford food, shelter, clothing etc. without too much struggle.

Its probably their fault they can't afford rent, they're probably trying to live in an apartment that doesn't have roaches. Typical of the entitled poor. What's next? running water?

People should be able to afford necessities like food and shelter regardless of whether they work or not.

Well yes but the point here is being able to afford that stuff without having to apply for help from the government and stuff. Right? Or am I misunderstanding you.

I agree with this as well.

Everyone's pay would go up too if people were no longer held hostage by companies because not working means being homeless

So would you like an age based minimum wage then?

I still don't understand what your deal is. It's not as if the extra two dollars an hour are being deducted from your pay.

You sound like a little kid here

Don't worry guys, THIS time, I know we'll solve this one. Quick, call the president and let him know that our debate is about to produce the answer.

if you can't fork over more than 200 dollars a week to an "employee" you probably shouldn't be running a "company"

It's like you read the first chapter of Economics and then quit.

You missed the next chapter where it explains that the most important thing to an industry is Demand. Demand comes from people having spending money.

Spending money comes from higher pay

"There is no more"

There's fucking plenty of money. There's just such an incredibly high income disparity.

That's probably covered in Ch. 3 which you obviously didn't get to

Companies can't really fire a lot of employees even when the wage goes up, because if they're smart, they're already running with almost as few as possible in order to maximize profits.

When the wage goes up, they can raise prices, but competition generally keeps that in check.

So really the only feasible option is to decrease income disparity
