Earning Potential

Critics of minimum wage raises love to point out how companies cut back on worker hours to compensate. Or implements layoffs. to offset costs. And any number of other such capitalist pig cost cutting tactics.

What they fail to mention is that while jobs are being slashed and hours being reduced, the execs are earning millions.

The problem with America is that there is an extreme imbalance. The people who are wealthy because of the work of the people who are not have gotten too greedy. It's that simple.

If they took home a few million less per year they could afford to pay low level workers more without raising prices and diminishing sales.

It's not enough to simply increase the minimum wage. You have to set regulations on the disparity between the highest level earners and the lowest level ones. There needs to be some kind of regulation regarding wage equality. Because left to their own devices the rich executives will just find a way to screw the little guy.

You can do it that way or you can do it through mich higher taxation on the extremely wealthy. Either way, it needs to be done.

  1. They say wisdom comes with age. 9/15

    From a nice collection:

    "If I should choose to live in my cocoon
    Wrap myself in me and cry myself to sleep
    If I should choose to protect my tender heart
    Build a shell from you steal myself from you
    If I should choose to fall apart
    Don't you think you should let me
    If I should choose to die alone
    You should forgive and forget me

    If I decide I can't do it anymore
    Try to be so hard I'm trying to be so fucking hard
    If I should choose to keep lying to myself
    Pretend my mind is telling truths
    Well I've got my own so who are you

    I know I know I know

    If I should choose fall apart
    Don't you think you should let me
    If I should choose to die alone
    You should forgive and forget me

    If I should choose to fall apart
    Don't you think you should let me
    If I should choose to die alone
    You should forgive and forget me
    You should forgive and forget me
    You should forgive and forget me"
