Since you're an expert on the economy and wages you certainly know that high unemployment lets corporations get by with shite like this. Get the unemployment down to 5% and this stuff disappears and wages go UP!
 Quoting: mathetes

Why would wages go up. A company is ALWAYS going to pay as little as possible. Corporations are making record profits, they want to get rid of the minimum wage.

Don't be naive.

I guess you weren't working in the mid 90s when unemployment was around 5%. Companies were begging for workers and wages went up

Its simple supply & demand, just one example is RN salaries

"inflation-adjusted wages must increase 3.23.8 percent per year between 2002 and 2016, with wages cumulatively rising up to 69 percent, to end the shortage"

In Jan 2006, I sent 22 people to Drug/screen, background check for a contract I was paying $20 an hour on. Out of those 22, only TWO passed the Drug Screen/Background check, and only ONE of those actually showed up to work.

Now, I can put an ad on Craig's List for $8.75 an hour, and have 100 applications on my desk to choose from, within 4 hours.
