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"

This. Jobs were a dime a dozen.

People jumped from position to position for the increased bennies....an extra week of vacation!

Putting the reason for quitting your last job as "more money" was entirely acceptable.

Very true, in Dallas in the mid 90s company vehicles actually drove around with job ads for the companies

Now days as I walk into businesses I notice signs out front with "WE are Not hiring on them"
