Evict 30 million habla espanol parasites and wages will rise . Then heavily militarize the border and put bounties on scalps . Then wages will begin to rise.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 55408475


at least there is one person on glp with a brain. Praise be allah.

parasites are an apt description. sucking up resources and paying virtually nothing back into the system. it seems no can see the link between low wages & benefits and the hoard of parasitic leeches that have descended upon this country
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 55368898


This is actually true. I did a paper in college on this very subject. The higher the mexican population in the area, the lower the wages are. This holds true whether you flip burgers or do IT work. It doesnt matter, wages are lowered actross the board.

That's just it. It's not just workers. There has been the prevailing idea that workers should be at odds with their employers. When the fact of the matter is that the politicians and bankers (Not all of them, but many of them) are the ones keeping that idea going. (It's so that the workers and employers don't realize how much the politicians and bankers are taking from them!)

Look at those getting wealth and power at present. You will find more that you can name that got it through ill means then through honest ones. Think about how many millionaires and billionaires have made their fortunes from non-profit organizations....

We need to flush the economy to clear out the parasites. To many people taking, and not enough producing.

Meanwhile our media and politicians want the unemployed and working class to blame the employer.

It's much more complicated then that now. You see, the total in American wealth is actually not held by private individuals. That is why the national deficit is such a big deal.

15 Trillion dollars. In order to match that the US population of 300 million each citizen would need an actual net worth and disposable dollar value equal to 50,000 dollars.

The unfortunate problem with this is debt, and net worth. Most Americans are in debt as bad as the government, and do not actually have a positive net worth.

That's why I say we're presently in a currency death spiral, and raising the minimum wage will do little to ease the pain which is coming to us all.

Inflation and deflation are not a result of every day Americans spending or holding their wealth. It is now a matter of robbing peter to pay Paul (Trading debt.)

In my opinion our current political, economic, and cultural base has gotten so out of control, and so off base that the only fix is a crash and rebirth.

Removing minimum wage now would be insane, by itself. You would also need to remove all the parasites as well, and provide an honest system of trade and currency. As it stands now, minimum wage is nothing more then a bribe in an already corrupted system.

So, if you like go ahead and raise it. It doesn't actually mean anything. Now that much of our economy is a command based economy(currency manipulation, debtm, and regulation based) everything is relative to what winners and losers are picked by those that hold the power. The kings and queens will give the plebs just enough money, bread, and circuses as long as they don't riot.... getting a little more bread still doesn't fix the problem of corruption.

When I hit the work force, the mnimum wage was 90 cents. That was the last time I made minimum wage. Minimum wage jobs are entry level jobs, they are just a start. If you can't do better than minimum wage work, you will need to learn how to live on minimum wage. I have three grown kids that never worked for minimum wage.

It does not work because when your employer pays more for labor, they raise the price of goods and services. This is called inflation. Your pay check looks bigger, but you pay more for everything, plus a higher tax rate.

Re: Re: Minimum Wage -- Working People of America------UNITE! ACT!
Its simple really, short of fixing it with sound money we should crash the real estate down to .10 on the dollar and remove the minimum wage laws and open up the market with a floor of wages between $1 - $3 for general labor. It should be a guideline, not a law. Some would pay more and some less.

From that point we would get equilibrium with China, Russia and others and be able to compete in the global market with USA made products and this would bring most of the manufacturing back and even cause countries like germany to build factories here.

Simply raising minimum wages is not effective because prices just end up rising making the wage increase useless. Raising wages does nothing for anyone.

It would also force more smaller businesses to close and cause more layoffs.

You cant operate inside the existing system like this without more of the same, always worse.

That is what has to be done if we want to keep the existing fiat money monopoly system in place.

There are better options of course.

You are wrong about removing politicians when removing minimum wage. They cant do anything in relation to money except raise the debt ceiling or spend it. This is above them. Funny thing is if they removed minimum wage laws the useless idiots would vote them out and replace them with someone who screws it all up again.

It would be better to strip the federal reserve of its charter and never repay them and jail them to boot all while replacing their fiat currency with congressional money which would be debt free.

Same goes for all countries since they are all in the same predicament.

You could not pay $16 if there were no taxes. Have you thought this through?

Lets say min wage is $10 for a small business with 5 employees.

That is an extra $12,480 per person not counting the added taxes you would pay.

Lets call it $65,000 per year.

Does a business of 6 pay that much in taxes?

Not likely. Its more realistic to think they pay very little if anything.

Its employees that pay taxes generally speaking. Business owners just reinvest and take deductions.

This is cute, but not really a true analogy for two reasons: 1) the fact is, people work for minimum wage for years for the big companies......supplying the work that is needed. How can they be unskilled when they have done this work necessary to these companies' benefit for years? They get maybe a .10 raise per year, which keeps them in the poverty level. Yet they are ensuring their companies' survival (and profit for the shareholders) with their work.

Your turd analogy is not true also because 2) There are many companies that pay minimum wage and sell things constantly, for years, that are NOT turds--PLENTY OF PEOPLE BUYING THE PRODUCTS THAT ARE SOLD AT THESE MINIMUM WAGE COMPANIES, made possible by the work of people who are only making minimum wage.

This behavior should be part of your daily life at work and every other part of your life. Most people screw off as much as they can. Adults act like children at work and they will take advantage of as much as they can.

WHOEVER YOU ARE, IF YOU ARE WORKIING IN AMERICA and NOT being paid what you are worth, we would like to hear your story. Please send us an email to [email protected]

The above is a gratuitous troll for email. The majority of people feel they are underpaid, including those who spend all day at work surfing sites like this one, LOL!


Well, ducky, your post seems to have missed the point of my whole post. Or maybe you just like disagreeing disagreeably for the sheer fun of it. In any case, I disagree that God does not care about my wages. Anyway, hear you next time......

IF YOU ARE UNEMPLOYED: take any job that will hire you, and if they won't give you a decent wage, QUIT! Leave them in the lurch! Stop letting them take advantage of you by paying you a wage that is too low.


 Quoting: New Eve



So you tell unemployed people to take any job at minimum wage and then QUIT ?, why even say something stupid as this.

Why even force a small business owner to pay more when its even hard on them..

Are you a card carrying communist asshole..

You took one of my sentences out of context. If you would read the whole post you would see that I am counselling people who find themselves in low-paying jobs. But you are just floating around on GLP taking stabs at people trying to have decent conversations.

Well...you will get just what you deserve. But in the meantime, just go away....This thread is not for you.
