...you have to work for it, or be prepared to accept mediocrity.
Exactly - and if a society is at a point where you do not even get to mediocrity with a full time job, you need a solution for that.
So - any ideas except minimum wages? Or do you prefer to continue with rants and insults?
But those on that wage level won't have lost anything either.
And I think a minimum wage wouldn't have a major influence on inflation.
One problem today is the loss of jobs due to more and more automation and outsourcing of manual labor.
Naturally this causes a drop of wages in certain professions because of less demand.
My opinion is that a society shouldn't allow wages to drop below a level where you can't make a living by a full time job.
Not because I'm so good at heart but because of all the related problems with poverty and crime that come with those low wages.
So - minimum wages seem to be a good idea to me - but I'm always open for better solutions.
The ultimate object in politics is to WIN.
In politics it is to get someone in charge who is trustworthy.
But of course he completely misses the irony that he and the rest of the North Korean elite were enjoying a newly build *ski resort* (quite literally "trampling" the workers in the process) while a significant portion of the population is near-starving, and any citizen who points that fact out is sent to a forced labor camp.
Patience. Western elites are working on evening out the situation.
Yeah. Right now the middle and lower classes are played out against each other.
In my opinion both have a common enemy.
Under no sensible system should fewer than 1% of the population own and control 95%+ of the wealth...
I agree with that.
And I have no solution either. I just think that cutting money for food stamps is a step in the wrong direction.
...when you flash your headlights at them in the left lane.
Which isn't allowed btw.
But that's one of the rules which is often ignored.
Did you take into account that more and more automation in production does call for less workforce.
And maybe the assumption that everybody on foodstamps is refusing to be productive or is generally useless is a bit broad.
So that makes it moral to kill people?
Depends on the quality of loot they drop.
