a) Congratulations, you're now more of a burden to your employer than you were before, and at higher risk of losing your job entirely when he/she decides it's no longer profitable to run a business.
What will the employer do after he shuts down the business, sit on his hands? I think he has to earn his living somehow, too. Entrepreneurs are not magic fairies (well, most of them aren't).
b) Um, inflation has to be managed, or else it wrecks the economy. Google Weimar or Zimbabwe hyperinflation and get a bit of an education on real world economics.
I didn't say inflation doesn't need to be managed. I said, inflation is inevitable. If you go to zero inflation, there's no incentive to invest. Money stops moving. Economy is screwed.
I know of hyperinflation. To get into one, you need serious economy mismanagement. A 100 million americans going from $10/hr to $15/hr is not going to have that effect. Assuming 40 hour working weeks, 52 weeks a year, the difference is about 1 trillion, or about 6% of the GDB of US (2012). Spread that over a couple of years, and you're well within "normal" inflation, and nowhere near hyperinflation.
c) Slacking in any job long-term doesn't help anyone. The employer gets less value, and the employee's skills don't develop. It's the formula for mediocrity, which you are advocating for gleefully.
Wait, what? Did you even read my post before replying?
