If you pay minimum wage, you are saying that you would've paid less if it weren't illegal.

I would pay less taxes if it weren't illegal. I'd pay less for just about anything if given the chance.

Regardless, there's a point where you won't pay more. That's the real issue here. Doesn't matter if it's automated or manual, there is a point where it's just not worth it.

Society thinks people should have a minimum standard of living. Great! I agree. Then society should pay for it. Stop forcing employers of low-skill workers to bear the weight of wealth redistribution. Put it in the tax code, which is more directly under the control of society.

Obviously the second option.

10 wages that require a massive taxpayer subsidy to even look vaguely like a livable wage is worse than 3 livable subsidy free wages and extra money to a highly skilled person (the robot).

The 3 people with a modest disposable income will do more for the economy than the 8 subsidized workers too.

Where as in the US you pretend you can have a minimum wage below the poverty line then spend lots of tax dollars propping those people up with food stamps, etc, or just paying indirectly with theft and other criminal behaviour.

If, as a CEO, you can't see opportunities in your own company, then you are a fool. If you already place limits on the opportunities in a hypothetical scenario, what are the chances you'll be any good as CEO in recognizing real opportunities?

Especially the low-skilled labour.

Funny how you say that AFTER I suggested, among one of the actions, is to train them with better skills to move them into higher skilled roles. CEOs tend to forget that humans have brains and can be trained with new skills. Loosing organizational knowledge is a hidden cost that CEOs tend to blind to.

Your payroll number doesn't match your source. That said I like how that is 'estimated' - having been in the meetings going over year end, where average profit per store was 78% of every dollar earned - I think the 'estimate' is not correct. But hey - if it is the fast food places in other areas with higher minimum wage would be operating at a loss - even though they aren't... so perhaps (again) bad numbers? Oh yeah - biggest cost per store - rent/utilities/product - labor was laughable.

That's mostly a pipe-dream. If you're replacing 9 of 10 employees per location with an automation system, are you going to add 900% more locations to take advantage of the freed-up labour? Chances are if you had the money to expand like that, you'd already have done it.

>The true fool is the CEO who thinks replace-and-fire is the whole of the strategy and a magical solution.

If your company doesn't have massive market growth potential, there's little point in keeping around a human made redundant by a machine. Especially the low-skilled labour, which can be picked up in any market whenever you may decide you need it.

More Options!
Usually, a high-rise building is packed with many options in configuration such as 1 BHK, 2 BHK, 3 BHK and even penthouses!
You won’t be needing a lot of artwork
Adding large painting & wall-hangings may seem like overkill because you’ve got a direct view of the sunrise & cityscape right in front of you! That’s neat, isn’t it?
New Age Structures
The construction of high-rise buildings involves more precision, better architecture & modern technology. This is why, homes in these buildings are more energy efficient, better ventilated and more durable than those in the older buildings.
Safer living experience
Since most high-rise buildings are premium construction, 24/7 security comes along with it. Also, due to its height & architecture prowess, you don’t have grill- up your balconies for more safety. This means better views!
A Perfect Escape
Let’s face it, city-life can become monotonous after a few weeks, and we all need a vacation away from it for a short while. But high-rise buildings show you the beauty hidden inside the cityscape by giving you a completely different perspective of it. Hence, going back home will feel like a serene escape.
There are many more advantages of living in a high-rise apartment, but we’ll leave it for you to experience. Come, embrace them at Presidential Tower in Bangalore – a luxurious high-rise tower in Bangalore.
