Thanks for the detailed response. I do agree that most workers are not fungible in the way that forty workers working one hour per week can replace one worker working forty hours per week (to reduce the idea to absurdity).
The days of Lyft and Uber being able to use 1099 "contractors" are numbered, no matter whether a Republican or Democrat win this year. The Treasury is not going to miss out on those sweet, sweet payroll taxes for what are employees by any reasonable test for much longer.
Doesn't job sharing help dodge the ACA mandate (e.g. two 20 hour per week employees won't trigger mandatory health insurance coverage, but one 40 hour per week one would, oversimplifying away rules regarding number of employees overall)? I'm surprised this hasn't caught on just so cheap-ass businesses can get away without providing health coverage to their employees.
Takes "copyright Nazis" to a whole new level. Since Goebbel's diaries were associated with his crimes (as others have pointed out), I hope this doesn't get far. There is no reason his descendants should profit from his notoriety.
Can you say "Self-fulfilling prophecy"? I tip on amount of the bill before the coupon for good service -- but if I get shitty service because the waiter thinks I'm not going to tip well, guess what: he's right.
