anyone who complains about people wanting a higher minimum wage is fucking awful and should shut the fuck up
this isn’t even a Marxism thing this is a Basic As Fuck Human Decency thing
Who would complain about someone wanting a higher minimum wage?? We all want our minimums to go up.
If you study a few hours into economics you would understand the impact of the minimum wage law. As a small business owner (coffee stand), I WANT to pay my employees more. Nothing would thrill me more than giving them more.
However, consider these few facts and maybe you will get the reality of the situation.
1. The business makes at BEST a 10% profit. Raising minimum wage will reduce that by nearly 2%. Now I make 8%.
2. Raising minimum wage means all my suppliers have to raise delivery and product fees, because they too have to adjust for higher costs. That will run reduce my profit by 3-5%. Now I’m at 5% profit.
3. My payroll taxes is going up because the higher minimum wage creates a tax bracket bubble. With that said, I will make no money.
What can I do about this? The same thing everyone else does. I raise my prices. So does the gas pump and the grocery store and restaurant. Now suddenly everyone’s cost of living jumped 3-10%.
Are you grasping the reality yet? Yes paying people a good living wage is a business owners responsibility. The forced increase is a small piece of the pie that puts us small business out of business
what the fuck makes you think we care about your profits
eat my entire ass
yeah man fuck profits :))
Hippie: Right now we’re proving we don’t need corporations. We don’t need money. This can become a commune where everyone just helps each other.
Hippie: Yeah, we’ll have one guy who like, who like, makes bread. A-and one guy who like, l-looks out for other people’s safety.
Stan: You mean like a baker and a cop?
Hippie: No no, can’t you imagine a place where people live together and like, provide services for each other in exchange for their services?
