You don't even make any sense
PS if CEOs made a little less and that money went to paying its workers, your prime wouldn't have to go up in your hypothetical.
Are you not getting it the first time I said it:
I don't care about someone who couldn't cut it needing to make more money.
if you have a family, you shouldn't have a minimum wage job, period.
minimum wage jobs are built for children to get their start in, and have a family that they can depend on
Yes, i feel no remorse for the 26 year old, that is working full time at Mickey D's or entry level at Amazon, because he doesn't think he can do better.
what the CEO doesn't make a difference to me, because it aint my money anyway.
it doesn't make sense because you feel sorry for those people, well, then if you have a bleeding heart, give them your stuff, you have more than they do, so that would be just as good.
And how would my prime not go up?
Someone has to pay those workers... and then what happens when the people make 15 want a raise... because they are now making the minimum, so you raise them to 18
then what about the $18 an hour workers, so you raise them to 21
then the $21 an hour workers.. and so one and so forth.
Where does this money magically come from?
Just the CEO? Doubt it.
billionaires don't become billionaires because they like to lose money
