You can't even be honest.
I must have gotten confused by all the time you said $15 minimum
And you are saying that Bernie Sanders isn't asking for the federal wage to be $15, because that's what I said, and you said that's dishonest.
Just want to clarify that
yeah FOR HIS COMPANY NOT THE FEDERAL MIN. WAGE which is what you are talking about when you say McDs workers should not get $15 an hour for fastfood.
So you don't support Sanders' Fight for $15... because that would be a federal minimum wage
WTF are you talking about, Amazon changed their entery level pay to $15 an hour, you are tallking about the federal min wage and claimed that is what we are talking about and why you pointed to min wage vs iving wage in that article.
Let me phrase i another way:
You acknowledge that a living wage, and a minimum wage are different
Do you think the federal minimum wage should be $15 an hour?
You do understand just because Amazon is now giving $15 an hour nothing changes for the rest of the country.
Except that Bernie's rallying cry is it to change for the rest of the country... do you agree with that?
yes min wage should be $12 at least for people working party time at McDs in HS or college.
Ok, so you don't agree with a $15 an hour minimum wage, just that entry level at certain corporations should be $15
But that still changes the marketplace
Wal-Mart is a company that makes billions, should they be $15? And if they should be, what is stopping any 15-21 year old kid just going there instead of McDonald's?
LOL if you dont think billion dollar companies can pay entry-level workers $15 an hour and still make billions. Espeically the people making at the top take a small pay cut if they don't want to cut into their bottom line
You seem to not be understanding, that I think very lowly of someone who has a family and works an entry level job.
If you did things the right way, and started working in HS/College, there is no reason you need an entry level job when you would need to sustain you own income.
I stopped making minimum wage at 17 years old, there is no reason anyone over 23 should be making it
LOL way to deflect the way they would be paying for it with Trump tax cuts
Yes, because we weren't talking about Trump tax cuts, you didn't acknowledge my point about grownups making minimum wage, I am not wasting time talking to you about Trump
yes it is about the money you earn if you don't earn enough to stay afloat you are screwed and that is the point people like you miss
if you are working two jobs and still cant pay your bills, basic bills, something is broken. And its a joke you dont think an entry level professional job should pay at least $15 an hour
This is what poor people say.
If you are working two jobs and can't pay your bills, you need less bills.
What's broken is you.
My grandmother got divorced and stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment with my mom and Aunt for 7 years, working for a better life
Don't try to make me feel sorry for anyone
Learn a trade, better yourself, there is financial aid, and things out there.
Elon Musk talked about working 100 hours a week, when everyone does 40, he earned his money.
Nothing is stopping anyone from going to do those things, you want people to be lazy, you want them to be dependent, you want them to be stuck
If you can't figure out how to make shit work on 11 an hour, then what is 15 going to do?
Don't live beyond your means, invest in yourself, and don't stop learning, someone taught me these things at 19 years old, and I made good doing it.
Like I said bleeding heart, you get a paycheck, before paying your bills, help someone pay there's, I am not in the business of charity for people who don't want to do anything about their situation
yet another deflection lol
Only because you realized how dumb it is what you said.
"If people made more money, they would put the money back into the products"
Well, then what is the point of even giving them the money, you think them buying more stupid shit helps their situation?
