Re: “Low-income workers just got a raise — which may or may not be a good thing

Oh, I see, Mr. Bird. Everything is about name-calling for you. Maybe you think it helps avert attention from the facts. Read something academic--as opposed to late-night radio conspiracy theories--concerning supply and demand and you will learn that employees are in fact considered an expense; and with the minimum wage increase, employers are threatening to cut hours and staffing in order to cut--what was it--yes, expenses. Ask someone in business what the first rule in business is; I'll save you the trouble, the first rule is pay yourself.

Re: “Low-income workers just got a raise — which may or may not be a good thing

Of course it's a good thing. Business owners love to talk about supply and demand, although, as if employees are not also consumers. On the supply side, employees are seen as an expense that needs to be minimized; on the demand side, the more income a person has the more they will spend. Recognizing the fact that employees are consumers undermines the justification for the absurd 1 to 360 income ratio as discussed above by Mr. Bird. I would clarify, Mr. Bird, that no CEO, no matter how talented they think they are, is 360 times more valuable than the lowest-paid worker who puts their products on the shelves or provides their services. I wonder, Mr. Bird, what do you get out of making unqualified characterizations such as "unlike lefties?" Does saying something stupid help your argument? No. Enough.
