How about taxing no one's income? I'll allow for consumption tax just to keep the peace with the 'muh roads' crowd. But beyond that, hold a fucking bake sale if you want to build a bridge.

Coach, how many of those recently unemployed people have you offered to sleep on your couch?

Seems only fair. Do the right thing man.

I see, Wendy's profits are WAY down, they are losing money hand over fist and need to find some way to cut costs. Those poor executives.

Oh wait, maybe you should fucking learn how to Google before you say stupid shit. They're making plenty of money. This money just goes back into their pocket to buy more yachts and hookers. This is just a continuation of the upward transfer of wealth that I've been talking about for like a decade. But you assfucks just keep trying to blame it on the victims who are just trying to feed their kids.

So, what's your plan, Shaun? Just gonna let those kids die in the street? Or are you going to give MASSIVE tax-supported subsidies to multi-billionaires to support those people they de-employed? Hm? That's pretty much your two option.

I mean, of course, there's always the option of taxing the billionaires, but jeezus we can't do that. Those are the job creators, remember what your Lord Reagan said. REMEMBER THE TRICKLE DOWN!!!


Coach, people here are talking about wage hikes on the cost of labor being a bad idea. That isn't because they're oligarchs with yachts who want children to die in the street.

Is that not obvious?

Let's please try to come together by agreeing on a goal:

None of us want children to die in the street. Yes? Agree?

I think that we can also stipulate to the fact that none of us here have a yacht.

STIPULATING TO ALL OF THAT:

Those of us who object to wage hikes are objecting because we think that it wouldn't be good for anybody. Including kids who might die in the street.

Does that seem like a crazy thing to agree on? Or do we need to go back to the previous step?

Can we move on from here to the topic of incentives? Do we all agree so far? Nobody wants David Copperfield to die. Nobody wants David Copperfields to happen in the first place. Agree? Everybody?

Definitely, we should pay people less. That would most certainly help them have better lives.

Nothing you said in that whole post made any sense.

Re: Do fast-food workers warrant being paid $15/hour?

Nothing I said. That helps me calibrate a response about incentives:

I have a small business that sells widgets. I have ten employees. I have to sell a hundred and twenty widgets a day to stay in business. Four of my employees can produce 20 widgets a day, four of them produce about ten widgets a day, and two of them can barely get two or three widgets done per day.

Should I pay them all the same $15/hour? If any one of my top performers finds a better gig then everybody else could be out of a job. Does it really benefit those losers who can barely produce two or three widgets a day, to prop them up in an unsustainable situation?

This is about incentives. Is incentivizing higher productivity a bad thing?
