I ain't saying they should raise your taxes, get rid of the crap Exxon gets from the gov't to lower them to 17%.
    But if they paid the same amount as you, you wouldn't have a job in the first place. So really, you should be kissing rich people's asses for paying a higher % than you, so you can get a tax break and have a job. Life isn't fair... for the rich.

    Nope

    But they tend to have really horrible air quality and if they are working in coal mines, they also have a high mortality rate. Or if they work for Foxxcon a tendancy to commit suicide from poor working conditions. A rate high enough that safety nets were put up outside the corporate dormatories (yes dormatories which house tens of thousands of workers, rather then the workers having their own homes which they can go to after work )

    And yet, he seems to be arguing that we should want that.

    . They are minor league at best. Again, as long as business can have slave labor elsewhere without having to contend with health insurance costs, they will move off shore.




    Not enough to be of concern. In your world, it seems business should never pay a tax, never pay a wage, never pariticipate in anything other then complete profit of the labor of others. ONce you accept that they can't have 100%profit, that they have to pay in some form, that they hold a responsiblity to pay something, you will further away from your current position.




    Not really. I'm only trying to get you to see that we could deregulate completely, do away with all taxes, and business woudl still leave. As their goal is, as you argue, to make the most profit, it is impossible for them to ever make as much profit here than they can elsewhere if they have to pay our salaries and provide health care. So, if you want jobs here, you either provide EVERYTHING they can get their, including low wages and lack of health care insurance, or you make it less profitable for them to go overseas. I don't see many other options, as they, according to your argument, have no concern other than profit.

    Read, think for a change, and you should understand. I'll hope for the best anyway.

    So, you divert from the discussion. Wish I could say I was surprised.
