    Slavery has nothing to do with what I said.

    Do you know anyone that is a slave? If so, I'll join you in your complaint. Otherwise, it's none of my business how many anyone else makes as long as they do not want my money to keep them from going out of business.

    Remind me again why you support these executives?
    Perhaps you need to re-read what I said.

    Clearly you didn't even skim the article. more than half of it is after the civil war.

    Nowhere in that article was an example of this.

    So you don't want the government to intervene if, say, 99.9% of the country were making four cents an hour, and the other .1% were making millions upon millions?

    Okay, so now it has to be exactly like that? The fact that you refuse to answer my question unless I provide a real life example absolutely astounds me. It doesn't matter if it has actually happened in history. My point is that the government shouldn't stand by and let corporations treat their workers like ants. Otherwise, things like this will happen:
    The Triangle Shirtwaist Fire of 1911

    Sorry, is that not the example you gave?

    If you think something that actualy is occuring is wrong, bring it up. Don't make up completely made up scenario's. Those are a complete waste of time. How many angels fit on the head of a pin?

    I guess you misunderstood me.
    The key word was EXACTLY. Earlier, you said "close to."
    Also, the triangle shirtwaist fire really did happen. Lern2history.

    In that case, I care less what the CEO was making. Do I care that a safe workplace is provided? Absolutely.

    You think that's it? They weren't just in an unsafe environment. Look at this:
    Working for the Triangle Shirtwaist Company
    Allow me to do the math for you.
    6:30 AM - 9:00 PM, that's 14 and a half hours a day, six days a week. That's 87 hours of work in one week, for a dollar and a half a week. that averages out to less than two cents an hour.
    THIS, my friend, is how the lives of people like you and me will be if the corporations are no longer supervised by the government.

    These are truly pathetic people. This is what happens when you don't bother to raise your children.
