    Or do you think the fast-foodie at the drive-up window should be paid $30,000 a year?
    That is not the issue at hand. This is:

    Thanks for listing more corps that don't pay a living wage Maggie.

    No you are claiming that someone isn't making a liveable wage but have yet to define liveable wage. Is a young person(16-19) living at home with his parents making minimum wage making a liveable wage?

    That would be why its based on a key factor that varies by area.

    My two bedroom house with the huge yard is $1600 a month here in san diego.

    The same place would be maybe $500 elsewhere.

    Real.estate speculation has economic consequences. Renters generally pay them.

    If the price of beans won't support the necessary labor, the price should go up. Or a smaller profit should be taken. Or beans are an unviable product.

    If you are asking for a specific wage, that would depend on the area you are living in. If you are asking for a definition, I would believe that would be a wage, so that you can pay utility bills, rent, food, etc. I.E. the items that would keep you from being homeless, starving, and sick.

    If you are wanting specifics on say a specific item on my list such as "food", that is a more complex subject. Cheap food is not healthy food, so you could say that contributes to the obescity problem which is yet another more complex subject because it contributes to the other subject item as avoid being sick.

    Either way, BOTH major items of a definition and specific wage of a living wage are very complex items.

    So a double standard as expected. You have no problem with union management making six digit salaries while complaining what non union workers make and calling worker choice a crippling effect on the unions? It is a crippling effect on union management.
