    So, preserving the company by making sure profits aren't dropping in order to keep investors happy is just an excuse?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Someone will use it as an excuse rather than their own mismanagement.

    I find these stories funny being that these douche bosses who haven't really done anything exemplary in the past for their employees now turn around and use Obamacare as the "REAL" reason they are douches. Go **** yerself movie chain jerk bosses.

    Not sure what world folks live in. Minimum wage jobs are not, never have been, and never will be jobs meant to sustain a 'living wage' and certainly not to take care of/provide for families. We are talking jobs for kids, teeneagers, college students trying to make a few bucks to go on a date or two during the month, or workers augmenting a 'real' job.

    If someone is in one of these jobs and trying to raise a family, its a good bet they didnt max out their SAT.

    I still have yet to hear a proponent of 'Obamacare' offer a legitimate reason why employers should be responsible to provide healthcare for their employees.

    Stuns me that you don't give a rat's ass about what executives make, but you have strong feelings towards the average joe's wage. Why is that?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I believe in contracts and market factors. Anyone can turn a wrench to a degree, not everyone has the management skills to run a company, the rarity of the skill set determines your ceiling. I don't want an artificial wage set whether it's a maximum or an "industry standard" such as a union wage. If an executive is running a company I have stock in towards the ground, yes, I will be beyond pissed that he is making that kind of money, but likewise if a union is setting wages that are crushing competitiveness and I'm losing on my portfolio, I'm equally pissed.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
