    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    The point I think is that big box retailers are guilty of harvesting huge profits at the expense of worker pay. Small business owners are exempt because they likely make much smaller profits, if any.

    Passing cost savings on to consumers is a good idea. Passing them on to your employees, however, seems to be anathema to many big companies.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    You want a class of people to live with out dignity. That is what the fringe right are really after. They want laws that allow them to treat others as animals that don't deserve dignity.

    Walmart are exploiters and I have no sympathy for them.
    No one owes anyone anything.......

    It's their fault they're poor if they're 40-years-old and working at Walmart.

    Learn a skill or a trade that's in demand and then you will get paid more.

    The only people being exploited are those who PROVIDE JOBS, and they're being exploited by the alleged "poor" who believe a job is a right and a private company should be forced to pay them whatever they demand.... THAT'S exploitation.

    one of the factors that cause a higher cost of living is higher wages. so by raising the minimum wage in areas with a high cost of living just will make the cost of living higher

    That's not necessarily true.

    There's already a federal minimum wage.

    What is directly responsible for cost of living is housing and taxes.

    The op is about minimum wage. Abortion clinics pay well.

    Ethics are set by the community. So some communities will make it hard to open an abortion clinic some hard for Walmart.

    As far as 8.5 vs 0 it depends on the context. They might be exactly the same ethically.

    If the wage required to survive is 30 then 8.5 is no more ethical than 0.

    You know the difference between revenue and profit???

    You do realize a company could make a 500 billion dollar capital investment, then generate 500 billion in revenue and that would leave them at even.....

    You see - you're not being honest.

    One person's ****, is another persons opportunity. It's all a matter of perspective and attitude.

    Perhaps it would be best for those who hate to get back to standing by the mailbox, and let those who understand the concept of stepping stone and contribution greater opportunity to get on with their life objectives.
