    Food for thought.
    You know what would be REALLY cool? If all the liberals that insisted just how easily OTHERS could pay more, contribute more, hire more, etc would just do it themselves already. Funny how it always the people that DONT that just KNOW they can tell those that ARE how easily they could do something BETTER.

    And then what? What happens when you replace the sandwich makers and the delivery drivers and the construction workers and the meat packers and the fruit pickers? You going to keep bitching about a growing unproductive class?

    If minimum wage were tied to inflation (a pretty simple thing to do, yet it hasn't been done, yes?), it would become a driver of inflation. Why would a government want to move from letting the market speak to engineering it?

    You may have noticed that the restaurant still has workers performing all the other tasks other than taking the order and taking the money

    If you are so stupid as to insist that you as a fry cook deserve 15 an hour and make yourself expendable, then a-you deserve to be unemployed and b-you should have to fend for yourself. But hey...no worries, deuce. There are so many of you very loving and caring and committed liberals out there that you are going to open your homes, invite them to your tables, and give freely of your income to sustain them forever. Right? ALl those rich democrats...they are going live a modest but siuccessful existence and just of their own free will give away their excess to feed shelter and clothe the downtrodden. Right?

    There are companies that pay employees better despite your insistence that those people don't deserve it.

    But that point is made to illustrate the fact that "they'd have to double the price of a big mac!!" is incorrect. They'd have to slightly increase the price of food to maintain the same profit level. But why is that a given? Why do people think making less profit is a cardinal sin?

    You didn't answer the question.

    Sure...for now. But that means the machine has become more cost effective than an employee to take an order and give out change. They should be able to build a machine that will replace those inconvenient sandwich makers soon enough.

    Because when we leave the market to its' own devices, it ends up crashing the economy. The economy of the late 19th century and early 20th demonstrates that.
