    Yes. But they gave huge amounts of concessions, in a direct attempt to avoid it, even if it didn't work out. So once again, you made a blanket statement that was demonstrably false. Unions do give concessions in an attempt to help their employer and preserve their jobs. So don't say they don't.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    but only as a last resort and only when failure to do so will result is the loss of their jobs.

    it depends on what you liberals claim "a living wage" to be. I have seen many of your bretheren claim that the HS dropout janitor at mickey D's "DESERVES" the same standard of living as the PhD rocket scientist

    By that logic, they should be paying workers nothing.

    You have no idea what they'd do. Labor is just another cost. They go up and down, and businesses deal with it in different ways.

    crude oil prices go up, does big oil absorb the cost? hell no, they raise gas prices. what makes you think that walmart would act any differently?[/QUOTE]

    Wal-Mart has competition, for one thing. When crude oil prices go up, they go up for all suppliers since oil is a single commodity with a price set on a worldwide market.

    Nobody here has made that claim. Focus, Oscar.

    A last resort? It was back in 2003 - EIGHT years before American declared bankruptcy. And notice that they still have their jobs.

    Then why is he talking about it?

    That's my point - it's not relevant.

    ie. If a company is taxed 5%, they may pass none of it along, 1% along or even all 5% - depending on the situation. So, where is your evidence of the rise and fall? kthxbai
    Can I argue that if costs rise 5% that a company may decide to not pass along all 5%? No, but they are going to make it up somewhere especially with those traded on the markets. If they do not somehow cover these costs their stocks tank. So do I think this is an asinine way of doing things? I do, but still it is right now what it is.

    So perhaps a few walk in and are laid off because Wal-Mart just installed the new self check out registers. Businesses are going to cover their increased costs somehow.

    Again though, the real problem right now seems to not get addressed. The government creating artificial inflation.
