    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?
    Those making minimum wage are getting killed with energy costs right now also. They've increased many times over while wages have stagnated. If this was a fundemental thing it would require a different arguement but they are what they are because of the government artificially inflating the markets.

    point being, I have seen people on this forum make that claim. contrary to what you have asserted. their political lean is irrelevent

    That's my point - it's not relevant.
    then why not ask him instead of replying to me?

    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.
    They may or may not need to make up all of that 5%. However, assuming they do, perhaps they put 10% of the rise into cost, and 90% into labor cuts. I personally believe two jobs that pay $12 an hour are more beneficial to society than 6 that pay $6.50 an hour.

    LOL, O.K. but we are going to need to tax the hell out of that $12 an hour to support the other 4 out of work.

    But those jobs are a "dime a dozen". Shouldn't they be able to turn around and find work anywhere else? I mean, remember, these people are useless and replaceable at any point, right?

    They'll be in a higher tax bracket so you won't need to. Not to mention, at $6.50 they probably weren't really paying much in taxes - if any federal and state tax at all. Also, see above, why can't these useless individuals find work somewhere else?

    You're blaming the unions for the bankruptcy. That's entirely unfair. They did plenty to help, but they are not 100% responsible. Plenty of non-union businesses have gone bankrupt lately.

    Bet they wish other workers had more to spend so the economy would recover and they could get jobs too.
