    Seems to me that you support doing away with these other lower wage jobs that they would have to turn to. Only those who have to work Friday mornings should get this wage increase?

    Rarely is any one thing the cause of a bankruptcy. It would be unfair to blame just the unions and I would never do that.

    nah, more likely they are pissed that they got fired/laid-off so that 2 of their former coworkers could nearly double their salary. people that work for minimum wage typically aren't deep enough thinkers to worry about how the economy works. all they know is that they don't have a job because someone else is making more money

    To be honest, I am not sure what I propose. I know there is something inherently wrong with a system that can allow for individuals to live in squalor while working for the same business that allows another to live in excess. The best thing I can think of, so far, is some sort of ratio'd limit to salary. Sure, you can make $30 million a year, but you can earn up to, let's say, 50 times your lowest paid employee. That way, if you want a raise, guess who else gets a raise? That way, personal income is never limited, but it cannot be earned off of the backs of others.

    I know I'll get hammered for that opinion, but eh, that's just my opinion. Every job in a company is important, or else that job wouldn't exist.

    Then don't.

    You have a way of making sweeping statements and then qualifying them after I challenge you. We're a good team.

    Perhaps, but that's not relevant to whether it's actually true, right?
