    do you feel differently?
    ...and that believes that busineses should be controlled, have no right to decide on how to run their business and have no control on how much to pay their workers.

    please do not be dishonest about my views. I never said nor suggested anything like this.

    The United States of America has a minimum-wage law. Do you consider this to be Communism?

    Communism? Do you understand the term you just used?

    No, but I do find it breach in rights and harmful to minorities and the poor.

    And you did suggest something just that and you supported it again by supporting the minimum wage law.

    on the contrary, minimum-wage laws PROTECT the poor and minorities.

    do you think employers should be able to pay their workers $1.00 an hour for a 40 hour work-week, in the USA?

    That's right!! For all the whinging about creeping socialism, the truth is, we socialists have already won. We got our socialized roads, water supply, business regulations, medical system, internet, pensions, and on and on, and whenever the greedy and immoral capitalism fails, as it always does, the socialists will be there to bail the fail-meisters of capitalism out.

    But no need to worry about the safety of the capitalists. We're always going to want a few around, if only for their comedic value

    No, it cuts the minorities out of the picture even more than they already are due to a lack of skills that are at the moment far superior in whites. If it wasn't there these people would just get hired at lower rates due to less qualifications instead of just not getting the job.

    What is the value of a ten dollars if it buys what a $1.00 bought before it took place? What I prefer is the market handle this and the people have the ability to work where they get the most money.

    Isn't it great how, even with their far superior skills, the white capitalists require the subsidization of massive bailouts to stay in business?
