How is he going to create a high wage job, when he is just starting a business? There is a minimum wage for a reason. When there are not enough low wage workers (because they all started their own businesses) the markets will correct themselves and the wages will increase because, as you said, the job has to be filled.It doesn't matter! Those jobs have to be filled! Okay, so Joe Blow quits his job "working for the man" and starts a new company up. Fine, but first, someone else will have to take his place because that low-wage job has to be filled by someone. Second, he probably just created at least a few more low-wage jobs as well, each that needs to be filled.
No one is arguing with you that there is not opportunity for advancement, only that that opportunity is available to everyone. It's not physically possible for everyone to advance. Someone has to have that job.
I didn't say they were lazy and incompetent. I said they were ignorant.Who do you think those masses are composed of?
