    Supply and demand.

    The workers will come if the farmers either pay more, or our family subsidy programs make people work part time to stay on assistance.
    It also taught kids work ethics and to value their money based upon what it took to earn it.

    As to farmers paying more, I'm not for sure they can. Food prices are already to the point I don't buy very much fruit or "luxury foods". If things keep going, within the next few years, I am definitely going to have to switch to a depression era diet.

    I can't take credit for the well thought out plan Polgara, it was already done for me by millions of illegal aliens.

    I just described the life of millions of illegal aliens.

    FDR i think wanted an amendment along these lines, to which I say pffft. What about the right to win the mega millions, quit our job, and get unlimited room service?

    Interesting point of view. What do you think? Is having a job a right?

    Adding the poll right now. Answers will be yes, no and I don't know.
    No... it is ridiculous to me how there are people who honestly believe that others not only have a responsibility but AN OBLIGATION to support them, or just give them a job without any meritable reasons to provide such person a job. It is understandable if the person cannot be employed for reasons out of his/her control, e.g. economy or accident, etc. A person who has wasted his/her life, worked for nothing, and just lives off of the public tit, deserves the death through starvation that they have brought upon themselves.

    There are frighteningly many who feel they have an ownership right to control other people's bodies and property.

    when you make a good or service a right, then it has to be paid for or provide by another person, and that is stealing, and servitude.....unconstitutional on both counts.

    stealing by government is unconstitutional, and putting people in servitude is unconstitutional.
    You think an employer is providing a good or service when he offers a job???

    The true colors of (at least some) Libertarians are finally on display!

    I think everyone should be able to work for money if they want. However, I don't think businesses should be responsible for that.

    a job is a good, because it has value!.........people want it.

    i am sorry you cant make good arguments in other threads against me, so your attempt to come into this one, and try to discredit me, has failed.

    People must be goods, then, which also doesn't surprise me coming from a Libertarian. I sure wouldn't mind having a couple of movie stars and I'm sure lots and lots of other people want them, too.

    I just haven't enough time to get back to that thread. Don't feel left out, I have about four others on hold as well.

    I'm sorry you feel like you've "won" something --- and for that you get another ...

    I can't believe that this is even a question.

    No, nobody has a right to a job. To think otherwise is to be oppressive beyond measure.
