    you got it twisted.

    we have Privates for those mentally unable to work
    we have Officers for those physically unable to work
    we have NCOs because somebody has to do all the work.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    The more people you have working, the more production you have, and vice versa. Leaving people out of work necessarily cuts down your production.

    Production does determine demand, but a minimum wage further promotes automation that replaces many workers with just a few. It's a lot cheaper for a company like Ford to replace line workers with robots to do all the welding and most of the assembly.

    What does that have to do with minimum wage?

    EDIT: Nvm, I get it. That would lead to lower prices, would it not?

    I am all for machinery replacing people, it moves humans up the evolutionary scale. I am an anti-luddite, and will be until they figure out to make robots that replace retirees....then, they are getting too close to home...

    Certainly, one hell of a clearance sale. My point was, without consumer demand for the product, minimum wage is irrelevant...
    Nobody works....

    When do people stop demanding? If people are producing and getting paid, then they are going to want to buy. If they want to buy more, they'll produce more.

    I was an E5 in Vietnam. I could tell half a dozen really good stories on the Ensign I worked for. He was one that was unfit for thinking. Finally, his boss relieved him of any responsibilities related to our ET shop....

    They stop demanding when, for whatever reason, they can't afford to buy the product...current not so popular reasons, recession, unemployment, etc.
    You answered for me in the part about "getting paid". No money, no buying....oh wait, I forgot credit cards, but that is a different issue...
