    So here we are saying the present economic condition has a net benefit of being able to absorb minimum wage increases... all seemingly good news... and you are still complaining via these terrible generalities absent any input as to what should be done about it?

    I am still not entirely sure what he is complaining about.

    Why do you allegedly care? Doesn't that require morals. It is about equal protection of the laws. Truth in legal advertising!

    The law is the law; only illegals don't care about the law. Why blame only less fortunate illegals?

    You could try to at least bother to align the talking points you regurgitate. You could also try to write sentences.

    I have seen this user at play in other threads. More often than not, he responds using single-line comments that make absolutely no sense. And I don't mean this as a hyperbole, I mean that literally: he makes unintelligible comments. He won't explain to you that he is critical of the workings of markets. He will just blurt out overused clichés in the middle of something that is meant to be a sentence, yet clearly isn't one. Or he will use weird phrases like "at-will employment state," without context or explanation.

    If you've ever seen James in this subforum, danielpalos is exactly like that except his grammar is worse and he leans to the left instead of leaning to the right.
