Holy **** for Real !!!!!

WELL, YOU SEE, WHEN A COMPANY - is forced to pay the workers more, their prices have to go up to match the income versus the payout. This idea is foreign to the Liberals because they can't balance their budget.

EmmaRoydes - May 23, 2014, 2:29 pm
so, cranky clown, tell me what that has to do with the real discussion. The truth is that it doesn't matter whether or not I am for or against them, they are available and the poorer you are, the more that is available to you.

Are you really going to sit there with a straight face and pretend like manufacturing in N.A. hasn't been completely gutted by off-shoring?
EmmaRoydes - May 23, 2014, 1:06 am
As long as Pell Grants and other government programs exist, there is no reason for anyone to work at mcdonalds. There are jobs out there, but people have to gain the proper skill sets to take advantage of them

Olympus? Inflation? Hello?
Olympusmanager - February 19, 2013, 8:58 am
And again, you're a**uming. Too bad you're so awful at it.
crankyhead - February 18, 2013, 5:42 pm
Again, you willfully ignore the pertinent part of this conversation. How do we stop inflation?
Renza - February 18, 2013, 4:58 pm
So, you're a corporatist that favors an extremely class segregated economy and social environment?
Renza - February 18, 2013, 4:56 pm
Just to point out, you're a**uming that everything the government does has an impact on the economy, as well as a**uming that raising the minimum wage will affect the economy negatively.
Olympusmanager - February 18, 2013, 4:38 pm
You shouldn't a**ume anything.
crankyhead - February 18, 2013, 3:05 pm
But North America is a consumer based economy. Raising the minimum wage stimulates consumption (people have more disposable income) and this in turn drives the economy. Anyway, you didn't answer the second part of the question: How do we stop inflation?
crankyhead - February 18, 2013, 2:49 pm
You support abolishing the minimum wage? Let me guess, you support repealing the 13th amendment too?
Olympusmanager - February 18, 2013, 2:27 pm
You can believe as you wish, Everything government does has an imact on the economy, and raising the minimum wage will affect the economy negatively. The increases WILL be passed along, no matter what you do.
Olympusmanager - February 18, 2013, 2:26 pm
What gives you the idea that I support freezing the minimum wage? I support abolishing it. Until you do, there's no free market economy.
crankyhead - February 18, 2013, 1:40 pm
@ Olympus: If you're in support of freezing the minimum wage, what is your solution for freezing inflation in a free market economy?
Renza - February 18, 2013, 12:38 pm
I believe that you are mistaken good sir, it is not a matter of arrogance, it is a matter of using absurdity to point out absurdity. The prices in the economy will go up no matter what, short of us finding a way to cause deflation or stop inflation.
Olympusmanager - February 18, 2013, 10:21 am
What you hear is someone wondering at your ignorance of how things work, and your arrogance in bluting out ridiculous statements that even YOU don't believe.
Renza - February 18, 2013, 10:03 am
So, if giving better wages to the poor is bad, should we instead cut wages for the rich to balance it out? or are you rather in favor of having poor people instead of a middle class?
crankyhead - February 17, 2013, 5:18 pm
@ Olympus: Do you have any suggestions as to how a free market economy is supposed to halt the advance of inflation? Or are you suggesting that people who are willing to work 40 hours a week, deserve to live below the poverty line?
PapaFox - February 17, 2013, 2:06 pm
You mean the times Republicans raised it? Is that hypocrisy I hear?
Olympusmanager - February 17, 2013, 9:49 am
You bet they speak volumes, about your ignorance. Raise the minimum wage and the price will go up on everything, just like every other time you geniuses raise the minimum wage.

I'll also point out that this holds true for the wealthy and corporations as well, many of which go about demanding governmental benefits and special tax breaks, and tax loopholes.
Renza - February 22, 2013, 1:05 pm
While I agree that people need to take responsibility for their lives and need to do what they can to improve them, that's a very cynical and closed minded implication of all poor people being too lazy to do anything but ask for handouts.

Min wage has not kept up with inflation; it's just that $15 an hour is a bit much and a huge jump. But no one should aspire to work fast food for life, and expect to live off of that kind of no skill menial labor. (I used to do it when I was 16)
Cyberhagen - February 14, 2015, 1:00 pm
Interesting spin. So *not* giving a raise is *taking away* money? Also, those people should be working better jobs then, or not having kids. That said, beats them going on welfare, and they are trying, so I think a compromise is fair.
