List your standards. Difficult to know what you are talking about.
You are brain washed by idiot socialist politicians. Take money from corps and give to idiot gov't and money is wasted.
If you don't like WV and you prefer the water in Mexico, I suggest you pack up and move. Don't waste your time complaining.
Obama wants out of Karzai's country so he can reduce the cost of the military so he can apply that money to social programs. MO also.
I suggest you go to the library and check out some books on math and statistics. Since you ask such a question I am sure you will do this. Also while there, check out the Old Testament, it usually gives a lot of insight into things like this.
is practiced in at least 22 areas of the U.S plus they teach radical islam. TV news. They implied that the Fed. gov't is completely aware of it but does nothing to eradicate it. MO.
Obama wants to equalize the incomes of the rich and the poor, there is only one way to do this. Gov't has already mandated minimum wage the next step to equalize income is to mandate a MAXIMUM INCOME. Then every 2 months reduce the maximum income, say 2% and raise minimum wage 2% until the two brackets are just about equal.
Obama and the liberal congress could do this before Obama's term as president ends. I'm sure the liberal leaders will all step up to the plate and start reducing their atrocious high income.
Logic says equalization is impossible if you only work on one end of the pay scale. Only my plan.
creates wealth? Gov't creates absolutely none, zero. Then who creates it? Almost 100% of an economy's wealth is created by: Food, commodities and manufacturing. The rest of the economy runs off of this wealth.
Gov't has absolutely no money unless it takes it from some one that has it.
I can't believe I am seeing and hearing more and more politicians, economists, analysts and others that are saying raising the MW WILL CAUSE A LOT OF JOB LOSSES. I think maybe these people are starting to remember their ECON 101 that says raise wages and it cause job losses. 1935 the US supreme court judges said minimum wage was not smart. 75 years later and politicians still do not understand what they said.
You do not have to be a rocket scientist to understand this. I remember 1949, the coal industry thousands of miners lost their job because of wages and mechanization; GM the same thing, wages and 'robots' that welded and painted;. gas stations all now self service, why? minimum wage cost more than self service pumps; wage increases and mechanization in every industry has cost jobs.
Company makes a profit and mgt gets big raises, labor gets raises (not much0, but the stock holders that are supposed to be the owners of the company get nothing. No dividend increase or stock buy back. Not Fair.
Old Indian Chief said, "That man speaks from both sides of his mouth".
It appears he will say what ever the group he is speaking to wants to hear. Old Indian Chief knows what he is talking about.
None of these people stayed awake during their ECON 101 class that says anytime the cost of labor goes up for what ever reason the cost of all goods and services goes up. You can use just a little common sense to understand this, you do not have to be a rocket scientist..
The reason that any employer hires a person is because he believes he can and will produce more than he is being paid. When the price of labor goes up the employee must produce more. Depending on the business, like restaurants/fast food/retail establishments, it is very hard to justify an employee based on productivity. This is why most hire an absolute minimum of people.
I remember an interview on the business channel: Mgr of a large hotel on the beach, he has received many complaints about not enough bell hops. He agreed. He stated way back when MW was very low the hotel had 10+ bellhops, but as the MW went up he had to reduce the number. He now had 2. The hotel could not justify the 10+ with wages, taxes and benefits.
Only good socialists/progressives/liberals will not understand this. Just the way I see it.
Continued: What kind of a retirement plan does the UAW offer or provide? Years to work to be eligible and monthly benefits. How about medical? Dental? Optical?
Executive compensation is ridiculous but this is a problem that the stock holders have allowed. A CEO making up to 2,000 times what entry level pay is, is a crime against the stock holders. SHs need to get up in arms and rebel against the B of D's. They are the guilty ones that do this. Upper mgt deserves a very good salary and benefits, but stock holders deserve a healthy dividend. Give mgt good benefits but give the share holders their fair share. BO preaches FAIR but what the B of D's does is not FAIR.
From where I sit, it appears to me for this to take place great collusion is at hand. Why do I think so? B of D's have great say so in who is upper mgt. OK, but upper has great say so in who is appointed to the B of D's. A great arrangement for collusion. Common stock holders need to wake up. MO.
