 No.630838

At a conference last week at the Dallas Fed, the corporate leaders onstage declared that the era of across-the-board raises was over, and would never return.

Troy Taylor CEO of the Florida Coke franchise put it succinctly: "It’s just not going to happen. [A general raise is] absolutely not in my business."

The moderator asked the panel whether there would be broad-based wage gains again. "It's just not going to happen," Taylor said. The gains would go mostly to technically-skilled employees, he said. As for a general raise? "Absolutely not in my business," he said.

John Stephens, chief financial officer at AT&T, said 20% of the company's employees are call-center workers. He said he doesn't need that many. In addition, he added, "I don't need that many guys to install coaxial cables."

It was once the standard that firms that performed well would give all their employees an annual raise, in part to acknowledge workers' contribution to the business's fortunes, in part to ensure that wages kept pace with inflation (otherwise workers would be suffering a real-terms pay-cut every year).

American firms are more profitable than ever, and enjoying never-seen low rates of taxation, but the new profits and retained earnings are being diverted to financial engineering schemes like stock buybacks that enrich shareholders, while workers' wages have suffered from decades of stagnation.

there are people out there who are SO delusional, they actually believe that Trump has 'fixed our economy'. The truth is, we are doing just as bad as before, and the only thing Trump accomplished so far was a massive tax break for the very rich. Sure, you can find a job, as long as you're willing to work at a McDonald's for minimum wage.

The Singapore Summit was all a bunch of hype, because the 'agreement' they signed had absolutely nothing concrete in it. The terms of the 'agreement' stated that the two nations 'agreed to discuss things further'…

Across the board wage increases doesn't make sense though.

The guy sweeping floors hasn't become suddenly more efficient.Why does he deserve a raise?

Theft is evil. Redistribution is theft.

Why does a kid with inherited wealth get to live scott free while the average joe has to work above minimum wage for his pay?

He can live scott free. Or he can not.

It's the Koch's money to spend.

Okay, let's look at a chain of events.

Richest man on the planet, Jeff Bezos.

He was born to two 17 year olds, last time he saw Bezos was when he was 3.

Bezos starts a company, selling books out of his garage online after saving up money working at jobs. Makes a company called Amazon. It provides a service people want, disrupts an existing market place. He made it, so he owns it. Any of his employees could have made their own competitor, but chose not to, either because of some trust in his leadership, or not wanting to risk their home to get out loans for a business, or because they wanted a steady paycheck. The company continues to grow, and eventually it goes public and is sold on the stock market. Now, a lot of people want a piece of it, so you have groups like teachers unions, or police pension funds, or private individuals. And since there's a limited amount of shares, the prices go up, because everyone wants a piece of Amazon.

Now, he has all this money, and since it's his money, he decides to give it to his kids.

That's why. And to take from him would be an evil act, as you would be stealing. All those exchanges were voluntary, and you would be bringing a gun into the equation and taking his money at gunpoint

Because he's sweeping the floors, that's why. He is providing you a service, spending his time and effort to keep your floors free of dust and debris, a job you didn't want to do yourself. His work makes your business a clean and positive work environment, and thus should be recognized for the work he does for you.

That floor sweeper is a fellow human being, and as such owes nothing to you. In fact, you owe him, for his contributions to your business are immeasurable. A man is giving a part of his life to you. It is only fair that he should be well compensated for it.


 No.630867

In all fairness, I suppose it would be pretty hard to accomplish anything when you were busy around the clock, illegally using campaign funds to payoff prostitutes, doing damage control regarding your connections to the Russians, creating insane tweets about how you're 'not guilty'.

With a busy schedule like that, it's understandable that he doesn't have time to take care of America

Yeah the situation is definitely better outside the US where companies dont routinely give to charity. Forcing someone to give to charity isnt really charity at all.

Back on topic: One thing companies will spend money on is growing their market share. Depending on the nature of the business that means increasing their number of retail locations, distribution centers, increasing your fleet of vehicles, purchasing advertisements and endorsements etc.

People have to build those buildings, then employees have to run them, plus all the associated services like transporting and feeding workers. That all stimulates the economy.


 No.630874

Politics are boring and predictable.

I think what really speaks volumes about a man is how women perceive them.

You mean besides the fact that you refuse to sweep your own god damned floors? Fine then. How's about making him (the floor sweeper) more able to consume your service/product and more services/products in general. It may shock you to learn this but as people get more money, they spend more money, which gives you a better market to exploit. They also tend to have less need to go into debt, which reduces the odds of them defaulting on their loans which increases the stability of the economy (which helps you make more money). As people move out of 'below poverty line' conditions you'll also see their neighbourhoods become less criminally inclined - that saves you money in the the lower expenditure on policing, incarceration etc as well as making you safer.

The only motivation I can see in your argument is basically just "FUKIN POORFAGS LOL, STOP BEIN LAZY 'N JUST INHERIT MORE MONIES!" Grow up. Excessive redistribution is harmful, but some level of redistribution is an expected and necessary part of living in a functional society. Even going as far back as ancient Rome wealthy citizens paid their taxes in order to provide a welfare net for their poorest citizens (look it up, the Grain Dole was a hugely significant part of the politics of the Roman Republic). If you want to live in some kind of Ancap dream world then don't let anyone stop you - just go and do it somewhere else where nobody else has to put up with your shit.

America has got so many problems that need to be taken care of immediately, and I'm not talking about Obama's health care initiative or tariffs from foreign Nations. We are completely dysfunctional, collapsing from within, and it's much more than just economic.

It wouldn't matter if Hillary was elected or Trump or Bernie Sanders or whoever… The system is it going to change.

Labor has a cost, and a value. If you don't have the ability to work anything but a cash register, well, sorry, you can't afford a lambo. Society has to be functional and ethical if it is to have any standing, and capitalist liberal democracies are the most functional and the most ethical societies we have ever observed, and continue to increase the living standards for everyone, including the poor and people not even in the capitalist liberal democracies.

Unfortunately what you fail to realise is that in reality there are limits to what we have and can produce. Thus, there must be rationing. How is it to be done? In your system, there is someone who chooses. Who lives and who dies, even, in the case of healthcare. Who has and has not might be more apt. That person is a human being, ultimately corruptable. In a capitalist society, that choice is based upon the ability of the person to prove their merit through acquisition of money.

You're all idiots.

The reason we raise wages is twofold.

First, because it counteracts inflation. As the economy continues to grow, more money goes into circulation, which reduces it's value. Every year however much money you have becomes slightly less valuable (this is why it's important to invest it and try to grow it, because you can't just sit on it; like a car, it depreciates).

Secondly, because due in part to the above and due in part to a gorillion other factors, the cost of living goes up. If your wages don't outpace your cost of living, CONGRATULATIONS! You're in poverty.

Massive wage growth for the lower classes was one of the big factors that fueled the economic boom of the 50s. Conversely, the reason we had suck a limp-dick recovery from the 2008 recession was because wages didn't really go up, even though the GDP started growing again.

The real measure of economic success is the spending power of the average American citizen. Between debts, wages, and cost of living, it's been steadily shrinking for half a century.

NO, instead you should force the banks to stop monpolizing the land. The (((banks))) are buying it cheap and then selling it at millions of dollars that no one but the giga kike money printers can afford. Combine that with falling wages and no one can afford to even grow their own food. Why you ask? Because they can't buy land which the kikes/banks monopolize to artificially increase the price even though there is so much unused, bank owned, monopolized, and useful land that people could grow their own food on and start buisnesses with the excess productivity from having food reserves.

Why should I be dependent on someone who prints labour value from thin air and makes my labour worthless? Why can't I depend on myself for everything like growing food or potting water? Is it perhaps because (((they))) just want everyone (((they))) don't like to die?

'The Cat Who Came For Christmas' by author Cleveland Amory.

Don't let the cover fool you.

This is an amazing read. Cleveland Amory had never given any thought to animals or heard of the term 'animal rights' before, but one day he was about to walk out of NYC brownstone, and when he opened his front door there was a cat standing outside waiting for him.

Without any hesitation, the cat marched into Cleveland apartment, and threw himself down on the sofa and 'made himself at home'.

Cleveland was amazed at the audacity of this cat, who acted so naturally, as if he had been there forever. The cat never left…

He became such a valuable important part of Cleveland Amory life, and the author actually changed his life, carefully studying and examining the cat's behavior and opening his eyes to a world he had never even given any thought to before….

Animal rights……

Cleveland Amory went on to write more books about the cat, and he became very involved in the animal rights movement, a regular on TV talk shows like Johnny Carson, and travel the world to try to help raise public awareness about animal rights issues, like with elephants for example…

And it all started with this cat who walked in the door and made himself at home.

The book is really really good.

Trust me, you are wrong there.

Another one gone for me. Kitty-corner neighbor got hit by a bus drunk off her ass on her way to my house. Been a rough last few years. Angry tonight. Want to drink. Probably will. WTF? Why is my life so fucked up? My kids don't deserve this.

YOU ARE WRONG.

Getting laid is beside the point.

Probabably a good idea.

here's the answer: right now, within a 1 mile radius of you, there are probably at least 150 cats and kittens who are hungry. I say go to the store and get a large bag of kitten food (adults will eat it to of course) and let some of that good fortune trickle down to them….

The problem with this is that the system, being corruptable, is vulnerable to being manipulated to reward things besides merit. You end up witha system where people are rewarded for playing the system and not for creating value.

When I was 15, I was absolutely positive I'd never live to be 18. I was burning my candle so hard with wanton excess, that the likelihood of making it to 18 seemed improbable at best.

that line in the Sand kept being moved forward, never live to see 21, 30, 40, etc
