I hear so many people cheering about the wage increase. But it seems they don’t consider the down side.
How many people will lose their jobs because companies can’t afford the huge pay hike? Have any of you seen how McDonalds is phasing out workers and putting machines in to take your order and pay for it?
Machines don’t call in sick, don’t ask for wages, don’t need health insurance or paid vacations.
Also, costs of making products will increase. Who do you think will end up paying for those cost increases? Yup, the public.
I’m not against pay increases, don’t misunderstand me. But doing it artificially has too many problems.
At least that’s how I see it.
What are your views?

I researched this awhile back when it was done somewhere in Washington. Employees were not happy. Some of them lost their job and others lost a lot of "perks" previously paid for by the company (free parking, cafe food, etc.). That left an impact on me that people who were at first ecstatic to get a raise were later upset.

It reminds me of people all hyped up over places like Germany offering free healthcare and education while not comprehending that the tax rate is much higher. If you understand that, and you are OK with it, sweet! But if you think those perks are not somehow paid for by the people, I feel you're mistaken.

And by the way, I think that is how it should be. Meaning, I think Healthcare and Education should be free and we should all pay more in taxes to pay for it. I believe that puts every individual in a vested interest in the Country they reside in.

As for raising the minimum wage to $15 in 2025, I feel that is a mistake. People in technology profession (Hello!) will prosper because it will be them (HI!) who are making the automated programs and machines that replace the menial jobs that people feel they need to support 3 kids with.

It will also damage our youth as well. Youth working those jobs helps prepare them for larger roles in life as they go job to job figuring out their niche.

We have a greed problem with executives in America who feel even though we have millions of homeless people and starving children that they need four houses, ten cars and 43 bathrooms in their "get-a-way" home.

The problem is that raising the minimum wage doesn't just raise the wage for the bottom end, it raises the cost of labor overall. Many union contracts are predicated on minimum wage as an accelerator or incremental bump. So as senior guys get more expensive, either they get bumped (or replace by automation) OR junior guys just aren't hired as they will farm the jobs out to Mexico.

With all due respect, just the opposite is true, you don't value something you don't have to pay for. I want to take care of my family's healthcare and have choices to do so. I don't want to pay for anyone else's (other than veterans), especially when they dis-incentived to make healthy choices.
I especially don't want to pay for someone else's college. I (and my family) paid for mine and my kids. If some kid want to get a sociology degree from pubic state, he can pay for it, or that state can vote to pay for it. I don't want to. If the education is such a great value, let the school lend them the money. I don't feel like paying for tenured professor who don't do jack other than indoctrinate kids.

But, whatever. People are stuck to their political lines of thinking and I'm not going to convince anybody of anything. I just feel particularly insulted when people of a much older age category don't acknowledge how they were making comparatively more, with a much lower cost of living when they were starting out in adulthood. I wouldn't take those benefits away from them, I'd just ask they not look at me like I'm crazy or "asking for handouts" or "don't understand the real world" if I suggest that maybe we deserve a similar amount of money adjusted for inflation and cost as living as they did when they were starting out.

Dear Youngins,
  1. My wife and I had a 8% mortgage rate on our first house. We were both working and barely could make ends meet. So the good old days of everything being cheap, may not exactly be the case. Additionally since we couldn't afford the down payment so we had to pay PMI.
  2. Nevertheless big P, you make a great point. My generation, and more specifically the more recent retirees, are pulling out more than they put in. Many are double dipping pensions. Far from social security being the safety net is was designed to be. People view it as an belittlement. The program was designed when life expectancy was 65, and benefits kicked in at....65. The program is broke. I know guys that have 3 pensions and still draw social security. It is sickening. There needs to be means testing for all benefits.

This thread has turned out even better then I hoped it would.
Every response has been well thought out and well stated.
My parents had a 2 story 4 bedroom house built in 1960 (with a 2 1/2 car garage) on a corner lot for $20 thousand dollars. I can’t imagine what a house like that would cost brand new today.
I had my first job at age 15 and 10
Months in 1973 with a starting minimum wage of $1.45 an hour.
I left that job after a month for one that paid $1.60 an hour!
Beginning jobs(such as McDonalds) are not usually jobs that you have for life. If that IS your plan, you work your way up to management.
But $15 an hour for that kind of job? Wow. And my experience with workers in many low level jobs is, most don’t appreciate their jobs, show up when they feel like it, and treat customers like they are interrupting their day.
On the rare occasion when I see workers that go the extra mile, I make it a point to let their bosses know.
Most of the time, they only hear complaints.
You should see a young worker glow when they hear you tell their boss they did an extra good job.
A little thing like that can make a young workers day.

KRK your comment puzzles me a little bit. Why would people not be entitled to SS benefits? It's their money that the Feds have been able to use interest free for decades. They then dole it out with an eye dropper. If people took the money that they and their employers sink into SS they would have 3 or 4 times the money available (an exaggeration) when they get to retirement age. My employer lists me as an independent contractor (even though I would never pass the IRS test for an I.C.) so he doesn't pay anything into SS. I in turn have to pay both parts, the employee and employer's portions.

As for $15 /hr. Illinois is one of the bluest states and running as fast as it can to get to top of blueness. It already been approved here. Several small town business owners in my town sold and moved away. Others are already down sizing long before the rate kicks in.

They still deserve what was promised to them for the money they’ve put in.

Partially agree. If this is a government fund to help the fatherless, motherless kids, and destitute in retirement. I agree. But if I have 10mm in trust fund, and have put $50k into the system, I shouldn't receive $2k/month for as long as I live after i reach 65. Its moronic. It can't mathematically function. And it is not fair to ask me or you to pay for such a person.
Quote:

Still wouldn’t be able to afford that with three kids and one parent in school. I too had to deal with PMI. But again, it’s more to point out cost of living differences.

When I compare current rent of the place I rented, assuming it has been maintained, it is actually less, as percentage of income relative to the starting salaries of kids coming out of undergraduate programs with business degrees. Further, when I look at how technology has improved the overall economy, from transportation to entertainment, it is hard for me to agree that people have a lower standard of living.
Quote:

I really don’t know where you people find all these minimum wage workers that treat you like dirt. I’ve heard from multiple sources that Milwaukee has one of the crappiest service industry worker pool in the Midwest and yet with like two exceptions over two years the worst I ever get is a purely robotic employee that is just going through the motions but still doing their job. Had one last at Michaels of all places get shitty with my wife once and beyond that, nada. And it’s not like I live in a particularly great area either. Then again I don’t have any expectation that service industry workers convince me that they love their jobs or are personally excited to see me. I sure as hell wouldn’t be, I expect the relationship to be transactional and at a minimum, not unkind.

AWESOME points. This, however has less to do with the minimum wage, and has more to do with supply and demand, good and bad management, and an evolving market.
  • Why do you think retail is dying? A primary reason is crappy service. Your experience with Michaels, my wife experience yesterday at a bank...business owners get what they pay for. In your example of Michael, ownership pays through the ass for a lease, invests in inventory and then scrimps on labor. Customers get dissatisfied and buy on Amazon. The store goes broke, and management and ownership lose. Most business owners are penny wise and pound foolish. But that their issue, not my issue. Nor should the government involved.
  • Contrast that with the service you get at Chic-fil-a (sp?) Let's stay off the religious aspect....They pay minimum wage, but have college tuition help, meals, and other benefits. The give raises for good performance, etc. But if an employee has a crappy attitude, they are gone. Contrast their level of service with most Burger Kings. Chic-fil-a ownership and management is smart.
  • After paying for and earning a 4 year undergraduate degree, I had a minimum wage opportunity after an on campus interview. I derisively asked the interviewer why in the world I would take the job, to which he replied "Because I can get people at that price, and if you are any good, you will be making far more than that in the near future".
Also, let's be intellectually honest about who is paying. When anyone says "the goverment should pay" that should mean to all of us "YOU SHOULD PAY" (unless of course, you don't or don't play to pay taxes which is what people who have already made their money can do) I find it offensive and confiscatory when the answer to every societal problem is to tax the person who wants to get rich at a rate higher than everyone else pays. If I work hard, take changes and make money, then I should enjoy the fruits of my labor. The federal government, other than the powers enumerated in the Constitution, should not ask me to pay a higher percentage of what I earn than anybody else. Now if I choose to live in a state that want to pay for everyone education, healthcare, cars, food, phone, and living quarters.....and I choose to have my ass taxed off by living there....great.

First, I start with the idea that social security, flawed from inception, at this point, for the most part a Ponzi scheme. The elements of the program which take care of motherless/fatherless and destitute poor are great. IMO it should not be a government program, but nevertheless.
  • The program was initially conceived to take care of the destitute....great.
  • Now it is a gamed ponzi scheme. They young are paying for the old. By the time the young get there, it will be gone.
  • Congress, you can guess which party lead the charge, put the funds OUT of the trust fund into the general budget...so there IS NO TRUST FUND. Your contributions went to pay for wars, bridges, planned parenthood and whatever else was politically expedient.
  • Now, to my position in your case...I believe that if you are below a certain level of wealth and income, you should receive SS. But, above a certain point, no. It was/is an insurance program. Accordingly, mathematically everyone CAN'T pay for the benefits of those who can't contribute AND still get all their money out.

Ah Illinois, a cess-pool and the most corrupt state in the Union. Get ready, you Badgers will be paying their state and local pensions very soon. I know a guy who has 3 state pension....thats right 3. And did you know an Illinois teacher any many administrator can work for 10-20 years and then retire at 80% HIS LAST YEARS PAY. BOHICA baby because when they declare themselves insolvent and a certain party controls the Congress and the White House, you and I will be paying for all of those pensions.

No one (not an exaggeration) thought I'd go to college. When I did, I was asked how I got such good grades but poor grades in High School? In College they challenged me and I was paying i think $180 per hour!! In High School I would read the next question to get the answer to the one previous and it was free.

So, maybe you have a point there. I do feel getting an education shouldn't put you into debt for decades.

So it boils down to value i.e. cost/benefit.

I have a very good friend, more like a brother who is a plumber. He started out as a laborer and is fully vested in their pension plan. Now he is fully vested in the pension plan of the plumbers union. He makes damn good money and will retire well. He worked his ass of and he earned it. He never went to college. He didn't take a loan for a four year frolic in order to find himself. He sacrificed.

His income suffered in two instances as he went through apprenticeship programs (which I think of as the blue collar university) He took the risk to forego income for the long-term opportunity. it worked because he worked.

Not everyone should go to a four year university. I did and to be honest there were about 10 courses worth taking. The rest were a waste of time and money.

As for the cost of college, the reason it costs so much is that colleges benefit by having it cost so much. Its a racquet. The federal government (i.e. YOU AND I) lend money so that poor saps can overpay for an over-priced education. Meanwhile the universities have billion dollar endowments and tenured professors many of whom do jack squat (and please, my sister was a tenured professor at a state university so I know how goofed up that system is as well.)

If their degree as so damn good and have so much value, why don't THEY, the Universities make the loans to kids and let THEM be responsible for collecting. WHY DO WE HAVE TO BE INVOLVED?!?!?

The point is MOST DEGREES ARE NOT WORTH THE MONEY!!!!

In life, choices matter. No one told you to have six kids out of wedlock. No one told you to do drugs. And no one forced someone to go to school.

Further, no one forced someone into a major like sociology, anthropology, comparative Aztec religions, earth sciences, music, or literature. THAT WAS A CHOICE. If the person who chose to incur the debt can't pay it, because the degree isn't worth it....THAT IS NO MY PROBLEM.

If you let the market address the problem, which it partially is....you will have fewer people incurring debt for bullshit degrees from crappy schools.

If however, you screw with market by having the government provide easy access to student loans, you will make more money available so that kids can make stupid choices. Those choices will never make monetary sense, and never pay off. Meanwhile, we will have more public employees who are part of a system of providing worthless degrees making more money with more retirement benefits.

Per News Reports....Hilarious
Quote:

Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders announced this weekend he will cut staffers' hours so that they can effectively be paid a $15-an-hour minimum wage, prompting mockery from critics who say the move is more evidence that Sanders' plan to raise the national minimum wage is hypocritical and would only lead to less work and more unemployment....

Commentary follows:
Quote:

"This situation is an instructive example of the downside of more than doubling the minimum wage," wrote The Blaze's Aaron Colen. "Companies don't just suddenly get more money to pay employees. They have to make tough decisions; usually either cutting hours, or worse, cutting staff."

First, as I said earlier, retail workers (not all of course) have bad attitudes. 2 days ago my wife was treated snotty at our local Kwik Trip. Had I been there and seen that, I would have gone midevil on his ass. There is NO excuse to treat a good natured customer like that. At the end he said “you don’t have to come here anymore”.
Chic filA was mentioned here. THEY know how to treat their customers AND employees. And they jettison any workers that have bad attitudes.

Another point that was made (by Zero, I think?) was about the company big wigs making ridiculous wages. That ALSO is a big thing that is sooo wrong.
I can understand a decent wage for a CEO, but do they really need millions while their employees get chicken feed? There is such a disconnect between big wigs and hourly employees. If you don’t think so, just watch a few “undercover boss” TV shows.
And....I can’t help but add this....Bernie Sanders, EVERY TIME I see him, I expect to hear “Hey! You kids GET OFF MY LAWN!!!”😂

Many CEO's are overpaid....but who is to say which, and by how much?

If I am a CEO, I work for shareholders....sorry, not employees. If a CEO can increase the market capitalization of his company by $1bb, he is worth $50mm....and I am not. His pay does not mean I am worth any more or any less. A CEO needs to balance the benefit of having good employees (and they are HUGE) with the cost of having crappy ones.

The real problem is short term stock incentives for CEOs incentivize them the make short term decisions, i.e. cut costs and, short-term drive the stock price up. If there were LONGER term incentives, they would, because of the cost benefit analysis, invest more in employees, and have longer-term incentives for employees as well ESOP's, Profit Sharing, etc.

The economics and politics of envyare never good. I don't like Jeff Bezos' politics but the SOB built a awesome company and is worth every nickel he makes. If I think he is overpaid, I can stop buying on Amazon, and make sure I don't use AWS, or start a competitor.

Restaurants Sweeten Pay and Perks to Find Scarce Workers
Quit rate among food workers is higher than ever, forcing executives to get creative
By Heather Haddon July 21, 2019 7:27 pm ET

https://www.wsj.com/arti...lts&page=1&pos=7 

Restaurants are sweetening pay packages and adding perks like more scheduling flexibility to attract and retain workers in the tightest job market in decades.

Waiting tables and operating deep-fryers has long been some of the lowest-paid work in the U.S., and a rite of passage for students during the summer. This year, with unemployment at the lowest level in decades, restaurants are finding fewer students and lower-skilled workers willing to take those jobs.

“I would describe working in restaurants as robotic,” said Aleena Solomon, a 17-year-old high-school student from Columbus, Ohio. Last summer she worked as a restaurant hostess, and this summer she was offered a job with Noodle & Co. She decided to take a paid internship with her aunt at a branding agency instead.

Restaurants are also spending more on bonuses and changing payment practices. McDonald’s Corp. said it is using $150 million recouped from federal tax-code changes to expand its offering to pay for college scholarships for employees and their families.
“That is a huge recruiting piece for us,” said Melissa Kersey, McDonald’s U.S. chief people officer.

More than 7.5 million restaurant and hotel workers quit last year, the most since the Bureau of Labor Statistics began releasing that metric in 2001. Around 10.7 million food-service and hotel workers were hired last year, but there were an average of nearly 900,000 job openings in the restaurants and accommodation sector in each month of last year, a record, federal figures show. And quit rates this year are even higher.

“The old way of thinking that people will work in any conditions to get a minimum wage just doesn’t work anymore,” said Luke Fryer, owner of a Manhattan burger restaurant and a former Burger King franchisee in Australia, who started the Harri restaurant workforce management site after struggling to hire and retain workers.

A recent Harri survey of restaurant employers found that 85% reported half their staff turning over annually on average, incurring thousands of dollars in costs.

Many restaurants are raising pay, of their own volition or by law. Nearly two dozen states and some big cities have raised minimum wages this year. U.S. hourly restaurant pay was $14.79 in May, the highest since that survey began in 2006, according to BLS figures that typically include tips. The National Restaurant Association predicts restaurant wages will rise 4.7% on average this year, outpacing total private-sector growth of 3.3%.

Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. last month instituted performance bonuses of a week’s pay for restaurant workers who help hit quarterly sales targets and other goals. Chipotle also expanded tuition-reimbursement earlier this year and extended some education benefits to employees’ family members. Chief People Officer Marissa Andrada said Chipotle has directed managers to discuss career development in their quarterly performance reviews for restaurant workers.

“It’s showing an interest in people beyond this hourly job they have,” Ms. Andrada said.
Checkers Drive-In Restaurants Inc. recently started giving all employees the option of receiving their pay in more regular increments than bimonthly checks, said Marna Killian, a human-resources executive at the Tampa, Fla.-based chain’s parent company.
She said such sweeteners at its Checkers and Rally’s restaurants are necessary to compete with employers including Amazon.com Inc., which raised its minimum wage to $15 an hour last year. The federal minimum wage is $7.25. Checkers said its lowest hourly wages vary regionally and that the company has raised pay in places where competition is particularly intense.

“Amazon pays $15, and you are not in a hot, 900-square-foot box,” Ms. Killian said, referring to a fast-food restaurant. “Our jobs are hard.”

Some restaurants are devising other incentives to boost retention and staff satisfaction.
Noodles & Co. recently enhanced its parental-leave policies, while Mighty Quinn’s BBQ in New York is trying to bolster loyalty in its employees by rewarding top performers with manning the company’s food booth at concerts, co-founder Micha Magid said.
“You can go get a paycheck anywhere,” said Mr. Magid, who has hired about 25 workers so far this summer, up around 20% from last year.

Dave & Buster’s Entertainment Inc., meanwhile, is offering prizes to workers who sell more menu specials or game cards at the video-arcade chain.

And franchisees of chains including Applebee’s and Burger King have hired app developer ShiftOne to create an incentive system with the feel of a videogame that gives rewards such as free meals and more scheduling flexibility to employees who receive strong satisfaction scores from customers they serve, the tech company said.

“They want to have fun,” ShiftOne President Ashish Gambhir said.

That's a pretty weird way of comparing the two. Where are you getting the figures for average starting salaries for people coming out of undergrad programs with business degrees, and how is that average salary determined?

Sorry I should have been more clear on my methodology. I took the average starting salary from where I graduated (which is a bit light as a business major will make more than a liberal arts major)

On the technology angle, when you (I'm assuming, no clue how old you are but I'm 32) and I were getting out of college, internet and a cellphone were not basically mandatory things you needed if you wanted to function in the world and apply for jobs.

I am old, 63. True the internet and a cell phone are necessary, but they enable you to have a much higher quality of life: entertainment (music, books, movies), communication (it was a special thing to be able to talk with friends and parents who weren't local) If your grandparents are alive ask them how a lower level income person lives NOW versus how lower level income persons lived when they were younger.

Some retail chains and food service joints invested heavily decades ago to buy up property (and actually have made a ton of money off of leasing properties themselves) and don't have magically better employees just because they own the property and aren't shelling out tons more over the long term on leases.

The point I was trying to make (obviously poorly) was that even though they spent millions on real estate, they are squandering it by NOT paying up for good labor. They were/are dumb.

For a corporation paying their employees an average income of $40,000, somehow I don't think it's crazy to expect that corporation to pay a little bit more of an effective tax rate than their average employee. Then again, you seem to be not a fan of progressive tax which... Not sure what to say about that on an economic level. You're an extreme outlier, and even the vast majority of conservatives acknowledge this is necessary


  • I don't think corporations should be taxed at all. Its double taxation. People and pension funds own corporations. It raises the cost of capital
  • I don't think there should be an income tax at all. In this I agree with the founding fathers. If there is one, everyone over the poverty level should pay the same rate. And if there is a corporate tax, it should be passed though as a tax deduction pro rata, to owners..
  • I think revenue should come from use taxes, VAT, tolls, license fees, and property taxes at a state level.
  • Also, if there is an income tax, for every $10,000 one pays in taxes, one should get an extra vote.

Zero2Cool (21-Sep) : @TomPelissero #Packers C Corey Linsley left Sunday’s win after spraining the thumb on his snapping hand, source said. Should be OK moving forward, but one more thing for Aaron Rodgers’ banged-up line
