Amazon made record profits, Walmart made a killing… are they being forced to pay $4 more an hour per employee?

“Unfortunately, the real minimum wage is always zero, regardless of the laws, and that is the wage that many workers receive in the wake of the creation or escalation of a government-mandated minimum wage, because they lose their jobs or fail to find jobs when they enter the labor force. Making it illegal to pay less than a given amount does not make a worker’s productivity worth that amount—and, if it is not, that worker is unlikely to be employed.”

-Thomas Sowell

See people who believe in individual rights care about everyone but control freak collectivists only care for those they accept.

"Record profits" are more driven by inflation than actual sales.

#1 with a medium coke and fry at McDonald's will run you $8-9 these days and just a short ten years ago was more like $5. McDs werent being greedy and raised there prices so much. That is 100% the banks and the federal government debasing the dollar.

We should use the nordic model that leftists seem to always promote. Remove the minimum wage altogether

You said it yourself, Eric. There’s no reasoning with these people since no matter how destructive their policies are, they’re always right and the rest of us are always wrong.

I agree with you, but the way that article is worded is a little misleading… 25% of its stores; it's two stores. Not like they are coming in and shutting down a massive number of stores. One of the stores has always been on the verge of closing, even before the shutdown.That being said you can't jump up hundreds of peoples pay by that much and think that there are no repercussions

Had a friend reason the pipeline jobs as being temporary, so it was justified to save the planet.

I told her yeah, then they'll do the same thing overseas and good job throwing people in the streets during a "pandemic". Funny how they only think of COVID when it's convenient for them.

Work hours! We should be reducing work hours to get more people into the work force. Two employees working 3 days per week, total 6 days per week (Employee A does SUN-TUES, Employee B does WED-FRI; no work on Sabbath days). I understand the counter arguments, such as each employee being worth a mountain of paper work, but red tape should be reduced anyway.

As much as I would like to sit back, kick up my feet, and enjoy the show when they realize they got screwed…I can’t since we’re all being forced along for the ride thanks to their bad decision.

If your an advocate for higher minimum wages, you better have exceptional skill and work experience, because a lot of people are going to get laid off.

They're just idiots with the mentality of print more money guys, ignoring the fact that doing anything to the economy can drastically change it, especially for the people at the bottom.

So why aren't the people forced out of work to do their part heroes. So we are supposed to praise people who got the opportunity to work.

Thinking beyond the immediate is becoming a lost art. I think it has a correlation with people who were never held accountable for their actions by parents as kids.

The dollars are instantly devalued, there is no grace period when you can spend the "extra dollars" & get the value of what they used to be worth. Thank you commie teachers.

I've said it for years and so have other people. When you raise the minimum wage there will be three outcomes. Higher prices, employee cuts, or both. Oh but no, no, muh living wage. Muh need money to raise my five kids that I had irresponsibly.

How the hell is an inner city YMCA suppose to pay all their employees $15 an hour while still keeping all their programs that helps kids stay out of the street? Raising minimum wage is racist and harms black folks!
See what I did? I'm using their tactics against them. Except what I said actually has some truth to it.

This is a big reason I can never support the left, it is full of idealistic nonsense like this. They are too concerned with how things ought to be and not near concerned enough with how things actually are.

Record profits that go towards what? Maybe maintaining the buildings? Maybe paying delivery drivers? Shipping and handling? Health care?

Why not make the minimum wage 1million dollars an hour? It would be ridiculous right? Like government that lives off the private sector pretending they understand and can control how they work. What an increase in minimum wage really does is kill low end jobs because companies can't print money and they have to keep their costs the same!

It’s so funny how people complain about businesses making those adjusts (like the merging of positions, certain departments being dissolved and such) because the wages have been hiked up and don’t link it back to minimum wage being the cause.

Oh hi there 👋
It’s nice to meet you.
