Contrary to popular belief, wage is actually a function of the supply and demand curve, not standard of living or inflation. The reason for this is simple: labor is worth nothing in regards to value, because value is subjective (comes from the worth the individual mind assigns to an object, not any inherent property of the object itself). The second point is that each individual can only produce up to a fixed amount of goods/services, regardless of pay. I could pay someone $200/hr to make pencils, but that doesn't mean they'll be able to produce enough pencils to actually warrant that wage rate. Now say them minimum wage is $7.00 an hour, but a person is only capable of producing goods/services equivalent to $6.00 an hour. The smart employer won't hire that guy, because he would be losing money by paying someone more than they can actually produce. As such, with minimum wage in place, anyone who is unable to produce up to said minimum wage is essentially barred from working. This is why there are a high number of elderly and disabled people who are homeless, because while they still may be able to do something useful, they are not capable of producing up to the minimum wage.

TL;DR: While minimum wage seems like a 'morally just' public policy, it actually prevents those most in need of income from making money.

Jon Stewart talks about how the minimum wage should be raised, but he has unpaid interns. Hypocrite
User avatar #90 to #88 - rangerofthesea (02/02/2014) [-]
interns arent there for money, they are there for valuable experience...and when you tell people that you were the intern of jon stewart for 2 years people notice that...and will give you a shot over someone who worked fast food for two years

I hate people who think that minimum wage should be a large amount. It's supposed to be a low amount, it's supposed to be the absolute lowest sum of money that can allow you to not starve to death on a street corner. Here's a quick list of some things you should not be buying if you're on absolute minimum wage and have no other source of income: mobile phones, alcohol and cigarettes, designer clothing, video games, a pet.

It may sound harsh, but minimum wage is not there to entitle you to luxuries.

The problem is, adults who have done nothing in life are expecting to make bank for doing jobs teenagers in high school are meant to be doing, and they're too ******* stupid to realize that if you raise min wage everything will be more expensive because big corporations like Wal mart have to pay retards hundreds of millions more to do simple work

Listen you 12 year old **** wits. If you have millions of minimum wage jobs that don't cover the cost of living what is the point of working ? if you can't pay rent and buy food with your job it is essentially slavery. If you need 2-3 jobs just to get buy every minimum wage person might as well just be on welfare. plus since a lot of minimum wage people need food stamps and stuff which comes from tax money so now the tax payers have to pay to keep minimum wage people alive and giant corporations make a larger profit by paying people much less then they ethically and logically should by pushing the cost of the reduced salaries to the tax payers.


Now stop riding corporate dick like a cheap whore you retards.

This entire debate boils down to this: What is the minimum a person deserves, despite having put in little or no effort?

We live in a society where advertisers have consistently used the "you deserve it" mentality to trick us into buying **** we don't need. The result? A society that thinks they deserve everything.

Not all of us do. I'll always try and do the best job I possibly can in whatever I'm asked to do. There's no point doing a ****** job all the time because you'll never get anywhere in life with that attitude.

God forbid we pay our C.E.O's tens of millions of dollars instead of hundreds of millions of dollars so other people can have a fair chance in life...

MFW fast food workers think their ****** entry level job should pay them enough to support a family.

"Instead of working hard and getting a better job to accommodate my new responsibilities, I'll just demand my current high school diploma job give me more money! I won't have to do a thing!"
Good work Tyrone.
#171 to #156 - inept (02/02/2014) [-]
Has it ever occurred to you that there might not be enough well paying jobs for everyone? and that not everyone expects enough to provide for a family? I think most people just want enough out of a basic job to take care of themselves and in England at least (and probably America) minimum wage doesn't cut it.

im currently working to raise my level so i cant login but i want to take the opposite side. one reason i really hate jon stewart and stephen colbert is they never make any real arguments supporting liberal **** . all they do is repeat or mock what someone says in a weird voice or with some slick comment.

Stephen colbert is actually everything you hate about a republican. he's exactly like republicans trying to gain power.

And in terms of this she makes a valid point. you work minimum wage because its supposed to be a temporary job or something. But people who drop out of highschool or slack off in college find its their only avenue and make it permanent. that is not our fault. they should **** off and accept what hey are given they are given a lot more than a lot of countries already. thats why we HAVE to outsource or else businesses would dtake with the labor cost
