That's a nice way of saying you aren't worth more money.

I think it's important that poeple remember this:   
(for the most part) the rich don't give a 						****					 about you   
I repeat. The rich don't give a 						****					 about you   
   
Honestly. Most wealthy poeple just don't give a 						****					. Corporations often more so.    
The minimum wage of today is pretty 						******					 when compared to 75 or so years ago. I think the most modest estimates it at $10.00 adjusted for inflation though many argue as high as $15 or more. "BUT THAT'S STUPID!" "JOBS WILL BE CUT"   
   
Well yeah. Probably. See, lots of big businesses and corporations are greedy 						*************					. They couldn't stand loosing a few hundred million off of their billion dollar profit margins. And the stock holders? Would they stand for that?    
   
See. The economy is 						****					. Because people can't afford to shop in the malls they work in. What lots of idiots seem to forget is that > if people have more money the economy grows > if the economy grows businesses thrive more > which means that in the long run greedy bitch ass businesses will make balance out any loses with growth and potentially larger profit margins.   
   
But no. Lets suck the lower middle class dry. Lets create a world of 3rd class citizens. You guys watch that reality TV show "The Kids of Beverly Hills" or some 						****					.   
   
Do you really think that more than half of these haven't lost touch with reality? And live in la la land? Money, money, money. It's all about 						*******					 money. Sickening. But that's the kind of world we live. I studied economics, geopolitics, and monetary for enough years to know that. Every corruption, every misdeed, every 						*******					 pillar of our human society and future and progress... all comes down to one thing

See I don't hate the rich, because they're are two types of people:   
Those who profit   
and those who plunder

>Raise minimum wage
>Marginal employees who are not worth the new amount are laid off
>Consumers are denied that service (ableit small) that employee once provided
>Unemployment goes up
>Raising supply is usually accompanied by lower prices and greater demand
>This is not so since it is illegal for a worker to sell their labor for less than min wage
>Since more people are unemployed, demand for social programs go up.
>Social programs are either paid for by taxes or borrowing, which must be repaid by taxes
>Taxes discourage production because reward to risk ratio goes down
>Less new jobs are created
>Government creates make-work jobs that seek to provide employment rather than use resources to their fullest
>People see capitalism as a failed system and begin demanding for communism and fascism

The US is not a free market capitalistic country. It is a mixed economy where the capitalist portions are slowly not being able to continue to afford the socialist portions.

Don't take me serious on this, considering the ********* in the comments, but after reading each other's side on the issue, I'm still unfortunately siding with the guys that think rich people are assholes. I remember reading somewhere that a lot of rich people have the personality make up and sometimes the brain make up of schizophrenics and serial killers, sort of explaining why they can be greedy, not an excuse or anything just a possible reason. As for the comic however, there is a point to this, some businesses are making millions to billions of dollars and pretty much refuse to put even a little of it back. I'm not saying pay the workers more (unless they deserve it), I'm saying they should make their company as awesome as possible, like Google, or Costco. Google's home office in San Fran is amazing! Working there I bet feels better than home! Costo's CEO only takes home $500k the minimum wage of CEO's, not because he can't make money, just the opposite, he's one of the few people to pour money back into his business, allowing a lot his workers to be paid between $12-$21 an hour without raising in store prices or cutting back! I'm not saying the government should intervene and start telling these CEO's what to do, I'm saying rich people should encourage their fellow brethren to follow Costco's model or other successful company models that have people's respect instead of hatred, again this is just wishful thinking on my part, like I said don't take me seriously.

tl;dr I wish companies on their own could do more for their businesses whether that's a wage increase, updating their place of business, and take home the minimum wage for CEO's because it's still a lot of money.

"Hurr rich peepol have all the monee and dont spend it hurr"

Congrats. You have listened to that 1% ******** . The only reason it is "1%" is because it will qualify the business owner's business as a financial asset, since they technically own everything in that business; turning my dad's income from about $80,000 personal to $1,200,000 "total income" because he owns his small business.

But no, I'm sure those business owners are just sitting on money for no good God damn reason other than to be evil. Let's rip apart their stable and functional income or better yet give their business to The People's Republic of Hipsters and hang those business owners, and then putting art students up as the new company owners.

I want to argue and state my point but I'm no good at writing professionally in areas I'm not a professional about, especially when it comes to religious and economic and political discussions. So I'll just say it:

Rich people are often greedy. But they work hard to make it there. And they choose what to do with their money. If someone complains about their pay, they can quit or organize a boycott or something. But I feel that some rich people are good, and help others. UNPOPULAR OPINION ---> I think Mitt Romney is among the better of the rich people and helps out other companies.. so yeah. Many corporations can stand to give a raise to people, but there comes the age old argument- Everyone will want a raise. And I think it's true. Sometimes its greed or lack of kindness, but maybe some corporations want to make sure they are on a steady foot or make sure the person really deserves it first before they give out raises and other gifts.

And of course it's about money, that's what companies are about, except maybe charities and others. But life isn't centered about work or money, unless if you make it like that, and that's where greed comes in. Work hard, and some of your life will be focused on that as you try to move up, but don't make it #1 all your life.

I have nothing to say about minimum wage, as I know nothing about it.
I think Capitalism with some other elements mixed in is best, but all systems have problems due to humans. communism could be best, if we all were selfless, but that ain't gonna happen. I still know little on this subject.

If you wanna win an easy argument, then contradict me. But if you want to add a point to teach me and not to argue, then I'll welcome it and respect you more.

The company that owns my job (I am a CNA at an assisted living home) owns over 10 hotels in the surrounding area. We all make $8.50 an hour and can only get a 20 cent raise per year. Everybody has had their hours cut to 3 days a week so they don't have to give us benefits. All the employees are either under 26 or married and don't need insurance. The few that do need it are single mothers who have worked there for 5+ years. The company doesn't give a **** . They're now making $800 a month maximum for all the time and dedication they've given to this company.

I know Obamacare is to blame as well, but this company is ******* us over.

This reminds me of my work. I work at Walmart and we constantly hear "Walmart Cannot afford to pay for that"

We have had several broken machines in the back that needs replacing but we keep getting told that we cannot afford to replace the equipment. What we do instead is hire someone to fix it. This has cost us several times more than it would have to buy new equipment.

Moral of the story is: Walmart pays too much to repair equipment that needs replacing

Yeah lets pay everyone the same! Let's pay someone who flips burgers the same as the CEO of a large company because those greedy rich bastards can't relate with muh struggle.

I agree, let's just shove those whiny employees into prison camps if they give us any lip. They should be gracious for whatever we give them for their work, because every person but us is a commodity.

See how retarded you sound when you take an argument to absurdity?

Personally, I don't care a whole lot about this. There's a lot of pros and cons to both sides. How I see it though.
If you're rich, and you've earned that money through work and trial, then it's yours do whatever the **** you want with it. If you have a company, you can give raises or not, you can fix broken machines or not, it's your cash and it's your company.

If you worked hard to get anything in your life, no one has a right to tell you what you should do with it, not unless you're directly hurting someone. In this case, the worker is getting paid for his job, his job might not be worth a raise, he might just sit around sticking magnets on a fridge 9-5, it doesn't mean he should get a raise.
Even if your employees are working hard, it might now be in the interest of the company to give them the raise because the corporate world is a big world.
A thousand dollars is worth about five dollars in the higher end of keeping a business afloat.
