I agree.
I believe there are few people, very few, who deserve every penny company can throw at them. For example Steve Jobs, he came to company that was about to close, with stock trading at barely few thousand a day for peanuts and made from it world's most valuable tech company. now he deserves millions.
But some manager that just does what 1000 others can do, he should be making a good decent wage, not six and seven figure one.

Exactly. As much as I hate Steve Jobs, and as much as he was a dick, there's no denying that he built a company from the ground, and yeah, he went into the same field as Bill Gates, but he did a method so different it might as well have been a whole different product. So yeah, I agree with you on that. But people like the current CEO of Wal Mart just sicken me. The founder was great, but his daughter is just.. Ugh.

If corporate jobs didn't pay so much, too. I mean, not saying we should cripple the management side of business, because all the paperwork and communications are incredibly important, but it makes no sense for one man to get six figures for talking to people while the people who keep the company running on its most base level are hardly getting twenty bucks.

15 an hour is what is considered a "living wage" meaning a family of four with two people making 15 an hour can be considered a middle class family and could afford health care, house ownership and base necessities without need of incuring large debt.
15 an hour is what unions are asking for, they will never get it, but they hope they can arrange 11 or 12 an hour.
Also paramedic data is a complete lie. Median salary for paramedic is $39.000 while low 5% make $31k.
User avatar #84 - sketchysketchist (09/25/2013) [-]
Dude, I'm sorry to say this but flipping burgers shouldn't even be a job that helps you raise a family.
Rather than pay people more to do a job anyone can do, why not tell them to get a real job.
There's like an assload of jobs for everyone who majors with anything that isn't philosophy and any art degree.
Fuck, you can go to community college and learn how to cut hair and slowly work your way up to making a business.
It's not hard, it just takes a lot of time. That's why people need to go in that direction before they decide to have get married and have 2 kids with a low salary.
Just a thought.
#87 - angelusprimus (09/25/2013) [-]
Unemployment is at 7.5% there isn't that many jobs available.
And most of this people are people in their fourties and fifties that worked in factories and production companies that up and went to china and mexico.
There are few enough jobs for people in their twenties and trust me there are practically NO jobs for a 52 year old machinist.
Production jobs are gone, service jobs are rising. There is nothing wrong with flipping burgers if it puts food on your table and lets oyu keep your house.
User avatar #89 - sketchysketchist (09/25/2013) [-]
Yes, but it's a low risk job that requires low skill.
Demanding a hirer paycheck for it is ridiculous.
The only way I can agree with that is if they would raise pay rates for everyone.
Especially since everyone keeps saying the minimum wage should be closer to $20 thanks to inflation.
Otherwise, giving them more money makes it seem like being an engineer/police officer/doctor/whatever means not much.
#90 - angelusprimus (09/25/2013) [-]
They actually are, they want to start a general raising of salaries in service industry (and that's not just fast food workers, that's store workers, drivers etc.) and try to make service jobs middle class jobs.
If you have a solid base of middle class jobs, you have a solid base of people who spend more, and then everyone's pay goes up.
Main argument against is "If we do that employment will slow down". So what they are telling us is "If you want more decent jobs, there will be less crappy ones"
I'm ok with that.
User avatar #103 - sketchysketchist (09/25/2013) [-]
That actually makes sense.
If it's a sure thing, nothing's stopping the government from raising their pay.
Especially since most of those jobs usually trick workers out of getting paid for all their work. Might as well pay them more.
User avatar #69 - mrtwilightsparkle (09/25/2013) [-]
Oh, okay. That actually makes sense to ask for 15, even though they won't get it, because most fast food people have to work 2-3 jobs anyways. However, 11 or 12 would allow you to work two jobs and live more comfortably. $25-30 an hour makes for a pretty decent lifestyle, if you don't mind the hard work.

Others like myself only vote for 3rd party candidates. The system appears to be broken, and I see the two major parties as two sides of the same coin. Their only real difference is in marketing, and choice all but illusion. Unfortunately, 3rd parties have been effectively prevented from running for office.

When you say "it would have been pretty obvious to just about everyone" and follow that up with "except the lower classes, who make up about 50% of our country", you do realize that you're either implying that you lack comprehension of what percentages mean, or that you see the lower classes (y'know, those peons who take out your trash, police crime, and essentially do everything necessary for a country to function) as beneath your consideration. Either of which does not inspire one to have faith in your opinion

I was talking about the dams that are already there. I live in Washington state where we have some of the best energy prices in the country because of all the dams here. The energy situation the entire world is facing depresses me greatly and as an avid gamer/internet user I know I am a part of the problem.

So much of our power is made by burning coal that anything else is hailed as a great clean alternative. Sadly everything has its consequences. Wind farms are dangerous to birds, loud and unpredictable. Solar panels require toxic chemicals to make and it is very difficult to store the energy produced by them. And then dams change the landscape and make it impassable for the fish to spawn upstream.

Sometimes our world sucks.

Yeah, but you always go with the lesser of the evils. In my opinion, Hydropower and Nuclear Power are the way to go. Hydroelectricity has a much less permanent effect on the environment and creates whole new ecosystems for other animals, while still being an efficient form of electricity. Nuclear Power has next to no repercussions except the obvious issue of where to put the waste, but there are multiple plans for that. There really is no energy crisis, anywhere in the world, when you get past the same uninformed people suffering from an unreasonable paranoia.

They can afford it because of hydro resources and because of interconnection with powerful systems, such as Nordic and German, which provide import when needed, like when water levels are low. Albanian system relies heavily on hydro power and that's why they have power shortages during dry and long summers.

While nice on paper dams are bad for the environment. They block salmon runs and divert water from its natural course. So many dams don't even have salmon ladders so the fish can't get to their natural spawning grounds.

They are just fish though. Its not like they matter or anything.
User avatar #131 - mrtwilightsparkle (09/23/2013) [-]
Usually when people talk about hydroelectricity it's converting dams that are already there. And there are plenty of places where a dam creates flood plains, but causes no lasting damage to the environment. Take Ohio, for example, where we destroy our own cities to make lakes as opposed to nature.

on the other hand side, i think, and know from experience, that a toothache can be really unbearable and treatment at the dentist is likewise painful, and for the piercing you need to drill a frickin' hole through it, which i assume would be a ohgodicanttakeitanymore/10 on the pain scale
