  • Can we trade in Dimon for this Simon fellow? Maybe he won't threaten to leave the Democratic Party if a Sanders type is nominated.
  • Who cares what Simon says?

  • But what does Jamil Dimond have to say about this?

    There is at least one company out there that has figured it out.  Anything less than this is exploitation and theft.
  • "The Fed has it backwards. Wage increases have not caused prices to rise. Price increases have caused real wages (what wages can actually purchase) to fall. Prices are increasing at the rate of 6.8% annually but wages are growing only between 3-4%.

    [...]

    Corporate profits are at a record high. If corporations faced tough competition, they would not pass those wage increases on to customers in the form of higher prices. They'd absorb them and cut their profits.
    But they don't have to do this because most industries are now oligopolies composed of a handful of major producers that coordinate price increases.

    Yes, employers have felt compelled to raise nominal wages to keep and attract workers. But that's only because employers cannot find and keep workers at the lower nominal wages they'd been offering. They would have no problem finding and retaining workers if they raised wages in real terms - that is, over the rate of inflation they themselves are creating."

    Let me guess:  they contract out things like custodian/janitor, phone reps, etc.


    If so,

    Pretty easy to have a high minimum pay  when you only hire positions that pay well to begin with.

    Why don't you go figure it out instead of writing really obvious, but uselessly speculative, posts on the internet?

    did an econ book hit you over the head once, and now you are a Master of Business?  Do you have any idea how easy it is to speculate about stuff on the internet?  doesn't require any intelligence at all.

    Businesses paying respectable wages just isn't possible! Someone has to be the wage slave!

    Huh, I was told I wasn't allowed to use that anymore. Something about it being a gay slur.
  • Giving employees raises is the best and easiest way, at this point, to keep the good times rolling. And by employees, I mean lower level management and below.

    Companies with huge piles of cash in particular should not be trying to invest in new business lines that they have no real long term interest in. And dividends are taxed twice. Give it to employees. Maybe even just some kind of bonus to avoid boosting payroll taxes, etc.

    Then why don't you go out and start your own business and show them how it's done?

    of course it's possible, see pro sports for example.  However, if those teams also had to actually employ the concession workers themselves  instead of contracting the work out, you would see the average and min salaries plummet.  It's the payroll marketing version of an accounting trick or tax write off.

    The janitor makes 70k/year. It was the center of his Twitter declaration years ago when he started to doing this. Everyone said he'd fail inside of a year. This was 4 or 5 years ago, iirc, and hes going stronger now.

    Ok, now move the goalposts to defend your assertion.

    If they're currently fully staffed for janitor(s) why would they advertise for a janitor position? Much in the same way they're not advertising for a CEO at the moment.
