It turns out that Paula Deen may not have just been racist twice (first when she used the n-word to describe a black man who held her at gunpoint, then when she wanted tap-dancing black men dressed as slaves to cater a wedding).
I disagree witht his. Capitalism is pretty much set up to help the rich get richer and the poor to get poor. Sure, the promise that you'll be able to prosper is always present and if you have a special marketable skill or talent, you can do well. The problem is that the everyday average person that may not have anything especially unique but will go out there and work hard aren't guaranteed to get much of anything because everything is so driven by the people at the top.
Take something like Walmart for instance. The Walton family and everyone at the top of the food chain in that corporation is stupidly rich, yet the workers are so poorly paid that many of them require government assistance in addition to their work pay just to live. That's capitalism for you. Walmart is successful and the ones at the top see that, but none of that success is passed onto those on the lower rungs and they don't have to because in Capitalism it's all about making as much money as you can and minimizing your expenses, and to the people at the top, the workers are just an expense to be minimized.
bruh I get what you are saying
but the bolded isn't necessarily a bad thing when you consider the effectiveness of capitalism in creating wealth
people tend to think capitalism is a zero-sum game, but it isn't
there is always room for an economy to grow
as far as unrestrained capitalism creating a wealth divide...........that's more of an issue of dysfunctional govt and an ignorant voter base
the reason why many people disagree with capitalism is because they fail to embrace capitalism all the way by the way they extort handouts from the same dysfunctional govt
mofos fail to realize that policies like creating a minimum wage is what ultimately creates chronic unemployment and poor wages
people fail to acknowledge that outsourcing is by-product of socialist type policies, like-minimum wage
No fucking sign the bolded
The governments job is to ensure it's survival to do so it has to maximaze it's citizens chances for living a life worth living. We no longer live in the charles dickens era, society is far too complex to allow all business to act unrestrained . the social problems it would eventually create would cause mass suffering which would in turn bring revolution and more poverty and no government wants that.
the argument that you are making would be fine if we lived 150 years ago today we need the proper mix of capitalism and socialist policies. we need a minium wage
who is advocating for business to operate unrestrained?
it is obvious that you do not understand basic economic theory
too many mofos are overpaid in comparison to their skills............but what cats always expect is to get free shit from the govt, but they never want to acknowledge that somebody has to eventually pay for it
cats don't realize that business would actually have to pay higher than minimum wage to the best employees, and even the most undesirable employees would be able to find a job
what you are basically cosigning is continued unemployment
I'd give a basic class on supply and demand and the effect of a minimum wage, but most cats are too resistant to being open minded enough to learn something that might conflict with something they been brainwashed to believe in
no minimum wage is needed as long as unions are allowed to exist
I have an mba i know enough about economic theory and history to know that we need a minimum wage people have died for the right. Even if busisnesses would hire more people without the M.W these people would be paid so low that in effect all you would accomplish is the spreading deeper poverty to a wider group of people. plus there there greater issues than just economic ones do you know how many people are working 2 jobs and still can't make ends meet, you would make these people even poorer. Do you know the problems this creates? not having a minimum wage creates more problems than having one.
we got the m.w for a reason and it's more than just economic.
This is the problem with some women, they quick to leave when shit gets real, this economy is crazy and it's hard to find a job, let alone keep a job, u can do everything right and they would still fire u.
The vows say For Better or For Worst, For Rich or For Poor and these chicks only hear For Better and For Rich.
So ur husband takes care of the kids, cooks and cleans and u don't appreciate that, u look at the fact that he was out of work for 6 months and took that as a way to leave?
And stress does play a role when it comes to intimacy, ur stressing trying to figure out how to make ends meet because, u are the man of the house and ur wife is being selfish and thinking about sex not, "How Are We Going To Pay The Rent or Mortgage, Put Food in the House" naw, she worried bout herself.
