“Some companies do pay their workers more money with great success, because.....

wait for it...

it's good business, and makes good economic sense.

Costco pays a lot more than Sam's Club.
The result?
Far less turnover.
Happy employees.
Low, low prices.
Happy customers.
Soaring profits.

...and what exactly do the middle class and working poor employees do with their higher wage? Simple, they spend it, driving up demand for middle class products. Companies then hire more workers as a last resort to keep up with growing demand. In other words, the companies are better off in the long run. Just look at Costco.”

“You see that as childish?

I see it as a major threat to our government and democracy.

Look to red states with majorities and super majorities and there's nothing childish about the way the GOP is jamming unconstitutional abortion and other laws through. They continually flaunt refusing to allow democrats even a voice in the process for the record as is supposed to take place.

Lottle kids don't scare me, this does when money backed groups are writing legislative plans for them that they don't have the brains to create themselves.”
