>>3773654>Not if we're talking about a minimum wage that effects all employed persons.
The fuck does this even really refer to. Just gotta respond. When we talk about "corporations," particularly in terms of economic policy, we're generally talking about entities like Wal-Mart that employ millions of people and cost the government billions of dollars. The entities that have billions of dollars to buy the agency the of the government and set policy in ways that help them. >If you increase the minimum wage that businesses are allowed to pay their employees
No they are required to pay their employees. >-especially if you couple that with tax increases
OH NO NOT TAX INCREASES NO ONLY CUTS. NO RAISES ONLY CUTS. OVER AND OVER ONLY CUTS NO RAISES THO ONLY CUTS. >they will, with 100% certainty, raise the prices of the goods or services
Yeah like when you tax them with tariffs. Or force Mexican laborers to unionize so they'll be more "competitive" with people that get paid twice as much.
It's hilarious how much you talk about how terrified you are of cost inflation when that's literally all you shill for. >hey we could help hundreds of millions of people and put more money circulating into local, national, and international economies; as well as increasing savings and decreasing debt and creating a better quality of life for Americans
OH NO WHAT IF COST OF LIVING GOES UP! >Hey we can hysterically tax our own companies for utilizing cheap foreign labor until they leave and guarantee that cost of living goes up and quality of life goes down and international relationships get sabotaged and eventually the economy tanks
HEY WE ALL NEED TO MAKE SACRIFICES>In the end there will have been if anything lateral economic mobility
If you want economic mobility leave America. Nobody else has to spend a house a healthcare. >there has to be a more nuanced approach.
