Response to StrongBad (Reply #7)

18. Yeah, and then taxpayers are on the hook providing "additional services" to people who work 40+ hrs

A week and are still below poverty level.

So we're subsidising McDonalds, etc. low pay policies and corporate profits. fuck that. If I want to subsidize mcdonalds I will buy one of their shitburgers and do it at the register.

It's not as simple as "provide value" - last time we let the unregulated free market alone determine what labor was worth in a complete regulatory vacuum, 7 year olds were put to work in coal mines and weekends didnt exist.
