Let’s not get cocky. I was once told it was the dumbest thing someone had ever heard. I responded by asking them how long they’d worked at Wendy’s. 😁 (nm)

I wonder when it will occur to small, service companies to bid up wages & benefits to attract and retain unskilled labor. .

That's the plan as far as I'm aware. Replace incapable humans with capable robots.

I couldn't find current capital plant & equipment investment stats after an exhaustive 3 minute google, so I don't know how its been going. I know stock buybacks have set records - not a positive development.

"Raising the minimum wage to $15 would put lots of cash in the economy quickly. People living hand-to-mouth don't invest new cash."

At least get rid of top wages. People suck at tipping and restaurants make a killing off of not paying employees (nm)

re: "The company has made a ton of money but none of the employees have really prospered. That's another thread." And therein lies the crux. Company managers are greedy and don't share the profits. My new mantra: business ethics needs...

My answer to this is a maximum wage. 4000x the lowest paid employee.

Exactly the reason that won’t happen. Just pay themselves less but be worth more as an asset (nm)

One thing I have noticed is that employers are still reluctant to pay higher wages and are very reluctant to offer to train people for the job they want to fill. Too many employers (especially in Utah) are expecting fully trained & experienced folks

Conservative Econ 101 has always told us that a strong economy would just naturally push wages upward. Supply and demand, y'know.

I had a business professor tell us that you are always worth more to someone else and people who stay with the same company their entire lives are leaving a lot of earnings on the table.

One of the reasons he's a bad employer is that he clearly mis-understands economics.

Its garbage and nobody really wants to go look for another job particularly if you are happy with it overall, and smart employers reward employee loyalty - but yeah. (nm)

So you're saying now would be a bad time to be out of work...did I mention the contract I've worked for the last 11+ years was lost to a competitor and my last day was May 31?

It boggles the mind that that amount of money can be spent on something that is obviously not commercially viable. It just underscores how so many truly wealthy people had a massive dose of luck. (nm)

Did you see the Osceola static test. I wonder what changes they made to the Shuttle nozzle. Of all the things that could go wrong, I wouldn't have expected the exit cone. Thoughts? (nm)
