So you think the less a worker is paid the better so the business can be


efficient and competitive. That makes for a lot of low paid workers. And don't say he/she should look elsewhere to make more money--they are all trying to keep labor costs down.

While it has crept up a bit recently, workers wages have been stagnant for DECADES. Meanwhile, those in the ownership class have seen their income skyrocket. I find it immoral; you might say that is just Capitalism.

That "time in our history" remark is the typical answer from the right. I know you are not an extremist, but things were better when wages were increasing and you unions had a big effect. Unions did more than just address horrid working conditions in "the old days" but still works on curbing abuses by employers. I know they are not perfect!
