should we even have a minimum wage?

Singapore doesn't and they have what's considered to be zero unemployment

The minimum wage has never been an issue for me and I started working at 14, I decide where I work and what I'm willing to be paid, why cant everyone else?

Not everyone has a marketable skill or even chooses to acquire one

Hey, it drives innovation for further automation. Replacing people with machines!

Making the rich (the engineers inventors and innovators) richer and the poor unemployed and back on the government tit where the left wants them!

thats true, I just bought 4 unique vending machines and am considering buy a 5th.

I got one of these ($10K new, I bought for $3K at auction):


I bought three of these at an auction for $1,600 total ($20K+ new with shipping & taxes):



I am also considering buying this to install on the face of a building I own in a high traffic area a few steps away from a hike and bike trail:


the cool thing about the first two machines is I can sell high ticket items vs the cheap crap in traditional vending machines. All of the above will be cashless and only take credit or debit cards. They have inventory management over the web so I know what's selling and not and what needs to be be refilled.

I hope to create an app where it can be completely touch-less so you can buy over your app on your phone and then use geofencing to tell the machine your in proximity and when to make the product available. Plus once I get a decent number of users signed up, I can use the app to do flash sales of inventory thats moving slow to clear out that SKU or to do a limited release item with only a specific number available to create urgency to buy.

we might also use one of them in conjunction with a tiny butcher shop where you can pick up aged meats and charcuterie 24/7/365. Same idea with a small sweet shop that could sell cookies, candies and cakes/pies

I think the vending machine is finally getting the makeover it needs and when married with modern technology plus control over the internet, its going to make this a concept we see applied to all kinds of products

so how does the minimum wage motivate them to acquire one?

It might actually discourage employers from hiring someone to learn on the job until they well surpassed the minimum wage

My family heritage was from people that never created anything. They just worked for large companies, the Govt, or school districts. No independent businessmen in the lot.

thats cool, nothing wrong with that, what's your point?

My point was some people are just lazy and pieces of shit, and that’s all they will ever be by design or by choice.

Minimum wage doesn’t encourage anyone to do or be anything other than lazy.

It does however motivate the people who want more out of life to do better and search out better paying jobs.

When I entered the workforce legally at age 16 I had no skills and nothing to offer any company other than hard work. I never worked for minimum wage. Even without skills or experience I was still able to find jobs that paid better than minimum wage. Prior to that I worked for my dad from 13-16 to earn money for my first car before that. But I couldn’t use that experience to get a job because it technically wasn’t reportable income.

And the Marxists on the left who don't understand capitalism and don't understand it's a living organism, believe it can/will just wastefully subsidize these leeches. Orrrrr foolishly hope/believe they can crash that system by overloading it aka Cloward/Piven.

In order to BE a Marxist you first have to be someone who doesn't understand capitalism. And they don't. And don't want to. Because they believe the profit motive is inherently evil.

Honestly, I don't know that I had a point.
I just wanted to get that off my chest...

Because Unity Bitches!

A CA Rep introduced a bill to ban Trumps name from ever being used on a building, street sign, memorial i action, statue or other monument memorializing Trump!

They want to make sure he disappears from history so bad that they are trying to even trying to bar a fucking President from being buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

Fuck the Dems! Fuck the left! Fuck the Libs! Fuck them all and their unity! They can shove their unity right up their ass!

make it apply to all of congress and every president and I'm on board

street names, etc should be reserved for people that do significant shit besides run their trap. Name this stuff after our people that haul trash, doctors, nurses, Medal of Honor recipients, scientist, etc

At one point, two of Janssen’s employees, described by the police report as “Mexican males,” walked past the loading dock area, and Hunter Biden told a police officer that the store had some suspicious people working for it. Asked if he was referring to those two staffers, Hunter responded, “Yea, prolly illegal,” according to the report.

When a police officer asked Hunter whether the gun had been used in a crime, the officer reported that Hunter "became very agitated with me and asked me if I was intentionally trying to make him mad," according to the report.
