Actually, I don't know if I agree. Maybe rich, unscrupulous big business owners or the politicians who`s pockets their lining call it business, but if what they`re doing is really considered unfair by the majority of people who know about it usually said people refer to said `business` by far more appropriate titles.

If what they`re saying is that business in and of itself means stealing from the poor, then that`s just plain silly.

...in order to compete, the airport authority offered that private security company extra money on their contract, with the stipulation that the money go directly to the employees so that they would effectively make $9.50/hr. The security company TURNED DOWN FREE MONEY, because they didn't want to give it to employees, they wanted to keep it for themselves. THAT business owner is robbing his employees of that "fair" wage you mentioned.

When a person starts a business, hires some 'poor` people and pays them a fair, agreed upon wage, he`s STEALING FROM THEM!

This is a typical argument. "Just...start a business, and all your problems will be solved!" Ridiculous on the face of it. Most people don`t want to "start a business", they just want to work a job. No, the business owner is not *necessarily* stealing, but let me give you an example from my own life:

I used to work at screening at an airport. Before 9/11 we were paid $6.85/hr (minimum wage at the time was $6.60/hr). The janitors started at $7.00/hr, which doesn`t exactly seem to suit the importance of my job vs. theirs. There was a private security company that got a tender to do the general security, and their employees started at $7.00/hr as well. After 9/11, our wage was upped to $11.00/hr, and many of the private security people were applying to work with us...

Dollars equal votes. Keep voting for rich peoples products and they remain rich. Simple enough?

When liberals call business robbery, it's called fascism.
