"Dozens of people line up for Walmart jobs." Maybe because there are no other jobs to be had, unless you want to work at Taco Bell.

"People choose to work at Walmart." Oh really? What are their other options, McDonalds? Are these pompous @sses serious?

"Those are all jobs that can be done by pretty much anyone after a couple weeks of training."

What an non-nice individual.

It takes more than 2 weeks to become an electrician, HVAC man, or any of the other jobs you listed.

Well, it's been real, but I`ve got to run. I`ll try to check back later tonight or tomorrow to see where we are.

I`m still curious why you think raising it to some value (say, $15) will be a positive, but raising it to a higher value (say, $60) will be negative.

I don`t understand what possible thing may exist or occur that would suddenly make raising the minimum wage shift from net-positive to net-negative.

OK... I messed this up in a few places.


Nevermind... you've already noticed.

This is different than what you said a couple posts ago, though. Here, you're saying that the INCREASED COST PER TRANSACTION is lower at WalMart. That seems reasonable.

Before, your statement was written such that you were saying that there was a greater TOTAL INCREASED COST at Walmart; we can`t know that.



OK... I messed this up in a few places.

Should be INCREASED COSTS PER TRANSACTION AS A PERCENTAGE. Also, second paragraph should be "...increased total cost at McDonalds"
