That is not true, not even close to true as automation and information technology changes the labor landscape. In fact, it is foolish thinking to believe that everyone should work. It elucidates Arbeit Mach Frei more than anything else. So I went in to the local Walmart Neighborhood Market yesterday afternoon. I won't go back, and I had shopped there often. It is all self-checkout, and don't get me wrong, I almost always use self-checkout. And I pay with my cellphone. You call that touchless checkout. But for there to be no cashiers, well it was a clusterfuck. But here is the thing. Walmart is going cut labor costs significantly by getting rid of those cashiers. Will they use those savings to lower their prices? Hell no. There is not a single item in that store that's price is based on cost. They charge whatever the market will bear. Yes, Walmart wants to be the low price leader, but that is just it, lower then everyone else but as high as they can get it and still be lower than competitors. They are already the low price leader, they don't need to cut those prices anymore.I guess you never heard of when the majority of the people arent working but taking from the system, the system is going to fail, you dont give a shit about it, as long as it doesnt get in your way ? Either you are an ignorant fool, or just a Demoncrap voter who wont give a shit until it does affect you, but by then it will be too late...First, if the wealthy want to leave because of taxes, well don't let the door kick them in the ass on the way out, I don't want them here. Second, if someone is happy sitting on their ass and collecting welfare, then God bless them. Keep collecting welfare, I am more than willing to pay them to stay the hell out of my way. If someone has so little motivation that welfare makes them happy, then no, I don't want them in the labor force.When you raise the taxes on the wealthy they move to a friendlier country. Sorry dude, but the wealthy can afford to move, and then the bitching middle class has to pick up the bill again. CUT THE FUCKING SPENDING. Dont need to send millions of dollars to other countries so they can study genders, and cut the welfare, because those who sit on their ass and do nothing but smoke dope and bitch and moan, need to get a fucking job.....It is a bogus argument, that the wealthy pay most of the taxes because, yes, the wealthy garnish most of the income. I am all for the wealthy paying a lower percentage of the total taxes. To make that happen it is simple, you raise the marginal tax rate on the wealthy, significantly. When those marginal rate were above 60% the wealthy paid a much lower percentage of total taxes, because they had a much lower share of total income. It is a bogus argument because no way in hell the wealthy would be willing to trade the position they are in now for the position they were in when marginal tax rates were higher.I haven’t seen the 2019 figures, bit in 2017, the top 10% had a total Gross income of around 5.2 trillion. The bottom 50% had a total gross income of around 1.2 trillion. The bottom 50% pays a much larger portion of its income for Social security and Medicare. It kinda makes sense that more tax revenue comes from the group with the most incomeSo you ignored the statistics of 2019? Where the most revenue brought in to the US treasury was from the top 15%, while the bottom 50% pay hardly anything. Why dont they pay their fair share?i say to those rich hypocrites who haven't payed a nickel in taxes last year: no more, fellas, Biden's coming! BIDEN'S COMING!
Perfect example. I worked on a sales team at a furniture store. They hired this girl who was absolutely terrible. She would actually pan-handle her clients and she didn't sell jackshit. So I approached the rest of the sales team. Asked them to donate money to the worthless bitch so she would quit burning ups and we can sell to the clients she was getting. They all agreed. We sent her packing, and we all made more money. She actually bought a car with the money we gave her, and it was more than worth it.

So, let's say they shave off seven fulltime cashiers, that is conservative. That is about three thousand dollars a week. Three thousand dollars a week that used to flow right back in to the community. Now, that three thousand is going to go straight to the stockholders, so about fifteen hundred is going directly in the pocket of the Walmart heirs. The same amount of "work" is getting done, but now the value of that "work" is flowing out of the community. That one example should make it clear why wages have stagnated while productivity has soared. It is time we put an end to that trend, we capture the value of automation and information technology at the local level, less people work, more people get to find self-actualization instead of struggling to survive, and we make this world a much better place. It has absolutely nothing to do with "work".
