Why has CEO pay skyrocketed? That doesn't benefit anyone.

Why do CEO's today make more than CEO's 10 years ago?
why do sports athletes? oh and most of them are of color.

And actually, 810,000 whites work for or below minimum wage. Only 200,000 blacks. BUT, blacks only make up 10% of our population. So technically more whites would benefit from a min wage increase but percentage wise blacks would.

Who cares anyways? How was your weekend? I recently purchased a $2000 E bike. Just bought an extra battery for $500 so I can go twice as far. I clearly do not work for minimum wage. LOL
no body benefits dumb ass.
The way they raise it now, it's always long overdue. So what if they raised it to $10 hr instead of $15?

You could also make an argument that most employers pay more than minimum wage. Do Walmart workers work for minimum wage? Then why does Walmart raise their prices when Min Wage goes up? Shouldn't affect them at all.

If they lowered minimum wage to $4 hr would prices go back down?
why force private business on what to pay their employees? Businesses Pay is based off many variables and the US government doesn't know what all of those variables are. So, If the money isn't enough, go find a business that is paying what you want. So no, you still don't get it.

BTW, if a business needs you, they will pay much much better. Why do sports athletes make millions when McDonalds pays minimum wage?
I agree and get all that. But if our government looks and sees the masses are now the working poor all working on minimum wage and they are struggling and corporations don't care because all they care about it maximizing profits, then the government has to step in. Unions too. You just don't get it.

Because they are unionized.

he still doesn't know that Zimmerman isn't white. That mere fact blows up his entire thesis.

Zimmerman was white (according to Sealy) because Sealy's a racist who is exploiting blacks because Sealy is a racist.

It it politically served Sealy for Zimmerman to be Latino, Sealy would suddenly get that he's Latino.

It's like Asians and Jews who go back and forth as people of color or whites as Sealy and the Nazi Democrats exploit them. You're either a white man or Democrats exploit you. Or both as you point out with alternately Hispanic/white guy Zimmerman

Do cops pick on Latinos? Asians? Jews? Nope. Just blacks. And it doesn't even have to be in a hood. It could be a black guy living in the white suburbs. The cops treat them differently/worse.

Just blacks? Really? No other minorities, just blacks.

It's whatever serves Sealy's political agenda. For example, the Hispanic Zimmerman was according to Sealy "white" because he killed a black. If the cops had killed Zimmerman, then Sealy would be screaming they killed a Hispanic.

Cops killed an armed black man Jacob Blake and it was the cops fault. Then in DC the cops killed an unarmed white woman and it was the white woman's fault.

Sealy is a racist. He says he's pro black, but when a black tries to leave his Democrat plantation, Sealy and his gang of thugs show them that the Democrat party is the party of racism, slavery, the KKK, Jim Crow and segregation and blacks are still their property.

One thing Sealy does not care about are all the blacks killed by blacks because he hasn't figured out how to exploit that.

Sealy is a sick, manipulative fuck
Hispanics aren't complaining that cops are abusing/murdering them. As long as they don't have an accent they are treated just like you are by the cops.

You just love to make blanket statements about racial groups, don't you?

I wonder, did you ever hear of stop and frisk? That wasn't opposed just for targeting blacks, but rather blacks and Latinos.

How about this? : Or this? : ‘We’re suffering the same abuses’: Latinos hear their stories echoed in police brutality protests
Or this? : Why aren't more people talking about Latinos killed by police?
Or this? : It’s time to talk about police violence against Latinos
Or this? : Say Their Names: Latino Lives Lost to Police Brutality (OPINION)
Or this? : OPINION: Stop ignoring the police killings of Latinos

And it's not just blacks and Latinos, of course : The forgotten minority in police shootings - CNN

But other minorities don't have any problems with police, right? :eusa_doh:
Yes they do. So you agree, the police need to be reformed.

Like I said to someone else yesterday, raising the minimum wage would mostly help the black community because a very large percentage of blacks work for minimum wage. Whites not so much.

So reforming police will mostly help blacks, but it will also help other minorities and even white guys like me who have run into dickhead cops with attitudes.

Did you see this morning a latino man was murdered by cops. It's bullshit. Has to stop.

Outrage grows as new video shows Latino man dying after Bay Area police pin him for 4 minutes


You told someone that a "very large percentage of blacks work for minimum wage," did you? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 1.8% of blacks work at or below minimum wage. To compare, 1.2% of Asians, 1.3% of Latinos, and 1.4% of whites work at or below minimum wage.

As for those making minimum wage, for blacks it's 0.5%, Asians 0.1%, Latinos 0.3%, whites 0.3%.


Do you consider 0.5% to be a "very large percentage"?

There's nothing wrong with police reform, nor with helping minority communities. There is, however, something wrong with tossing around a bunch of generalizations (some of which are false) and incorrect statements.
I don’t know what to tell you if you don’t believe women and people of color will benefit most from raising minimum wage.

The demographic that will benefit the least is white men btw
They won’t, you’re too stupid to understand and that’s your problem

But many recent state and city-level minimum wage increases have been scheduled to be implemented over time and often are indexed to some measure of price inflation. ... They also observe that small minimum wage increases do not lead to higher prices and may actually reduce prices.


Many cons fear that any increase in the minimum wage will be passed on to consumers through price increases thereby slowing spending and economic growth, but that may not be the case. New research shows that the pass-through effect on prices is fleeting and much smaller than previously thought.


Historically, minimum wage increases were large, one-shot changes imposed with little advance notice for businesses. But many recent state and city-level minimum wage increases have been scheduled to be implemented over time and often are indexed to some measure of price inflation. These small, scheduled minimum wage hikes seem to have smaller effects on prices than large, one-time increases.

By looking at changes in restaurant food pricing during the period of 1978–2015, MacDonald and Nilsson find that prices rose by just 0.36 percent for every 10 percent increase in the minimum wage, which is only about half the size reported in previous studies. They also observe that small minimum wage increases do not lead to higher prices and may actually reduce prices. Furthermore, it is also possible that small minimum wage increases could lead to increased employment in low-wage labor markets.

you still didn't answer my question, why force a business to pay more than they can afford? It hurts business. sorry, no matter what you may post or ever understand. What you are doing is hurting the folks who went to college, got a degree and went out for a job, and rewarding someone else for not doing that. That's backwards friend. There are no rewards for doing nothing. And that's what you actually want.

I don't know what to tell YOU if you can't acknowledge your own misleading or false statements.

Did you know that it's entirely possible for women and people of color (what happened to it just being blacks?) to benefit most from a minimum wage increase, and yet at the same time, for there not to be a "very large percentage of blacks" that work for minimum wage?

You make a statement, I point out it's incorrect, and you make it seem as if I don't believe a very different thing.

Sealy is just a racist exploiting blacks ... again ... It's incredible how you see his white ass screaming racist, racist, racist and wanting to BENEFIT from that himself, that he's a white attacking whites as racist. No shame there, none at all

Who would benefit most from raising the minimum wage? Certainly not whites like you.

The only people who benefit from minimum wage increases are leftist politicians when more people lose their jobs and are dependent on government

Blacks benefit from losing their jobs. Keep em poor and dependent, your racist strategy. And if they try to leave the Democrat plantation, remind them that Democrats are also the party of lynching
This is just right wing bullshit. You can't stay on topic and you go off on conspiracy theories. Hard to debate with someone like you, stupid.

Liar. Everything the Democrat Nazi party does to blacks is designed to keep them poor and dependent on your racist, fascist party

George Floyd was the victim of the Great Society, the War on Poverty, and Affirmative Action, not Derek Chauvin.

George Floyd was the victim of Derek Chauvin kneeling on his neck for eight minutes cutting off oxygen.

All while being handcuffed and surrounded by three armed policemen
just one less worthless predator and druggie

How about this? : Or this? : ‘We’re suffering the same abuses’: Latinos hear their stories echoed in police brutality protests
Or this? : Why aren't more people talking about Latinos killed by police?
Or this? : It’s time to talk about police violence against Latinos
Or this? : Say Their Names: Latino Lives Lost to Police Brutality (OPINION)
Or this? : OPINION: Stop ignoring the police killings of Latinos

And it's not just blacks and Latinos, of course : The forgotten minority in police shootings - CNN

But other minorities don't have any problems with police, right? :eusa_doh:
Yes they do. So you agree, the police need to be reformed.

Like I said to someone else yesterday, raising the minimum wage would mostly help the black community because a very large percentage of blacks work for minimum wage. Whites not so much.

So reforming police will mostly help blacks, but it will also help other minorities and even white guys like me who have run into dickhead cops with attitudes.

Did you see this morning a latino man was murdered by cops. It's bullshit. Has to stop.

Outrage grows as new video shows Latino man dying after Bay Area police pin him for 4 minutes


You told someone that a "very large percentage of blacks work for minimum wage," did you? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 1.8% of blacks work at or below minimum wage. To compare, 1.2% of Asians, 1.3% of Latinos, and 1.4% of whites work at or below minimum wage.

As for those making minimum wage, for blacks it's 0.5%, Asians 0.1%, Latinos 0.3%, whites 0.3%.


Do you consider 0.5% to be a "very large percentage"?

There's nothing wrong with police reform, nor with helping minority communities. There is, however, something wrong with tossing around a bunch of generalizations (some of which are false) and incorrect statements.
I don’t know what to tell you if you don’t believe women and people of color will benefit most from raising minimum wage.

The demographic that will benefit the least is white men btw

Blacks benefit from losing their jobs. Keep em poor and dependent, your racist strategy. And if they try to leave the Democrat plantation, remind them that Democrats are also the party of lynching
This is just right wing bullshit. You can't stay on topic and you go off on conspiracy theories. Hard to debate with someone like you, stupid.

Liar. Everything the Democrat Nazi party does to blacks is designed to keep them poor and dependent on your racist, fascist party
Obiden is the uber racist...the old swine

they will never get what happens when that wage goes up. head in sands suckers.
Why has CEO pay skyrocketed? That doesn't benefit anyone.

Why do CEO's today make more than CEO's 10 years ago?

But I do see what you are saying. My dad used to work for minimum wage and every time he got a raise, prices went up. Perhaps that needs to be regulated.

More Marxist propaganda

And actually, 810,000 whites work for or below minimum wage. Only 200,000 blacks. BUT, blacks only make up 10% of our population. So technically more whites would benefit from a min wage increase but percentage wise blacks would.

Who cares anyways? How was your weekend? I recently purchased a $2000 E bike. Just bought an extra battery for $500 so I can go twice as far. I clearly do not work for minimum wage. LOL
no body benefits dumb ass.
The way they raise it now, it's always long overdue. So what if they raised it to $10 hr instead of $15?

You could also make an argument that most employers pay more than minimum wage. Do Walmart workers work for minimum wage? Then why does Walmart raise their prices when Min Wage goes up? Shouldn't affect them at all.

If they lowered minimum wage to $4 hr would prices go back down?
why force private business on what to pay their employees? Businesses Pay is based off many variables and the US government doesn't know what all of those variables are. So, If the money isn't enough, go find a business that is paying what you want. So no, you still don't get it.

BTW, if a business needs you, they will pay much much better. Why do sports athletes make millions when McDonalds pays minimum wage?
I agree and get all that. But if our government looks and sees the masses are now the working poor all working on minimum wage and they are struggling and corporations don't care because all they care about it maximizing profits, then the government has to step in. Unions too. You just don't get it.

why do sports athletes? oh and most of them are of color.
Because they are unionized.
there are millions of open jobs. Millions. and provide on the job training and pay above minimum wage. why don't these people go investigate the jobs that exist?
Probably because they don't exist or they don't qualify? Or they don't live close enough? Or because they are black and won't get hired?

Please show me one of these jobs that pay over minimum wage for someone who doesn't have experience or an education. No. Show me these jobs in Detroit. We know they exist in your white city.

The reason most people can not apply for most jobs is that they are not a normal vocational skill.
For example, a person who installs a cable, satellite, or fiber optic network access to homes does not have to know computers, software, hardware, engineering or anything generic like that. Instead they have to know the exact arbitrary procedures created and used by that company. So then what is needed is specific and arbitrary experience in using just their methodology. Which is not likely transferable to any other company.
And after an area has been converted to the latest technology, then they need very few people to keep it up, so they fire 99% of their employees.

he still doesn't know that Zimmerman isn't white. That mere fact blows up his entire thesis.

Zimmerman was white (according to Sealy) because Sealy's a racist who is exploiting blacks because Sealy is a racist.

It it politically served Sealy for Zimmerman to be Latino, Sealy would suddenly get that he's Latino.

It's like Asians and Jews who go back and forth as people of color or whites as Sealy and the Nazi Democrats exploit them. You're either a white man or Democrats exploit you. Or both as you point out with alternately Hispanic/white guy Zimmerman

Do cops pick on Latinos? Asians? Jews? Nope. Just blacks. And it doesn't even have to be in a hood. It could be a black guy living in the white suburbs. The cops treat them differently/worse.

Just blacks? Really? No other minorities, just blacks.

It's whatever serves Sealy's political agenda. For example, the Hispanic Zimmerman was according to Sealy "white" because he killed a black. If the cops had killed Zimmerman, then Sealy would be screaming they killed a Hispanic.

Cops killed an armed black man Jacob Blake and it was the cops fault. Then in DC the cops killed an unarmed white woman and it was the white woman's fault.

Sealy is a racist. He says he's pro black, but when a black tries to leave his Democrat plantation, Sealy and his gang of thugs show them that the Democrat party is the party of racism, slavery, the KKK, Jim Crow and segregation and blacks are still their property.

One thing Sealy does not care about are all the blacks killed by blacks because he hasn't figured out how to exploit that.

Sealy is a sick, manipulative fuck
Hispanics aren't complaining that cops are abusing/murdering them. As long as they don't have an accent they are treated just like you are by the cops.

You just love to make blanket statements about racial groups, don't you?

But many recent state and city-level minimum wage increases have been scheduled to be implemented over time and often are indexed to some measure of price inflation. ... They also observe that small minimum wage increases do not lead to higher prices and may actually reduce prices.


Many cons fear that any increase in the minimum wage will be passed on to consumers through price increases thereby slowing spending and economic growth, but that may not be the case. New research shows that the pass-through effect on prices is fleeting and much smaller than previously thought.


Historically, minimum wage increases were large, one-shot changes imposed with little advance notice for businesses. But many recent state and city-level minimum wage increases have been scheduled to be implemented over time and often are indexed to some measure of price inflation. These small, scheduled minimum wage hikes seem to have smaller effects on prices than large, one-time increases.

By looking at changes in restaurant food pricing during the period of 1978–2015, MacDonald and Nilsson find that prices rose by just 0.36 percent for every 10 percent increase in the minimum wage, which is only about half the size reported in previous studies. They also observe that small minimum wage increases do not lead to higher prices and may actually reduce prices. Furthermore, it is also possible that small minimum wage increases could lead to increased employment in low-wage labor markets.
you still didn't answer my question, why force a business to pay more than they can afford? It hurts business. sorry, no matter what you may post or ever understand. What you are doing is hurting the folks who went to college, got a degree and went out for a job, and rewarding someone else for not doing that. That's backwards friend. There are no rewards for doing nothing. And that's what you actually want.
Sorry but that's what made America great. Back when GM was the largest employer in America those jobs paid a great living. And the company was FORCED to pay by labor. Ok so it bothers you when the government gets involved and raises minimum wage. Well then we should make it easier for people to organize into unions so they can deal with the boss who you say went to college, got a degree and has the right to pay minumum wage.

And he does have the right. But he can't pay under minimum wage. AND, if the government decides to raise minimum wage because it's too low, don't cry you big fucking baby. I guess you are going to have to pay your employees a little better in the future.

If there were so many better than minimum wage jobs out there that would bring minimum wage up naturally. Employers wouldn't be able to find anyone to work for minimum wage. Unfortunately right now employers can get away with paying minimum wage. Why? Probably because there aren't a lot of jobs that pay better, as you claim.

My former co-worker wasn't making enough at my company. She should have had recruiters calling her and stealing her away for more money. That's not the case today. The economy isn't as great as you guys think. I remember when it was great. The 90's. The Clinton years. Recruiters would call you up and offer you $10,000 more than you are making now to get you to leave. That's not happening today.

Although I did just get a call and the guy offered me $150,000 a year. I make about $100,000. I told him no way. Who's to say I will be successful at this new place? Who's to say I'll fit in there? What happened to the last guy if the job is so freaking great? Plus I work from home now. Even if I didn't, my office is 7 minutes away. I plan on staying here until I retire at age 62. 12 more years.

most people who really want to work put in an effort to learn something. On line college exists, my daughter graduates in four days, online to be a lawyer, has a job 40 hours a week over minimum wage. She has four kids and a disabled husband and one of my grandson's has Cerebral Palsey. Lazy people don't want to put in any effort. sad. and you coddle them, look at you.

fuck you. Look at what the mirrorthief said about Floyd. This is what we know you Republicans think about black people. So you can call us liberals Nazi's all you want. We know who the real kkk is. It's you guys in the GOP.

Is the mirrorthief a conservative? Of course he is. Why would black people ever vote for the same people that nazi supports?

George Floyd was the victim of the Great Society, the War on Poverty, and Affirmative Action, not Derek Chauvin.

George Floyd was the victim of Derek Chauvin kneeling on his neck for eight minutes cutting off oxygen.

All while being handcuffed and surrounded by three armed policemen
just one less worthless predator and druggie

Floyd only had a criminal record of one crime over 40 years ago, and all honest jobs since then.
And everyone is a druggie.
Drugs are why we eat, sleep, have sex, etc.
The only difference is some are natural and some artificial.
And to get the same high naturally just costs a lot more, for things like ski trips, skydiving, bungee jumping, etc.

My former co-worker wasn't making enough at my company. She should have had recruiters calling her and stealing her away for more money. That's not the case today. The economy isn't as great as you guys think. I remember when it was great. The 90's. The Clinton years. Recruiters would call you up and offer you $10,000 more than you are making now to get you to leave. That's not happening today.

Although I did just get a call and the guy offered me $150,000 a year. I make about $100,000. I told him no way. Who's to say I will be successful at this new place? Who's to say I'll fit in there? What happened to the last guy if the job is so freaking great? Plus I work from home now. Even if I didn't, my office is 7 minutes away. I plan on staying here until I retire at age 62. 12 more years.
why the 180 degree swing? you're back at minimum wage bullshit. dude, get away from me know, I'm not rehashing what I already presented.

And actually, 810,000 whites work for or below minimum wage. Only 200,000 blacks. BUT, blacks only make up 10% of our population. So technically more whites would benefit from a min wage increase but percentage wise blacks would.

Who cares anyways? How was your weekend? I recently purchased a $2000 E bike. Just bought an extra battery for $500 so I can go twice as far. I clearly do not work for minimum wage. LOL
no body benefits dumb ass.
The way they raise it now, it's always long overdue. So what if they raised it to $10 hr instead of $15?

You could also make an argument that most employers pay more than minimum wage. Do Walmart workers work for minimum wage? Then why does Walmart raise their prices when Min Wage goes up? Shouldn't affect them at all.

If they lowered minimum wage to $4 hr would prices go back down?
why force private business on what to pay their employees? Businesses Pay is based off many variables and the US government doesn't know what all of those variables are. So, If the money isn't enough, go find a business that is paying what you want. So no, you still don't get it.

BTW, if a business needs you, they will pay much much better. Why do sports athletes make millions when McDonalds pays minimum wage?
I agree and get all that. But if our government looks and sees the masses are now the working poor all working on minimum wage and they are struggling and corporations don't care because all they care about it maximizing profits, then the government has to step in. Unions too. You just don't get it.
Why has CEO pay skyrocketed? That doesn't benefit anyone.

Why do CEO's today make more than CEO's 10 years ago?
why do sports athletes? oh and most of them are of color.
Because they are unionized.
there are millions of open jobs. Millions. and provide on the job training and pay above minimum wage. why don't these people go investigate the jobs that exist?

The reason most people can not apply for most jobs is that they are not a normal vocational skill.
For example, a person who installs a cable, satellite, or fiber optic network access to homes does not have to know computers, software, hardware, engineering or anything generic like that. Instead they have to know the exact arbitrary procedures created and used by that company. So then what is needed is specific and arbitrary experience in using just their methodology. Which is not likely transferable to any other company.
most people who really want to work put in an effort to learn something. On line college exists, my daughter graduates in four days, online to be a lawyer, has a job 40 hours a week over minimum wage. She has four kids and a disabled husband and one of my grandson's has Cerebral Palsey. Lazy people don't want to put in any effort. sad. and you coddle them, look at you.
Yea and I bet she never got help from no one.
