Try using capitalization and punctuation, and somebody might listen to you. This isn't college. You don't get a pass just by vomiting the teacher's ideology back at him. Actual effort is required to convince me that you aren't a criminally ignorant dumbass LARPing as a revolutionary against a system that created you, indoctrinated your views into you, and accepts you with open arms.

You are currently failing. Catastrophically.

Yes people have always preferred experienced to not. But if you can negotiate a fair wage based on experience then does it not stand to reason that the non-experienced would have a better shot than the government forcing employers to pay x amount for services? If wage is non negotiable, then of course you're going to see more experienced people working even in what is supposed to be a starting job to get you introduced to the work force. That's largely because people with no experience take longer to get used to a job than people who've had many jobs. Yes you can spend more time and money on training a new guy or just give the veteran a list of things to do and watch them get it done.

So someone who has no job experience and no training can produce $15/hr of value? Or do you think it's more likely they'll hire people with experience over a kid to get their money's worth? By raising or even having minimum wage you're pricing kids who are trying to get some work out of the job market.
#260 - thebigbadbeest (07/22/2016) [-]
first the vast majority of people that make minim wage or below $15/hour are not kids and definitely, produce much more than $15/hour. second, they do prioritise experience already and will always do that. Finally, after a few days of training, most people at most become productive enough to make more the $15/hour. Most work is relatively easy mentally but requires a lot of physical labour and time.

that is bullshit false logic used by people who want to discredit capitalism. Nobody is forcing or compelling anyone to do anything. People make choices based on their circumstances typically i they want to be responsible, but plenty of people choose to live within, below, or above their means. Unless someone is activley forcing you to take a certain course of action, you are the master of your destiny and you are the one making your choices

As someone who waits tables and occasionally cooks, no we don't deserve $15 minimum wage. The jobs are easy as hell. Pay like that should be something you have to go to trade school for.

The idea that raising the minimum wage increases wealth is ridiculous.

"Communism isn't about corporatizing the state, only the people who worship Stalin do this!"

The stupidity of Commiekids is insufferable. You don't even understand the principles of what you espouse, and yet you behave as though sucking the dick of a different demagogue makes any sort of difference at all. What are you LARPing as then, a Maoist? Have you even fucking read the Manifesto? Do you not understand that they all did the same things and it failed ever time? Are you actually going to try and sit here and tell me that Mao, or Castro, or Guevara, didn't do the same things Stalin did, in the pursuit of the same goals Stalin sought?

A modern Communist is someone who owns a book he has not read, which contains ten planks he does not know, which lead to an end result he does not understand, and whenever he is criticized, he dodges from one Communist figure to the next, as though that makes any difference when all of them followed the same planks to achieve the same end-results using the same methods. And they all failed.

Communism is corportization of the state. It creates a single corporate entity that has an absolute monopoly on everything, and believes that because money has been removed from the equation, this will somehow dissolve social strata, even though there has to be a 1% handing out bread and deciding who among the 99% gets electricy or deserves to be thrown in jail.

Communism doesn't destroy the "bourgeois." It gives them a thousand times more power than they ever had before. Prior to Communism, they exerted power and control indirectly by controlling money. Once Communism is enacted, they can exert power and control directly be deciding personally who deserves to live and eat, and who should starve and die.

There is a reason the Rothschilds, the most powerful banking family on the planet, bankrolled the Soviet takeover of Russia. It's because they knew something you don't, which is that a Communist regime doesn't destroy people like them. It gives them even greater power. Because money is just an intermediary for power, and trading away all of their monetary fortunes to gain the ability to directly decide who lives and who dies in a new world order is a massive upgrade.

Communists hate the people who rule over them, and believe they can solve the problem by giving those people a thousand times more power and control over the masses than they ever had before. What a fucking joke.

I understand that you really do believe that is what communism is but you are simply wrong. Most Communist are very well read and are history buffs. they know of all the failed attempts at revolution and study and talk about what can be done differently. Furthermore most communist are anarchist or Trotskyists who can not stand "tankies". (Tankies are people who like Stalin, Mao, Castro, Guevara and sometimes the DPRK.)
They want workers counsels and radical labor unions. They can't stand the state would never advocate for state control like you say they would. You might find it interesting to look up the Spanish Civil war 1936-1939 and look how for a time communist ran things without hierarchy or a state. also the Paris commune in 1871 is pretty cool. Finally as a reference to people most communist actually like Rosa Luxemburg, Friedrich Engels, Eugene V. Debs, Mikhail Bakunin and (some people) Leon Trotsky. I hope you actually look at some of this because you should at least know what you are in opposition to.

a small one in contemporary politics that has ideas that are nothing like the ideas of most communist. It is actually the case that most modern communists are anarchists. Stalin actively repressed most real communist and by the 30s the USSR was nothing but a State-Capitalist nation
