Jake’s prediction not coming true.
Get your mouth off your own tiny dick. I agree the trend isn’t great. But I didn’t predict it would be over at this point. Covid is obviously still a large factor. But something nobody forecast that I saw, including you, with all the important things to say, is the empowerment of the bottom rung employees. If prices rise to pay more at the bottom tiers, I am all for that. As I said a while back, let’s check back in early 2022. You will be well on your way to 100K at that point.

Now put me back on “ignore.”

Honest question, do you really think the one is going to catch up with the other? Prices will always outpace minimum wage. Virtually everything the left does is an all-out veiled assault on the lower class, keep them in their place, but keep convincing them "we're working for YOU!!"

We're on an accelerated march towards an America unrecognizable to someone looking from 20-30 years ago; crush small business, corporate America making our decisions, and continue keeping the unwashed masses under the thumb of the government partnered with the mega-corporations.

Nailed it.

Immature post.

Great contrast between two posters- the one on top -a thoughtful adult. The one on the bottom- an angry tot.

Make it $15 and then index for inflation.

Hmm who blocks this consistently?
The $15 min wage debate is over. It has already happened, but as expected it isn't turning out the way folks promised. Now you want more? The truth is that there are plenty of jobs out there right now well above this wage. My 16-year old works at a restaurant and makes well above that. The problem is that too many people want more for doing the same job instead of taking upon themselves to improve their situation. That is what the 4.5 million you posted about yesterday did in August. There has never been a better time. What is stopping other folks from fixing the situation for themselves right now???

Good question, maybe we should force them to work.

Inflation/supply chain issues? No worries. We have the the right people on it.

This has proven minimum wage laws are a stupid thing to focus on. They're not needed. Leftists can be very dumb too.

Article in National Geographic recently: healthiest spots in the world where people live 100+ feature couple common diet staples: beans and rice.

Take advantage of inflation to extend your life. Best to buy dried beans, any color and unprocessed rice. Just soak to soften and enjoy. Few drops of Texas Pete maybe.

You'll also get rich faster per Dave Ramsey.

You do realize that a big part of “supply chain issues” is caused by labor shortages, right?

Give her credit for throwing in the obligatory “these issues existed before the pandemic.” There really is nothing that isn’t the last guys fault. :rolleyes:

Most of it are issues around the world due to Covid. Sure some small part is labor but I don't think the labor issues in the US are a driver.

Demographics mean this labor shortage isn't going anywhere. Just look at the retirement thread, 55/60 retirements. Covid accelerated many people to retirement also.

“Most”. “Small part”.
Link?

I blame Biden. If he can't motivate the over 70 crowd to go back out and get a job, who can?

Lol, howie liked this post. Mr small government im not a socialist.
I think it’s a great idea. They minimize the impact of rent and food on the inflation calculations, so I’m sure this will make the poor much richer.

You predicted it would get better. They haven’t even passed their trillions of dollar spending bills yet. That will accelerate this trend. Good times! We’re helping the poors by making things more expensive for them!

It's pretty clear what she means by "these issues existed before the pandemic" is that they were created by 8 years of Barry/Biden incompetence and anti-America administrative action.

It will. Just wait long enough. But that’s your game, @50K of Important Thoughts to Share. Unlike you, I will man up and give an actual opinion. I’ll stick by my thought that the economy is wanting to bust positively, but there are some obvious supply chain issues and Covid holding it back. Let’s see where we are in March. Now put me back on “ignore.”

IIRC, you said the inflation was temporary and would revert back. That is different than slowing or getting better.
