The point about a $15 wage demand at McDonalds, leading to workers being replaced with $35k kiosks, was an example of capitalism and the free market responding to stimulus.

Where I live they get less than $15 per day in most service jobs, plus tips!

That is unkind Jay. We have no reason to think Bob is anyone other than exactly who he says he is.
Do youn't? It's just internet persona. We know it's a team, even if no show off with audio wavs clinking garbage collection or pics of ball caved steel blocks - like some other peep team post exotic islands, food porn and digital hat displays.

Satoshi aside, I wonder who here puts the most effort into putting people off the real life scent with the persona they maintain on here. I've no idea how people keep it up for years on end but I'm sure a few do.

Would you both support effective US immigration controls even if it causes a recession and wipes out many family businesses?

In the interests of National Security, yes.

Problem solved. US immigration controls are already extremely effective. I'd like to see you try to enter the US without your ID/Passport. And then get a job/bank account/etc without an ID or SS#.

Good evening folks.

Market consolidation continues at the $5k battlefront as neither side seems able to gain a foothold. Stronger resistance is forming near $5.12k  Support is falling from $4.7k to $4.66k as shown by the cloud. Possible downwards and sideways movement detected. #dyor

A simple fact:

in 1975 the minimal wage was $5.15
in 2019 the minimal wage is $7.25

Well, $5.15 adjusted for inflation would be $24.33 today, so $15 number is not crazy.

Bob surely produces mixed messages (like paying 1% for 7 fig btc tx is OK, but $15/hr for MickeyD is too much).
The rich are different..., but I liked him more during drinking period...


I had to look this up bc I remember making 4.25 in high school decades after 1975.

Looks like minimum wage was 2.10 in '75.


I believe minimum wage is morally wrong because it makes it illegal for you to sell your labor for under a certain price. This prices out some people out of the work force against their will. I see it as somewhat useful in a fiat currency system where the workers are getting constant de facto pay cuts each day as the currency is debased through money printing. These workers cant negotiate pay raises fast enough to keep up with the de facto pay cuts.

When Bitcoin is the global reserve currency and all sane workers demand to be paid in Bitcoin, de facto pay cuts will be a thing of the past and minimum wage wont be useful at all. Workers will have all the bargaining power. Begging bosses or govs for raises each year wont be necessary as workers will have de facto pay raises as the currency gains value. When Bitcoin gains value too fast for some employers to successfully stay in business, then employers will have to come hat in hand and beg the workers to take less Bitcoin so they can stay in business.

This change in the power dynamic of employee/employer wage negotiation will usher in a prosperity the world has never witnessed.

6k soon.

I am not supporting illegal migration.  I am simply stating that much of the US economy runs on illegal migrant labor.  This is a fact.  
A fact that needs to change. Even it crashes the local economy. America will adapt, always has, always will.

And no, American teenagers do not want to pick bell peppers out of the dirt in the blazing sun for $2 per hour.  
And that's their whole fucking problem, isn't it? Coddled, spoiled, privileged, sitting on their fat asses drinking their $4 lattes and eating $7 avocado toast and $9 millionaire's bacon. All the while crying about illegals taking their jobs.

But no worries, when the world economy goes to shit... they'll learn... by picking free grown bell peppers in the blazing sun out of their back yards just to eat.

I had to google millionaire's bacon. I must try this soon. Smiley

 Same reason I have people managing my portfolios.

I'm probably not qualified, but may I try? I have some asset allocations in mind, but mostly index funds, a small bunch of them.

https://www.reviewjournal.com/entertainment/food/slaters-50-50-serves-a-24k-burger-made-with-real-gold-1526942/

"Slater’s 50/50, known for its iconic burger with a healthy dose of bacon, has done it again with a sandwich that’s a tribute to Las Vegas. The 24K Burger starts with a brioche bun dusted with 24-karat gold, stacked with three strips of 24K “BTCillionaire’s BTCacon,” a half-pound of Australian wagyu beef, truffle cheese, baby arugula, bacon jam, roasted garlic aioli and demi-glace, with regular or sweet potato fries on the side. It sells for $24."

So looks like I have to not only try millionaires bacon, but also get me sum uh dat BTCillionaires BTCacon glazed with 24k gold dust.  Grin

Corrected (not sure where I got a source that was so wrong).
Labor is weak in US, however even super docile teachers were striking or threatening to do so in a bunch of southern states last year when they decided that they cannot take it anymore (even with the laws expressly prohibiting such strike).
IMHO, a state that is not taking proper care of education is doomed in the long run.
