THE TRUTH ABOUT MINIMUM WAGE+

minimum-wage

MYTH: We will always be able to remain fully employed as a nation and it is desirable to do so.

TRUTH: We need massive underemployment to get rid of trivial unnecessary jobs in the economy and make it more efficient in the future by offering free education in a technical field as a realistic hope of future employment to those unemployed and destitute who have a desire to put in the effort and who have the ability and who will try to achieve a greater level of quality education.

With a safety net for the unemployed and destitute there will be no need for a minimum wage because if it is too low then citizens will remain unemployed and destitute supported with basic needs delivered door to door but no vehicle transportation.

Instead without a minimum wage employers will be able to hire teenage offspring to do fast food, clerical help, custodial work, deli work, urban farming, safe factory jobs,  and other safe jobs at minimal hourly rates for about 4 hours a day so that they get training in the work ethic on the job with financial help from the family.  Children of the employed will have the opportunity to learn basic job and people skills which will be very useful in the employment world where it is frequently said that you can’t get a job without experience.

Transportation to an from work can be done by specialty van, bicycles, and scooters with parental permission.

Teenage offspring of the employed will get all the job experience which they need and then some! We will also be once again in a competitive position with developing countries like China and Russia.

There may be some that feel that there would be less time for school if they worked.  Shorten the school day by four hours a day because offspring aren’t learning useful job skills in school anyway and a liberal arts education is overrated and is largely an inefficient trivial pursuit expensive bureaucracy to boot.

Teenage offspring of the unemployed and destitute should not qualify for part time work because it would motivate the adults to have more offspring and send them out to earn spending money for the unemployed and destitute. Instead the teenage offspring of the unemployed and destitute should be spending more time on education which will benefit them later in life.

I don’t believe in using profane language but I use fuck here to get the message across to those working people that I love so much such as furniture movers.  Those people have bodily difficult jobs carrying heavy furniture every day and it is a hard boring job.  Many of them use fuck and motherfucker every forth word or so and I empathize with them.

I am a man for the working people because I have been there and seen it and experienced it with my own body sweat.  Yea, I can also move medium weight furniture. I am not afraid of dirty difficult jobs or any job because different jobs are necessary and to be admired. I worked my butt off doing a speedy job by moving speedily with about three to five boxes at a time strapped to my back.  Did I get rewarded for that extra work? No!  I was working for minimum wage and there was no incentive to work efficiently and make the customer happy with a speedy move.

The truth is that most of those minimum wage jobs are unjust and in about 10 to 20 years there should be very few minimum wage jobs that robots can’t do better. Most of those minimum wage workers should be educating themselves on the internet for better technologically based jobs.  Education retraining in science and technology over the internet at home or in school should be financed by the federal government and the instruction for the audio visual education should be provided by private firms also potentially funded by foundations such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. All the recipients of this free internet education would be the unemployed and destitute and all students in public schools and community colleges and universities.

The truth is that most minimum wage jobs should be robotized and humans should not be trapped into working at minimum subsistence levels for long durations.  That kind of work is truly dehumanizing and an unjust exploitation and minimization of the full potential of the human body and mind!!!!!!

WE DON’T NEED A MINIMUM WAGE IF WE PASS LAWS GUARANTEEING A SAFETY NET FOR ALL UNEMPLOYED AND DESTITUTE ADULTS AND THAT INCLUDES RECENT SCHOOL GRADUATES WHO CAN’T FIND EMPLOYMENT IN THE WORKPLACE. ONLY FOOD STAMPS ARE NOT ENOUGH HELP FOR THE UNEMPLOYED AND DESTITUTE STRANGERS AND FAMILY OFFSPRING!!!!!!

IS IT CHEAPER TO LIVE ON WELFARE AND NOT WORK AT MINIMUM WAGE?

fw_ttl

The answer is yes in many cases because being on welfare means not having to pay for medical care, food, shelter, and basic needs which most humans working at minimum wage can’t afford.

Here are some links which present the problem and offer realistic solutions:

THE TRUTH ABOUT MINIMUM WAGE

minimumwage11

If we had a safety net for all those unemployed and also destitute then we would not need a minimum wage but anyone could live in the safety net and only go to work voluntarily if it was a living wage. Employers would have to pay a wage that workers would be voluntarily willing to work for. No minimum wage would be necessary!

Of course reality is such that local communities have housing laws which have occupancy limits per household so providing shelter to the unemployed and also destitute is a huge expense for welfare and tax payers. If local communities permitted an occupancy limit of about 4 occupants per single bedroom apartment then welfare could provide cheap shelter for those in distress. Government could then hire private agencies to deliver minimum basic standardized necessities door to door for the unemployed and also destitute at minimum cost to the taxpayers.

Government would not have to provide any spending money for the welfare recipients and they would be living without cash which they usually spend irresponsibly on impulsive buys, alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs anyway.

Of course realistically this would mean unemployed ghettos in communities where high density living would be permitted.

Government could then create a resume video of all those on welfare and employers could scan them for potential job candidates. The employers would interview the candidate in person at their home residence and make arrangements to rent out a scooter or three wheeled motorcycle in the snowy north so that the welfare recipient could commute to and from work.

One further point. For all those willing to put in the time, effort, and achievement free internet education in useful technological job skills could be provided by the government for free. This way self-motivated humans with ability and a desire to learn new useful skills who lost their jobs could stay at home and reeducate themselves for the new technological 21st century.

What is the motivation to start work or reeducate yourself on the internet for free??? I don’t want to live for free in a drug free ghetto without cigarettes, alcohol, or spending money and share my room with three humans for the rest of my life!!!!!!

CONCLUSION:

No minimum wage is necessary if the welfare system is radically overhauled to make way for 21st century job scarce realities. If the unemployed and also destitute want to escape the high density ghetto with free room and board and no cash to spend they could start work voluntarily and once again have spending money which they could spend in the outside world and move out of the ghetto once they could independently live on their own with a living wage.

My evergreen truth book CHANGES IN WELFARE LAWS shows in detail the necessary laws which have to be passed to make a just welfare system possible where there is truly hope of escaping the ghetto in a voluntary efficient way for the benefit of society and especially for the benefit of the overburdened middle class taxpayers.

WHAT EMPLOYERS ARE LOOKING FOR DEPENDS ON THE JOB TYPE

irs-audit-employer-211x300

All employers prefer someone with some job experience because punctuality is important in any job since the biggest problem is employees not showing up for work. If you have held jobs in the past for more than just a few months it is an indication that you also will probably show up for work on a regular basis.

Minimum wage jobs such as fast food jobs and cashier jobs with a high turnover are frequently jobs where the manager is afraid of his or her job security and will frequently not react very well to someone who expresses a desire to move up in the business hierarchy or organization.  Many of those managers feel insecure in their jobs and do not want you to compete with them for their job.

A happy personality with good communications skills is always a plus but students studying and needing a part or full time work will frequently be hired first because they frequently don’t present a job threat to management and are sometimes more responsible than high school graduates.

Not having a motor vehicle is frequently a sign of financial hardship, financial irresponsibility, and an increased probability or assumption of drug use so it is best to have some form of personal transportation such as a car or motorcycle.

Jobs requiring creativity and thinking independently will frequently require more job experience and more proof that you can do the job successfully. Your resume will become more important with more details about your educational background, achievements, and interests and hobbies outside of work. You may be probed rather thoroughly to determine whether you will be a good team player where being a team player is important.

Specialty skills jobs which don’t require much teamwork will more thoroughly probe whether you have the necessary basic skills or whether you will need some follow up training or education in your field of expertise. Enthusiasm for your specialty job and confidence in your ability is important to convey because selfmotivation is important when working mostly alone without much coworker emotional and skill support.

During a minimum wage job interview let the employer ask almost all the questions unless you have been working at a specialty for many years and are sincerely looking for a job with more pay or greater opportunity to move up in the business organization. If it is a career job then showing caring and asking about benefits and possible perks and advancement potential becomes very important. The job interview should be more of a two way street where questions are asked by the employer and employee and both hope to reach mutually satisfying goals.

One final comment is probably most important to note. First impressions last and you should show up for a minimum wage job interview neat and clean in casual standard clothing without a t-shirt. Career job and executive interviews frequently create a better impression with formal clothing for men and to some extent women too. Smile if you can where appropriate and give the impression that you are generally happy with your life and optimistically moving forward in your life.

CHANGE CHILD LABOR LAWS OR SHOULD TEENAGERS BE PERMITTED TO WORK AT REAL JOBS?

teens need jobs

MYTH: Teenagers should not work in the real world.

TRUTH: Teenagers should work about 4 hours a day in fast food places as cashiers and as factory assemblers in safe factories and in urban farming at less than minimum wage to instill a proper work ethic and gain work experience in the real world. Some skilled and valuable teenagers will  work at more than current minimum wage if they are productive members of the business. Real work experience in the real world will motivate them to learn more conscientiously so that they are not trapped in a low paying job for the rest of their lives.

School hours can be cut by 4 hours each day because students are not learning much of anything worthwhile in school these days. Liberal arts classes should be cut like music (band and chorus and theater and ballet and dance) and art ( ceramics and culinary and fashion design and creative writing and expository writing and journalistic writing and world literature and English literature and arts and crafts) and physical education or sports and foreign languages and history and social science and and political science. Students aren’t learning any useful skills which they will later need in life but will be just killing a lot of valuable time. Surely the school system can cut education in middle and high school by at least 4 hours!!! Over 99.9% of the students will never use that liberal arts education in their lives for useful skills on the job!!!!!!

The truth is that there should not be an arbitrary age of 18 or so before a teenager can work.  The truth is that many teenage children should be permitted to work in a safe environment such as a fast food outlet or safe assembly line work or urban farming for about 4 hours a day. Teenagers historically helped parents on the farm and there is no reason why the work ethic can’t be promoted in the society at large today.

They can commute to and from work on a scooter or be shuttled back and forth by their parents.  The truth is that many precocious children will choose to continue their education rather than work at menial jobs which should be quickly disappearing in the highly robotized society of the future.

Teenagers should be able to drive scooters and motorcycles which don’t exceed 30 miles per hour if they can prove their driving ability.  They should also prove that they are morally competent and realize the consequences of reckless driving with adequate testing and a handful of adult trustworthy witnesses which would include family and friends and independent government evaluators.

Enough driving dexterity develops before the age of sixteen in some children and mental stability can occur by the age of about thirteen for some early bloomers.  At thirteen some Jews become men in fact and not only symbolically by having a bar mitzvah. Women have a bat mitzvah.

In the old agricultural days children used to do hard labor on the farms and helped their parents make a living and learned to work hard.  It is time that teenage children start working again at less than minimum wage for about 4 hours a day at a part time job. Parents can shuttle them to and from paying work instead of to and from sports and entertainment activities in school which just waste a lot of time and energy and money.

Sure children will be competing with adults for jobs in the workforce and will cause many adults to become unemployed and destitute.  The unemployed and destitute will be provided with free further education in a technological field and support for their basic needs door to door by the government so they won’t be missing their minimum wage labor jobs very much.

Think and do what society expects you to do and by 18 you will be considered an adult.  What bullshit!  The world is filled with a majority of 18 year old adults who are behaving like immature small offspring and many are without jobs or stuck in boring and minimally productive lifestyles devastating the environment in their mindless overly simplified habituated and indoctrinated ways.

Most people are just another brick in the wall of egalitarian imprisonment with little hope of escaping it.
