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!!!!!!

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.
