I'm amazed you haven't posted some idiotic cartoon.
Yeah, I am sure there is a price point. Actually, its probably not going to matter. At 15 bucks an hour it will happen sooner than later. It seems to me your holding down the idiot side without a picture. But, just for you cup cake

Thanks from Sabcat

What the socialists don't understand is that the state prematurely forcing things that would organically happen over time can have negitive, possibly catastrophic results. Instead of the people and the market adapting to these changes gradually the sudden economic change is a shock to the ecosystem. One that effects the middle class and below the most as they are almost always hit by things like first. They don't have the financial safety net that those w/ more economic wealth do.

IMO this is something that the state factors into these decisions as it creates more people dependent on the state.
Thanks from coke

That's what I mean when I say the Democrats are going to get their slaves back.

There is no magic bullet. Adapt is the only thing that can happen

That has been proposed by many people. Finland is conducting a trial of this.

The Ontario provincial government were also going to do a test of this but the public outcry against it was convincing to the pols.

I still have serious reservations about such a program. But we need a major overhaul of our economic system, which is dependent on constant growth and expansion. That is not sustainable.

The solution is fewer people, since there will be fewer jobs.

Yet globally we have policies in place that encourage population growth.
