Automation Coming To Restaurants, But Not Because of Minimum Wage Hikes

MitchDev Re:This is silly (656 comments)

"Raise those wages, and what happens to everyone elses wages? They go up."

No they don't. Not for regular workers and non-upper management.
The middle class lose ground when the Minimum wage goes up because prices go up to cover lost profits, and their wages don't budge, reducing their effective income.

MitchDev Re:Moral Imperialism (472 comments)

SHOULD BE doesn't meet reality very often, especially in cases like this.

Flight Attendants Want Stricter Gadget Rules Reinstated

MitchDev Dear Stewardesses, (406 comments)

Shut up and go back to being eye candy, you add little of value to the flight, especially with the tiny, crowded seats and filling them like sardines.

Add to that the overpriced snacks and drinks that have replaced free meals and the the colossal crimes against human rights dignity that is the TSA and you're lucky you still have jobs.

Thank you,
The American Flying Public
