Play with words if you want..you knew perfectly well what I was saying 2 jobs get you the EQUIVALENT if the $15 per hour job...you have to be willing to do time...
And those workers on that Ford line KNEW their jobs beforehand...I am sure
My point was and has been...if you want MORE money..work more...if the job you have doesn't fit your bill...move on or get trained...
And for the Parable... EVEN I have the common sense to have figured it out a lot earlier... The problem is looking at the money ALONE and not figure in the TIME... So ..cute but is a story that calls for a bit of intelligence and common sense...
If I need $1000 to pay all my monthly bills...why in hell would I work a job that pays me $500??? I have a choice... find a better paying job or.... now get this epiphany .... get an additional job.... A SUM is needed to pay a TOTAL... Math was good... understanding the point was the bad part... picayune comes to mind.



First, your math is off, unless you can work BOTH $15/HOUR jobs at the same time. That's a rate, not a sum.

Salary/wages/ compensation is dependent on many factors but an opinion on 'perceived worth' is not one of them. There are HR specialists who work in compensation. Paying workers so they have more money to spend as Ford did, is a GOOD THING.   In some economies, $15/hour may be a high salary; in others, it is poverty level.

Secondly, here's a story about workers and the  generosity of bosses:

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+20%3A1-16&version=NIV


It's Called the Parable of the Workers from the Bible. This is a hard parable to understand for many Americans.  I think the boss' generosity is incomprehensible to some. 🤔😊

Thanks for proving my point from a few weeks ago - don't whine if you don't check out what you are getting into! 😂

Yes, I am "picayune." I am PAID to write coherently. I work for digital marketing companies.  We learn language skills for a reason - to communicate ideas clearly.

I thank you.... I did not think we needed a Speech and Spelling instructor in these forums. It seems that someone thinks they are the DO ALL END ALL. I never had a problem getting my ideas on the floor with Congress...both House and Senate ( State ans Fed) as well as the Government Agencies I worked for and still interact with. My reports have no problem being "understood" and Legislation I have worked on are in the LOC. Sometimes I wonder about people who live in glass houses. I know I am not perfect (Having checked my hands, feet and side for holes) and I doubt the person who disparaged me, has NONE of them as well..... Amidala... ;)

Boom, there goes another one for team Mueller.  He has quite an impressive record in this investigation.  Draining the swamp one at a time.  Now don't stop till you get to the top.

Wonder if Trump will include some nasty remarks about Hillary or Obama in the message.

I thought Trump said everyone would get around $8k extra in their pay with the cuts.  Tell that to the farmers who's income dropped over 20% in one year......

It’s weird how all non Democratic presidents in recent history are all mentally ill and stupid.  Not just garden variety mentally ill and stupid but more like “stark raving mad” mentally ill  and “rock with eye sockets” dumb.   :D
....reminds me of the Weather Channel guy fighting off hurricane force winds while we all catch a glimpse of two guys casually strolling in the background.  Heh.

Why would you say that? Did you even read the article?

Bush1 was well respected - still is. Bush 2 was a little nutty, besides he had a poor command of English and he listened too much to Cheyney, but I've never heard anyone accuse him of serious, mental health issues. He handled 9/11 as well as could be expected by anyone, regardless of party. Eisenhower was fine. Reagan did have the onset of Alzheimer's. Nixon, on the other hand, had some sort ego problem - he wanted to be above the law. 🤔


 I think your generalisations are .... generalisations, and inaccurate at that.   The GOP has relished dissing Clinton & Obama just as much! 


An MD friend of mine, a classmate I've known for over 50 years, cautioned against Trump's mental health BEFORE the election. ( And she just read the article and publically agreed with the author. An experienced MD....) The people in the article are mental health professionals - they are experienced in their field. 

We watched the Netflix documentary about Trump with lots and lots of video footage throughout his life - scandals, affairs, marriages, divorces, financial crises --- his language and manner is the same throughout his life, deceptive, arrogant, self-centered, greedy. There is nothing new, or safe, about his state of mind.


A question .... If you are going to discard the findings of mental health professionals regarding their comments in the article, will you stop going to doctors altogether? Cardiologists? PCPs? Why trust any of them about anything?🤔 After all, they all come out of the same system.😉
