    • Legit question:

      Say minimum wage gets hiked to $15 like we wanted all along. What can be done to protect the "per hour" part of it? Reason I ask is because I've worked for Walmart and Sam's Club before. And when I worked for them, every time they gave us a slight pay increase, my hours were cut. In 2017, when I finally left for a 40 hour a week job, Sam's was paying me at $10.50/hour, but couldn't get more than 20 hours a week, if that.

        In places like retail, the payroll budget will remain the same, so workers will be required to get the same amount of work done in less time. The other option is to bring in two 20 hour/week part time workers instead of one, 40 hour Full Time person. The cost savings in in not having to pay benefits.

          I don't know how the costs would change for a company if M4A is implemented, but I'd imagine it could have a positive effect on hiring more people full time due to more standardized healthcare costs.

          • If Amazon gets some (ever-changing and unknown) number of complaints about a product or seller (say... of confederate flags, MAGA hats, or black rifle coffee?) they will boot them off the platform and charge them for the privilege of having their product packed and shipped back to their own living room. I can't do much, but I do have time to complain about objectionable Nazi swag.

              Sounds like a job for an automated crawler. Hunt for key strings and then spam the complaints server.

                I have time to spare, and good looks. Not brains, or talent. My great-great grandpa went on strike against the one-man drill.

                  • I'd like to think the events of the past few days have made conservatives and libertarians reconsider their notions of massive deregulation, "letting the free market decide," and the idea of private business being able to pretty much do as they please.

                    But I am probably dreaming and need to come back to reality.

                    • Regarding the happy birthday email that was sent out last week wishing somebody happy birthday, and was sent out to the whole company: the company store is now selling “happy birthday *****” T-shirts and mugs in honor of the event. $5 of every sale goes to the company’s charitable foundation.

                          Maybe reconsider demonizing government, too. Because it leads to, you know, mass groups of psychos trying to murder government officials.

                              • Many businesses have been affected by the pandemic. But to survive now, in my opinion, you need to develop on the Internet. You need to create a well-designed website or business application. People spend a lot of time on social networks, so there is a need to place ads. United States business emails must be used to find new customers. I hope the pandemic will end soon
