The disgusting fact that we have the higest rate ever of children living in homeless shelters should say enough.

The elites have all the opportunities; the rest of us only have inequality and suffering.

Noted. but isn't this a chicken or egg question? And doesn't it ignore the fact that much of what corporations do is driven by the consumers, who happen to put a priority of low cost, driving the corporate focus on outsourcing and thus creating a self fulfilling prophecy?

Raising the minimum wage would spread the burden equally across business. We will ALL have to pay a few cents more per product but welfare and other payments will be reduced. You don't have to be an economist to see this.
