Very, very simple. Increased wages = increased cost to suppliers = increased prices to consumers = need for more increased wages to compensate for the new increased prices = increased cost to suppliers = increased prices to consumers = need more increased wages.

GET IT?

Based on this analogy, how does anyone explain the success of Costco? There starting minimum wage is $15 compared to Sam's $7.00 per hr. Given a choice of shopping at Costco or Sam's, which store would provide better customer service, the store paying a decent salary or the store paying such a pitiful salary that it's employees qualify for food stamps?

And how do the prices at these two stores compare?

Another good example of stores being able to pay a living wage is Publix. They have always paid well and provide full benefits, including health care and stock options. Publix is always ranked as one of the best employers in Florida. If their prices were out of line, they would not be able to stay in business.

This article will shed some light on the differences between Sam's Club and Costco.

While we all tend to think of them as alike their strategy and floor offerings are not.

Before the civil War, the cotton and tobacco farmers paid no wages. They must have done very well and the cost to consumers must have been very low. Probably will never get back to that.

Get it?

That's right. The subject is that taxes are burdensome and some don't want to pay those services. Employees are burdensome and some want to pay them minimum wage. I guess some just want don't want to pay anybody else for their services. Sound selfish to me.
