    once again mainly younger people and women (and hence children) will have to ‘make sacrifices for the good of the economy’……feel like a broken record bleating about this obsession with profits and growth so essentially the rich can keep getting richer.

    Minimum wage has never made sense to me. does it mean if i can’t earn it the next best thing is $nothing? does it mean if you cant earn it, i cant share mine with you? There should be a maximum wage not a minimum wage. The incentive to strive beyond that max should then accounted for in different terms, like… merit points? reputation metrics …eg facebook likes. (lol).

    Wow. What an absolute disgrace. That could almost pass as a piece of brutal satire, reminiscent of Swift’s ‘Modest Proposal’!

    I’m starting to feel like THE ECONOMY is basically the modern-day equivalent of fearsome god that requires sacrifices to be hurled into a volcano in order to keep life humming for everyone else. What’s a few low-income earners worth, if we can appease the Great Angry Gods of the Economy??
