Can't wait 'til you guys get this stuff figured out. I'm going to become a portrait artist and demand my living wage. It'd be pretty awful. Stick figures mostly. I'm pretty terrible at art. But since we're not worried about whether the work is worth the wage anymore, I figure what the hell, you owe me.
If I require an employee, I damn well better pay them enough to retain their services. If I don't, I'll go out of business.
Unless I can convince someone else *cough*taxpayers*cough* to help me pay his wage that is. Then I can have my cake and eat it too, and the expense of society of course. But **** society, greed is good!
What's so difficult for you to understand about that?
