Fred-What Rights (Constitution) are being protected by a govt mandated wage? As a people, I should be able to judge your 'effort'? Do you promote a socialist agenda?
Again, you follow a trend of not thinking ethically. If people have a right to life then they have the right to earn a wage that allows them to live properly in our society. A business should not be able to mandate what they believe people are worth.
Fred--The Right to life leaves you free to achieve or fail. A right to a guaranteed wage promotes, at best, mediocrity and achievement is by definition of a government.
And what about someone not having a fair chance to actually succeed? You are using fallacy to justify your point. Correlation does not prove causation.
Fred-Define fair. A mandated set of parents. A mandated upbringing. A mandated intelligence. Mandated ambition. A mandated level of achievement for all?
Why must I define fair? Do you believe a corporation should define what is fair? How are parents mandated? Do you believe pushing society to be more intelligent is a bad thing? Do you think achievement for all is bad? Again, more fallacy.
Fred-You asserted "fair", that you cannot or will not provide a definition leaves you no argument.
"You asserted "fair", that you cannot or will not provide a definition leaves you no argument". Again you use fallacy to try and prove a point. Try and think objectively rather than biased and I will continue the conversation.
