Point to ponder: If the Middle Class is destroyed, who will buy the products that bring profits to small and large businesses?
Shades of Henry Ford who, in 1914, said he wanted to pay his employees well because they deserved to share in the profits of Ford Motors (and so they could afford to buy his cars).
Today there seems to be a race to the bottom to reduce labor costs to slave levels. Unions must be destroyed so businesses can have free rein to pay absolute minimum wage. And, now we even begin to hear calls to abolish minimum wage laws so wages can be further reduced.
Doesn’t it seem self-evident that a slave has no buying power which will harm the national economy and bring harm to all of us?
Henry, Henry, where are you when we need you?
