The fair price of labor.

  1. #1
    Why should some one like lanny* who spends only a few hundreds of kilo calories a few hours a day punching the buttons of her mechanical keyboard be paid twenty bottles of vodka while someone like an-gry onion* have to expend five times as much kilocalories for three times longer than that to get paid with the same amount of alcohol they both enjoy equally ?

    is this even fair ?

    how should we reward labor ?

    * - i used both lanny and an.gry onion as example because their the only few with documented history of having a job that i know.

    So you're suggesting that we pay people on a calorie expenditure basis?

    That's... So nonsensical I don't even know where to start.

    I guess people who are wheelchair bound should all have their wages cut in half?

    Pay should be determined by a random number generator

    Would the number be regenerated with each new job?

    If so, I'd keep applying for easy jobs and quitting over and over until I hit the jackpot.

    this is simply not true with things like minimum wage.

    i mean by setting minimum wages the rule supply/demamd has already been subverted, the question is why minimum wages arent set at y and z level but instead at a and b ?

    surely there must be something better that we can use to set wages other than supply and demand. it is within our moral obligation to do so.

    Industry has a lot to do with it. Someone who washes dishes may work just as hard as somebody who installs counter tops, but the dude who installs counter tops is gonna get paid way more because there's more money in the industry. And there's even more money in being a doctor, or a programmer who sits on their ass all day. The more educated you are, the more valuable and rare your skillset is. It doesn't matter what you're educated in as long as it's respectable.

    The rise of the proletariat?

    Marx predicted that like 150 years ago.

    Still hasn't happened.
