Minimum Wage – Robots Replacing Workers

Saturday, February 8, 2014
posted by B-Daddy

The minimum wage laws in this country are daggers to the heart of opportunity for our poorest and least skilled citizens.  Those in favor argue that it helps the poor because they get paid more, and that there is no adverse impact on the economy, overall.  I disagree, but want to focus on the very people that the left proposes to help, the unskilled.  Take South Africa for instance.  The ministry of labor sets minimum wages in various employment areas.  But the labor unions in South Africa are closely allied with ruling ANC and they impose wage rates even on non-union sectors of the economy.  As a consequence, there is massive unemployment in South Africa amongst the largely unskilled work force, because they are not skilled enough to be affordable to businesses.

The history of Veterans Day dates back to Armistice Day and the end of World War I. To observe what we now know as Veterans Day, President Woodrow Wilson said Americans should “be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory.” Those words still ring true. I’m filled with deep admiration knowing we are blessed with the best military in the history of the world.

In this day and age, humanity is truly dependent upon technology for performing basic operations, keeping up-to-date, and, of course, entertainment purposes. It has marked our advancement as a civilization and our superiority as a nation in terms of frequency of its use. Whether it is a computer, iPod or iPhone, text messaging, video games, AIM, or the like, any form of technology lurks and predates the scene when one least expects it. Although these innovations have proven to be favorable in terms of research, improvement, well-being, and scientific advancement, there is an underlying problem threatening the way we function as human beings.
