In a free market capitalist economy one CEO voluntarily pays employees 70k minimum wage because he feels is better for the well being of his workers and makes himself feel better that workers can make ends meet. He believes workers should get their fair share. And is successful at doing it and is running a successful business.


This is a counter argument for the low minimum wage conservatives argue. Is a high minimum wage better for economy and should all other corporations be better off by following what this guy does?

Conservatives fully support a private individual choosing to pay his employees more without a state mandate. Has nothing to do with minimum wage arguments.

Labor scarcity increases wages, not state mandates. Next door to me in North Dakota the starting wages at McDonalds and Walmart were over $20 an hour (pre-pandemic and pre-biden attack on energy) and oil contractors would come through the drive thru offer them a $1000 signing bonus to drop the headset and get in the truck with an 80K-100K a year guarantee.

Where in North Dakota?

I ask this since I live in Bismarck, the Walmart in the south store was paying front end employees 12.50. OGP/ODP employees 15 dollars an hour. (I know this since I worked there previously about a month ago before switching to freelance work, in both positions)

And the subway there 9.50 dollars an hour. Meanwhile both McDonald locations paying 12-20- dollars.
I highly doubt it's over 20 dollars an hour in any of the situations you just stated, I'd happily make a phone call, record it, and ask the wage upfront. Unless your talking about management positions, which then well, obviously that's going to apply but only very few can pick those up.

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

There's a reason we have a minimum wage. The second (to first depending on things) highest cost is labor. If a company can afford less staff, pay their workers less (there's a reason why child labor was prevented and a minimum wage was established and a work week) they absolutely would. There's a reason people aren't going back to their jobs after being fired. It's too little pay to keep them working.
You provide a job for the stability sake in a capitalist system, if you reveal how unstable your position is, how disposable you are, people are going to move on.

Minimum wage gives people a floor to stand on, it makes sure they can get you know... a home? Have necessities, live at least modest enough without too much worry, have healthcare covered. And enough money to cover more than just two months of rent and food and one medical cost problem.
Which by the way, none of that is true at all right now with current minimum wage.

For the too lazy to watch a video is this some kind of high end tech company or company that only needs a handful of employees? Packing boxes is a braindead effort, being the one to fix and reprogram the box packing robot...

Despite my opening part then videos on the matter
"The real minimum wage is zero"
If paying 70k then I am expecting fierce competition and cream of the crop to be the ones that get them.

    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
