So if you are managing a warehouse, you have lots of #people willing to work at a low #wage, you don’t need to look into hiring #robots to automate all the jobs stocking the shelves.
They don;t need to, but still they do it, like Amazon. Also, as they mention in the article, they also do it in China. Who cares if your workers are willing to work at lower wages if a robot will work for free, won't strike, and will payoff its cost in a year?
 

The #Wealth of #Humans: #Work, #Power, And #Status In The Twenty-first Century

And so the upshot of all this is that there’s just a lot of effective labour available to firms, and that reduces #labour bargaining power, it places a lot of downward #pressure on #wages as the way that we find jobs for all these willing workers. And ironically, if you’re an employer and you’ve got as many workers as you want at a low rate of pay, you don’t feel very much pressure to go out and invest in new labour-saving technologies. So if you are managing a warehouse, you have lots of #people willing to work at a low #wage, you don’t need to look into hiring #robots to automate all the jobs stocking the shelves.

#Economics, #neologisms, and #distraction from productive activity

source: https://noahpinionblog.blogspot.de/2016/06/some-stuff-economists-tend-to-leave-out.html

Asking the right #questions:
When is the last time you heard an economist talk about how minimum #wage #policy affects people's desire to feel like society cares about them? When is the last time you heard an economist talk about the need to include strong interpersonal relationships in GDP?

...
But as soon as countries get past the stage of abject deprivation, non-market goods and social preferences probably become a lot more important. By sweeping these things under the rug, economists are probably A) nudging policymakers to ignore crucially important stuff

...
Sociologists probably know more about how to do this, but they don't even post their working papers or blog very much, so who knows what they're up to?

#Uber Data And Leaked Docs Provide A Look At How Much Uber Drivers Make

source: https://www.buzzfeed.com/carolineodonovan/internal-uber-driver-pay-numbers
Uber says it doesn’t know how much drivers on its platform actually earn per hour, after expenses. Still, Uber’s internal pricing models, found in the spreadsheets provided to BuzzFeed News, do generate rough estimates of driver net pay. But in internal communications seen by BuzzFeed News, Uber explicitly discourages employees from comparing these estimates to the minimum #wage.

Wave system? Ah - wage system. #wage

Sane folk know that #capitalism works, and #socialism never does. Which would be why a Chris Hedges, he having been out in the real world for years, wouldn’t support any historic form of socialism.

Every attempt at some socialist permutation eventually fails, and the few places where ‘socialism with a humane face’ endures for any time are those lands where the population is 1) racially homogeneous, and, 2) culturally from some Christian heritage.

Having the very same racial and cultural character is critical for withstanding the heavy pressures which socialism imposes on natural folk. Otherwise, such a system comes apart in very nasty ways, generally after its leaders have committed successive waves of genocides.

Films For Action: The Invention of Capitalism: How a Self-Sufficient Peasantry was Whipped Into Industrial Wage Slaves

Arthur Young; 1771 Our popular economic wisdom says that capitalism equals freedom and free societies, right? Well, if you ever suspected that the logic is full of shit, then I'd recommend checking a book called The Invention of Capitalism , written by an economic historian named Michael Perelmen, who's been exiled to Chico State, a redneck college in rural California, for his lack of freemarket friendliness.

Mother Jones: I Was a Warehouse Wage Slave (Mac McClelland)

"Don't take anything that happens to you there personally," the woman at the local chamber of commerce says when I tell her that tomorrow I start working at "Amalgamated Product Giant Shipping Worldwide Inc." She winks at me. I stare at her for a second. " What?" I ask.
 
"Don't thank the Democratic establishment, the city's business leaders, the mayor's office or anyone in Seattle's ruling class for putting it on the books. This did not happen because the government suddenly decided to care about workers. We made it happen. We left them with no choice. They could either support us or be swept aside into the dustbin of history. That is how it's going to be." #meet the #fist-shaking #socialist #behind #americas #highest #minimum #wage.
