Employers who do not pay living wages contribute to criminality, and other public safety and public health hazards. At the public's expense. The good example of employers who do pay living wages, who encourage unionization, and employee control and empowerment, those employers who are our society's truest leaders, taking responsibility for their duty - their good example has been insufficient to inspire emulation. It is our responsibility to encourage our economic leaders, our business owners and managers, to take responsibility for their duties.
Even a cow kept on sufficient pasture is doomed to slaughter, and desires its freedom. Why do you permit employers not only in agriculture, but so many industries, to pay insufficient wages, to subsidize their bottom line profit with the public's money through welfare programs, including food stamps, health care coverage, and housing subsidy?
It is inconsistent to advocate for the benefits of worthwhile work and not require the performance of those whose work lies in the proper payment and management of employees. Laboring is worthwhile work, but so is management, and stockholding. And these jobs, too, are worth doing better.
