  •  NO race to the bottom. (7+ / 0-)

    If the crossing guards weren't doing that, what would they be doing?  Going hungry and sleeping under bridges?   Working at Wal-Mart and collecting food stamps & Medicaid?  So does that make it right to underpay them?  

    Bottom line:  "race to the bottom" is immoral.  You can argue the economics until the cows come, but it's immoral to pay workers of any kind less than a living wage, and it's immoral to use someone else's bad behavior as a justification for one's own.

    "Minus two votes for the Republican" equals "plus one vote for the Democrat." Arithmetic doesn't care about their feelings either!
