>company hires wagie at 10$/hr
>wagie produces a commodity worth 5$ on average every 5 minutes
>profit is 60$/hr, yet wagie only gets 1/6th of that
>even factoring in supplies, maintenance, etc. wagie's surplus value is still heavily extracted
Does this sound fair to you?
>company hires wagie at 10$/hr
I wouldn't do anything for $10 an hour unless I was getting paid to fuck hot 18 year olds
Best I can do is $9/hour, I know what I got
>be factory wagie
>produce $10,000,000 worth of commodity every hour
>get $0.50 a day
>some asshole buys it and flips it for $25,000,000 at his twenty chain stores where his pink haired waitresses get paid $100 a day
Real weird this one
>Real weird this one
that's how capitalism works
At least it works
Works how exactly? By making the rich richer while the people who actually do all the work can barely afford basic necessities?
Don't work there.
>haha yeah bro just starve in the streets haha it's based
Wow, you commie advocates sure love to give up.
>being anti-wageslavery is le commie
Fuck off retard
It's not the business owner that floods the market with illegal immigrants. You wouldn't be called a commie if you weren't spewing your shit at the wrong people.
If you were really anti-wageslavery, you’d find a way to not starve while quitting the wagie life. You sound like a fat person that can’t ration food yet complains about being fat because McDonalds is cheap. Yes, MCD’s is cheap, so don’t eat all of it in one sitting and you’ll be skinny and richer.
You're missing the whole point, you shouldn't have to just eat rice and beans bro just have a slave diet bro when there's a handful of people with enough wealth to end world hunger several times
>there's a handful of people with enough wealth to end world hunger several times
There isn't. Most of their wealth is tied up in ownership of assets. Attempting to loot them sinks the ship.
>Attempting to loot them sinks the ship
Good, burn the whole fucking thing to the ground
No. My life isn't bad and I'm unwilling to sacrifice it. Continue suffering.
That's nice, now face the wall, lumpen
Found the fatass.
What are you going to do about it?
Violent revolution, starting with you
>kills fellow wagie
We did it Reddit!
>what are class traitors
What kind of work are we talking about? Putting a hamburger together?
Like it or not the people who make your food DO in fact deserve the basic things needed to live
>inb4 burgerflipping isn't le real job!!
If minimum wage actually increased with inflation it'd be 24$ an hour today. The whole idea was that ANY job was enough to support a single person. Instead of looking down on those who make a few dollars less than you why don't you go after the ones who make your entire salary in a day. They're the ones fucking both of you over.
Labor productivity hasn't improved in-line with inflation. The $24 an hour rate would just make inflation worse in a negative feedback loop. We're running into real constraints.
i like how retards like you think somehow factory wagies do anything of value. they're just the machines' aides. only reason they're still here is because some part of the process hasn't been automatized yet.
they deserve to be paid like shit
In the US taxes are almost as much as the wage. Add insurance required by law and the entire value of the wage is paid in expenses, before things like supplies, buildings, management, admin, advertising, etc.
the average restaurant worker makes about 3% for his owner. In other businesses the margins can be much higher, but on average it's very little.
go work somewhere else then working is completely voluntary. eating food and having shelter aren't needs either, needs don't exist. you simply want to keep living. so if you dont want to work for mcdonalds either get a job somewhere else or die, it doesnt matter.
>haha dont like one multibillion dollar megacorp just work for a different multibillion dollar megacorp its that easy bro
That's why Andrew Tate was so BASED. He paid his whores 50% of his cam business. That's why NONE of them sued him after (minus the two sluts that were recorded lying on camera)
You work at mccdonalds you'll get at best 2% of the revenue you make for the company
wagie puts the legos together
he doesn't produce much
Go down the street and start your own burger cart
You've read the Communist Manifesto, didn't you
Aren't you forgetting the cost of supplies, utlities, and rent?
The margins for fast food are ultra low.
why not just get rid of wagies and only have owners who own shares of the companie?
imagine a company is founded by two guys, they both have 50 shares and earn 50% of profits each. now one of the owners wants out so he sells his shares to two guys who now have 25 shares each and earn only 25% of profits each while the other owner still earns 50% of profits. would it be fairer if all three of them would have 33.3 shares and would earn 33.3% of profits even if the other owner didn't want the other two guys hired?
fair LOL.You retarded if you think anyone at the company gives a fuck about you.
I worked at a bank and there was this executive wagie with a plaque that read "100 million in sales". He probably made around 150k a year at the time. If you want to make a million, you need to figure out how to make someone else 10-100 million, and that's if you're lucky. Check out the earnings per employee at oil companies: 1-3 million each, and that's just an average. It's just the way this shit works.
Yes, now get back to work
>soon wagies will be replaced by automated solutions and the boss will own 6/6th of the profit.
Wages are set by demand for labor and supply of it, not the value of the goods that it produces. Wagies are paid $10/hr because there is another wagie willing to be paid the same rate behind the first wagie.
And behind them there is the illegal migrant wagie fine with working for 5$/hr or less.
Indeed. It seems to be a problem.
What is the wagie?
The wagie is the class in society which lives entirely from the sale of its labor and does not draw profit from any kind of capital.
Whose weal and woe, whose life and death, whose sole existence depends on the demand for chicken nuggets....
Midwit tier take
Unironicly zoom out
>worth 5$ on average every 5 minutes
>profit is 60$/hr
It's hilarious it took that long for someone to post this
Yes that is fair, wagie brings no skills to the table other than doing what eventually a robot will be capable of. Wagie also did not spend any time studying and has not put the years into the work force to understand how to create a business that is so efficient literal retards like wagie can contribute and wagie assumed zero risk in their role.
Only morons like wagie would think he deserves more.
>capitalists assume le risk!!!
The only thing they risk is actually becoming working-class lmao
Fuck off with this nonsense. A person, a regular human, creates a successful company and hires people.
The biggest problem I think you tranny homosexuals have is how you like to dehumanise everyone and put a label on them so that your make believe world begins to align with these fantasy figures. You even do it to yourself.
>A person, a regular human
CEOs have a nearly 1 in 2 chance of being a literal psychopath. All they want is power and control, you're fucking nothing to them. Stop defending these parasites you bootlicking retard.
However there is a 1/1 chance you're a tranny israelite commie
Undialectical, fuck off retard.
>Noooo, you're licking the wrong boot
>Lick my favoured boot instead!!!!
The utter state of capitalist critique in 2023, when will you accept that market economies just work and have infinitely better tradeoffs than any other economical model?
If there's profit then there's no incentive to start a business and therefore very few jobs. Shitty math aside, what you described sounds great compared to the overwhelming majority of the world being unemployed and broke.
Workers are perfectly capable of managing themselves
Unless you're talking about the borg hivemind when you say "workers," in reality peoples' levels of motivation, skill, and ambition vary wildly. Even if the organization starts flat, in human systems hierarchies will always form eventually, and the people at the top will rightfully benefit the most from the products of their organization. That's what happens when workers manage themselves. It's a natural and automatic process and there's no way to get around it. Improvements can be made in ensuring that merit plays more of a role in ascending the hierarchy, since reality isn't perfect and often people get into positions they don't deserve to be, but the basic structure will never change.
will you be ok with putting money into the business and not receiving a wage when things are going bad OP?
does the wagie have to pay for the upkeep, overhead, and other various costs in running the business?
fake and gay made up word used to control you and make you endlessly think and feel and seethe about what is deserved and to who
it's a nonsense rabbit hole that distracts from what is as what is is that there's always someone with more than you have who doesn't 'deserve' it and there's always someone with less than you have who does 'deserve' it
the balancing act is a useless exercise in mental masturbation
no-one deserves anything and everybody deserves nothing
just stop caring and stop waging and take whatever you want
