    What’s his reason? My work already said we’re getting a max 3% raise and they aren’t keeping up with inflation,

      Mine said that inflation was only 4%, and we are lucky to get that much as a raise.

      My guess is that if they raise wages then they have to raise prices for goods and services (Or God forbid cut executive pay. Don't question it.) If the cost of goods and services goes up because every company is raising wages to keep up with inflation, inflation paradoxically rises because the costs go up. Then wages have to get raised again, and on it goes.
      The trick to solving inflation is to depress demand, because if people aren't buying any more, the cost has to go down to reflect that.

        Prices already went up. They have to pay the demanded rate in labor cost. Its no different than me demanding they don't increase the price of eggs because it will speed up inflation.

      Real inflation is about 7%.
      They give you 3%
      They keep 4%.
      That is "The System".
      However this year inflation is 25%.
      They are giving you 3%.
      They are keeping 22%.

Think about what that means. They brutally eliminate their native competitors and you wave their flag proudly here.

Its easy go all populist but the monetary policy isn't intended to centralize, if it were its pretty non effective. They're just a giant stupid bureaucracy that's run by law school grads who only care about intersectional politics.

    The idea is that when wages rise, prices also continue to rise, so inflation keeps on accelarating.

          neither of these will actually work, though
          our "betters" thought that covid would wipe out small businesses completely to pave the way for our corporate overlords to swoop in and save the day
          problem is, not everyone did so poorly, and some even told them to stuff it when it came to lockdowns
          now the government has artificially inflated prices, in tandem with the federal reserve and corporations
          not to mention all the food plants that have mysteriously caught fire
          or the cattle that have mysteriously died

                If they dont work that argument makes sense. But your argument was specifically abotu cheap labour.

                For example if cheap labour is used in agriculture it lowers the price. If they would use expensive labour the price would obviously rise.

      Inflation doesn't run away on its own, only a small amount of money goes into consumption. Rising prices itself lowers demand which results in lowering prices. You only get in during sustained shortages because its a relationship between wages and prices to begin with, i.e prices increasing faster than wages.

    Hey homosexuals,

    My name is Paul, and I hate every single one of you. All of you are fat, retarded, no-lifes who spend every second of their day wageslaving. You are everything bad in the world. Honestly, have any of you ever gotten any profit? I mean, I guess it's fun making fun of people because of your own economical insecurities, but you all take to a whole new level. This is even worse than buying shares on robinhood.

    Don't be a stranger. Just hit me with your best shot. I'm pretty much perfect. I was manager of my father's hedge fund, and vice president of his investment firm. What assets do you own, other than "cryptocurrency based on an animal"? I also get straight AAA S&P ratings, and have a banging hot girlfriend (She just blew me; Shit was SO stocks). You are all homosexuals who should just have a nice day. Thanks for listening.
