Wait... You mean the lifestyles of people at the top don’t automatically trickle down???

Tell me how that can be?
Because the people at the bottom that are willing to earn it work there way to the top and you’re back to square one. You have to earn it.

You should go have a cocktail. Today could get worse. There's other stuff I'm looking at as well. I know you like charts and graphs.

“Oh, 3 or 4....” poor Pete Puma, aka squeege is having a rough couple days. Forecast is for it to continue, and actually get worse. At that point, he helps himself to knots on his head. 🤦‍♂️ 🤦‍♂️ 🤦‍♂️

We closed production in Korea a few years ago... The main driver was not wage costs but the fact that very few people were willing to work in a production injection shop. We literally couldn’t hire line workers...

The graphs you posted give a hint as to why... Wana take a shot at explaining it.
You’d be surprised what someone will do if you offer them plenty of money. So you were dealing with a bunch a lazy asses.

Being “poor” in America is vastly different from true poverty in the rest of the world.

$50 a day works out to $1,500/month
I'm by no means a baller, but $1,500 a month doesn't cover my housing expense with no mortgage.

No doubt there’s a greater disparity in other countries then in the US. Many years ago I sold a business to some individuals from Uruguay.

They told me in Uruguay they were extremely wealthy but coming to the US they realize they were relatively poor.

Depending on which country $50 a day could be pretty good. What you have to look at is the cost of living.

Mr. Squeezer lives like a king, what comes to mind is the 1974 song from Seals & Crofts the King of Nothing

Yeah there are two sides to that coin.
There are places where one can live very well for $1000/month.




There’s a podcast called The Rebel Capitalist. The American host currently lives in Columbia, $3k/month and he has a daily housekeeper, daily chef that prepares his meals.

Not sure, Pete. Are you saying the country you just praised has a massive income equality issue.

How many lumps, Pete?

Hahahaha

Let me know how trickle down is working for your housekeeper. Or that doesn't count when its you exploiting the less fortunate? Does she have a living wage? Are you paying her insurance and taxes?

Trump and the democrats are teaming up to save everyone with free government money.

After all, that is the new "conservative" model!

Larger government, more spending, less self reliance. MAGA!
