Comment on How Can a Teen Make Money Without Getting a Job? by Curtis Coburn http://chris.pirillo.com/2014/05/07/how-can-a-teen-make-money-without-getting-a-job/#comment-116639 Mon, 21 Jul 2014 07:06:03 +0000 http://chris.pirillo.com/?p=42120#comment-116639 I agree a car is very expensive to own. I’d recommend just using a parents car until you can actually afford a car yourself. I’m 20 and don’t own a car yet. Very expensive, but having a job is great because it makes some money which is always good to have. Try to convince your parents that having a job would be good for you.

Comment on How Do You Feel About a $15.00 Minimum Wage? by Joe Brinkman http://chris.pirillo.com/2014/05/12/how-do-you-feel-about-a-15-00-minimum-wage/#comment-116663 Sun, 13 Jul 2014 19:52:27 +0000 http://chris.pirillo.com/?p=42201#comment-116663 If we are going to pick an arbitrary wage, why stop at $15? Why not $25, $50 or $100? If everyone is so worried about CEO pay why not have a maximum pay as well? Or the one suggestion to peg minimum wage to silver – what is so special about silver? Why not peg minimum wage to the cost of a computer (in which case min wage should be reduced)? And if we raise the min. wage, what about the person who was more skilled than the min. wage worker who was making $12/hour? Or those who were making $15. You cannot just adjust the minimums, you also need to adjust everything above the minimum to reflect the increased skill of those other workers.

The only fair way to determine wages is to set wages based on the value created by the work being performed and the rate a qualified replacement would charge to perform the same work.

Comment on How Do You Feel About a $15.00 Minimum Wage? by David Bromilow http://chris.pirillo.com/2014/05/12/how-do-you-feel-about-a-15-00-minimum-wage/#comment-116662 Sun, 13 Jul 2014 19:50:27 +0000 http://chris.pirillo.com/?p=42201#comment-116662 The national minimum wage here in the UK is £6.19 for over 21’s. At present, there is a major campaign to get employers to pay a “living wage” of over £7 outside London & over £8.50 for those living in London. There are a large number of major companies that do pay the living wage although I do believe that forcing small companies/start-ups to adopt the living wage is a slightly wrong on a level that the small company is trying to compete with a multinational company that can afford to compromise with wage rises and the price of their product.

I know it’s not really a decent comparison granted that here we’re looking at a £1 rise compared with a $5/$5.50 rise. That being said, it will impact a lot more small businesses there compared to what it will here in the UK.

Comment on How Do You Feel About a $15.00 Minimum Wage? by June http://chris.pirillo.com/2014/05/12/how-do-you-feel-about-a-15-00-minimum-wage/#comment-116661 Sun, 13 Jul 2014 19:39:41 +0000 http://chris.pirillo.com/?p=42201#comment-116661 Either the workers get value from the work or the shareholders get value from the work. Where has the pendulum swung over the past decades? An investor can drop a dollar into a company and take out a dollar. Or a worker can drop $10 worth of value into a company and the shareholder takes their dollar, the management takes their dollars, and the company takes a chunk, leaving the worker with .50 cents on the value they provide for the company.

I’m NOT for the minimum wage. I think it’s an arbitrary solution that doesn’t get to the root of the problem. We have different castes skimming value from an economy while those that put their lives into building value continually take less.

My view, let’s do away with minimum wage entirely and see how companies behave. Then we can get on to the conversations truly worth having. Those about value, balance, and long term investments versus short term extraction of value from a super-complex system.

Let companies compete on their reputation when all the rules change. If consumers continue to let selfish a-holes flourish, then we deserve the society we have become.
