>Legislators in Wisconsin, Ohio and Iowa are actively considering relaxing child labor laws to address worker shortages, which are driving up wages and contributing to inflation.
First off, wages don’t contribute to inflation. Inflation is business refusing to accept lower profits when faced with increased costs, one of which is labor. Second, what they’re doing is making their own constituents poorer by using children to depress adult wages.
We should get them working in coal mines, & making munitions. Put those little fuckers to work. What could possibly go wrong?
Fuck it, let the kids be cops. Couldn’t be any dumber than our current ones
We have to ban books to protect kids, but let’s put them to work in bars since that’s a wholesome environment. Christofascists are weird.
These people are really setting us back
But why? The economy is crashing, there’s a recession looming, millions being laid off, unemployment soaring, etc /s/s/s/s/s
Cheaper labor is the only reason.
Labor shortage is just moron speak for “wage shortage.” Pay people more.
Fascinating how they would rather put children to work then relax immigration laws.
