"#18 | POSTED BY DANFORTH"
I truly hope you don't give anyone advice in real life as your analysis is scary stupid. So, in honor of starting the new year where we left off the last - by me continually kicking your ass in any discussion, financial or otherwise, I will give you a point by point breakdown of just how stupid your argument is:
"No, that's not true. She was your hiree."
I said common usage in English. For this - let's go to the dictionary:
def - "a person employed for wages or salary, especially at nonexecutive level."....so, strike #1 - YOU ARE WRONG. Words have meaning no matter how many times Liberals try to redefine terms like gender, marriage, or baby.
"IOW, assuming the mid-point, your big plan was to cut her hourly rate by 25%."
This is a moronic conclusion and factually wrong. I pay her by the job, not by the hour so 'cutting her wages' is not possible. Every time she cleans, I pay her $50. Could take her 1 hour, could take her 1.5 hours - up to her. So, YOU ARE FACTUALLY WRONG.
On a bigger picture level, she currently drives 10 minutes each way to do the 1 hour cleaning. If I had 5 apartments doing AirBNB, her commuting time would be a much smaller portion of her total time. In essence, she has economies of scale with her working/commuting hours while my cost remains unchanged at $50/cleaning. So, on a holistic level - YOU ARE WRONG.
"You're right: cutting their hourly wage by 25% doesn't help them."
And this last gem sums up why the Dems are poor SOB's on average. This is an unskilled cleaning position paying $50/hour because it is limited hours. Even if your argument above is correct (which we have already covered that it is not), I think most unskilled people looking to better themselves would gladly trade 10 hours/month at $50/hour for 60 hours/month at $37.50/hour. Only a lazy braindead Liberal would make your assumption that it is not worth their time to work 60 hours/week at $37.50/hour.
Again, do the world a favor and stop responding on financial topics. You only make yourself - and liberals in general - look stupid.
