Bernie why don't you start by taking a pay decrease and live among the rest of us? Sell your homes and cars, I want to see more politicians do this! Get on the level with the people for real!

And when the rich run low on money and have no incentive to work what will we do next? Get blood out of a stone? You all know if you could own a business and made lots of money you would want to keep more of it cause it takes hard work people. I run a small business from my house it's just me and my husband and you have to be smart and on your toes all day and night there's no going home at the end of the day like others do plain and simple. So yes I do think I should keep more of my money and I'm not even close to having a million or half a million in the bank like most of these politicians do.

The idea that people have a choice where they want to work is absolutely absurd. It shows how Disconnected they are with reality. Despite the propaganda that people on welfare are just lazy bums who want to skate off government funds, the real data is available to anyone who has a computer. Go look at the health and human services data. Looking at the most recent data 75% of welfare recipients are CHILDREN. Next largest portion is 20% SINGLE PARENT households. And there are 1.9 million families spread out over 2.5 million, which means 60% are single child households. And only a fraction are 2 parent households. So despite the perception that lazy people receive welfare, a huge number are CHILDREN, whose parents are working and still their children are in poverty. Welfare is actually called “temporary assistance for needy families”. We need to educate people and stop this propaganda from spreading like wildfire. The perception that lazy people are taking advantage of the system instead of the truth that its working single parents and their children, who are still in poverty despite having a job... it’s criminal. And a company like Walmart who’s revenue is 486 BILLION, and who pays its CEO 25 million dollars a year, claiming they cannot afford to pay workers a living wage, is just absurd. Also they are one of the main companies that decades of data now shows, they make more money when minimum wages are increased. Guess what, when poor people get money we spent it. We go out to eat, we buy the shoes our kid needs for school, we pay our past due electric bill. Trickle down economics is wrong... but it’s also the opposite. So these companies would increase sales over the amount of ‘loss’ by increasing wages. Same with fast food chains and other mass consumption type of businesses. When you give an already wealthy person extra money, they invest it or save it because they can already buy whatever they wanted. So it makes me wonder why these companies (despite proof they’d make more by increasing minimum wages), are so adamant about keeping their workers in poverty? I don’t wanna be calling conspiracy on everything but it really seems like the intent is to make sure average people don’t get ahead. To keep the wage inequality gap growing and consolidate power in this country. Just sayin!

It blows my mind that a $100 billion family gets government assistance from tax payers. It's not conservative and Sanders is right here. Sanders is also right on the Wall Street bailout, big pharma and tpp. Sanders also opposed Clinton's gun control plan and opposed Bush's amnesty plan which is also great.

"It'd be great if people could move up the wage distrubution faster at Wal-Mart" You know...some people, and I'm sorry but especially in a place like Wal-Mart, often just are never able to move up. Whether it's psychological, physical, both... that's unfortunately not a choice that some people can make, and otherwise aren't willing to, because many people are afraid of responsibility and being sucked into a corporate engine that doesn't care and doesn't stop; and I think as you go up the chain of command, it gets worse and worse. People don't want to sell their soul. It's our cultural values which need to change the most. This capitalist hellhole is doomed to self-destruction, unless leaders begin emerging with new values which have the potential to change people's thinking on a collective level. Our thinking created this. We weren't aware of the snakes behind the curtains who whispered in our ears through media, society...telling us to cling to these outdated religions and beliefs about ourselves.. they made the changes they wanted to make while we were busy being distracted. The biggest distraction and biggest lie is the world as we know it today.

at 4:27 , the wages don't determine higher. it's the demand for their products, that will require Walmart to hirer. if their products are in high demand, what Wal Mart won't hire people, and they won't sell anything? absurd!
Eziel Dawnarow (1 год назад)
What is nuts is that they dont want to invest in other businesses that could benefit everyone else. If I were to be up there and I will, these selfish behaviors will not happen. I will create jobs in under developed countries by implementing hydroponic farms. I would even go as far as to give it to them and only ask for the refund of the cost of creation. US militaries and CA army would DEFEND those. Decent incomes would be given and no more shipments of food would be made. They would create stability and allow diversity to flourish. These idiotic wars would end if everyone can grow (up). There is a moral concern about sharing wealth because of frustration, but it kind of dissapears when you have enough wealth to afford a stable home with everything at a given time (work to earn). Anyways... gj Bernie.

whyamimrpink78 (1 год назад)
+Victor Espino Bernie wants to create a tax plan that arbitrarily taxes rich people more to spend on other people.  He wants to spend other people's money.  The Walton's actually earn their money.  There is the difference.  "but that service and job being provide require their workers to be on welfare. " Which is not the Walton family's fault.  They offer them a job at the market rate. They can't afford more.  It is not their fault those workers refuse to better their lives. "it's like me saying I'm providing a job I pay this guy 1 cent an hour" If you can find someone to work for you for 1 cent an hour than you have found a fool. No one will work for so little. "they're only asking for enough money to not have to be on welfare. " And where is that money going to come from? "the CEOs make record profits, billions, on the backs of their employees and providing their employees wages that require them to be on welfare. " And a lot of those profits goes to the shareholders. They want to see their investment grow.  If it weren't for shareholders than Walmart will be no bigger than Raley's or Hy Vee who pay their workers similar wages but no one complains about.  Also, it you were to take the top 6 executives of Walmart and spread their salary to the 525,000 lowest paid employees of Walmart, they will earn an extra $147 a year.  That's it.  CEOs are not earning that much. "if you can't understand that then, idk , it's pretty simple for me." That is the problem.  You are taking a complex issue and trying to make it simple.  I have said I wish liberal economic policies will work because they are simple. If all it took was raising taxes to provide certain service than I will be all for it. It isn't that easy though.  Take "free college" for example. We lack TAs, professors, tutors and other skilled workers.  Where are they going to come from?  How are we going to provide those services when we lack the people to actually provide it?  Raising taxes is not going to help in that case.
Victor Espino (1 год назад)
whyamimrpink78 who's other people's money?? once again who is it hurting owning three homes? the Waltons provide a service, that true. nothing wrong with that. but that service and job being provide require their workers to be on welfare. it's like me saying I'm providing a job I pay this guy 1 cent an hour. lol, that's fucking retarded. they're only asking for enough money to not have to be on welfare. if your service takes from tax dollars to function than that's fucked up. you should be able to run a business independent of government assistance. the inequality comes in at that point. the CEOs make record profits, billions, on the backs of their employees and providing their employees wages that require them to be on welfare. if you can't understand that then, idk , it's pretty simple for me.
whyamimrpink78 (1 год назад)
+Victor Espino It is though.  The Walton are worth as much as they are because they own half of Walmart, a company that actually produces jobs and provides goods and services to people. What does Bernie provide with his three homes?  How many jobs has Bernie created with his three homes?  All he wants to do is spend other people's money.  "our taxes pay for their employees being on welfare, because they don't want to pay their employees a living wage. " Walmart does not pay more for one simple reason, they can't afford it. 
Victor Espino (1 год назад)
whyamimrpink78 the argument is at the expense of who.. the Waltons make billions and dont pay the people that help then make those billions a living wage. those people hurt, then the middle class hurts because the Waltons passed to bill to us our taxes pay for their employees being on welfare, because they don't want to pay their employees a living wage. Sanders owning a couple homes is hurting who???

I love the one lady was saying "they should aspire to move up in the company" why? I work at walmart and if you move up to salaried management you start working 60-70 hours a week... If you divide into the hours you work by your new salary you are not making less then minimum wage. So no thats not the answer. Its so easy to say "oh just move up" well then walmart can take advantage of you in a whole new way.

Ante Bagaric (2 года назад)
I love when this chick near the end starts talking about 'going up' the hierarchy as - supposedly - some kind of 'solution' for anything? Hierarchy is *always* pyramidal. They can't ALL 'move up' the hierarchy; there always has to be tenfold of those in the layer direcly below, which means that 90% or more of the people HAVE to be at the very bottom. Most of them can NEVER advance; it is simple mathematical necessity, it is not logically possible to be otherwise. So when she talks about *advancing* to 'take care of their loved ones' - it's either sheer hipocrisy, or unbelievable stupidity on her part. Pick one.

+LordSear1982 In all candour, not everyone has the ability to do well academically and go on to succeed in a professional context. The truth is many - by no means all but many - jobs are nothing less than drudgery and unfortunately someone has to do them. They might be more palatable if they paid enough, but the nature of unskilled work is that the employer possesses all of the bargaining power. If America had a decent minimum wage this might be alleviated. Your anecdote is nice but it is not representative of the majority. Statistically, social class - that is the circumstances of your upbringing - will steadily and witheringly curtail the high occupational ambitions of many.
LordSear1982 (1 год назад)
EVERYONE has a choice, if your only outlook on life is "shitty job A, shitty job B and shitty job C" you're a stupid ass and deserve to be broke and miserable. Period! Its nobody else's fault that YOU made poor choices in life which ended up with your outlook on every job as a "shitty job". If a little ass 5 foot 8 Bolivian like me can legally enter the US, get an associates degree in Computer Science while working 2 different jobs while going to college, then end up making 64k a year working at a hospital you have NO EXCUSE!!! Americans are lazy, entitled, and have no value in education. That's why most of you are broke and miserable. Cause = effect.

Social Democrats always refer to Scandinavia as an example of rich society and high tax burden, implying that if Brazil raise its tax burden to 50% of GDP, will be in rapid Denmark. What they overlook is that the Scandinavian countries first enriched (the fact that they have not participated in any war helped a lot), and then adopted a welfare state. And with an inevitable detail: after this adoption, wealth creation has stagnated (as reported by the Swedish economist Per Bylund [4] and the Swedish Lucas also Danneskjöld [5]. Another thing that is not mentioned is the high level of deregulation of the Danish economy. You will take a maximum of 6 days to start a business (compared to over 130 in Brazil); import tariffs are the home of 1.3% on average (7.9% in Brazil); corporate income tax is 25% (34% in Brazil); foreign investment is released (in Brazil is full of restrictions); property rights are absolute (in Brazil, terrorist groups invade farms and justice invites to a coffee); and, horror of horrors, the labor market is extremely deregulated. Not only can hire without bureaucracy, it is also possible to dismiss without justification and without any cost. And all with the support of the unions, because they know that such a policy reduces unemployment. Estrovengas as CLT (invented porMussolini and quickly copied by Getulio Vargas) would never be taken seriously there. -Note: I am Brazilian and I tangent that this is an example only and if you want to pass to the reality guys, Americans, change text rates (but for all I know, will not change much).

at the end there that stupid girl basically in short said "I think everyone at one should just try to get a promotion" yay it's promotion day at Walmart now everyone's a manager and no one is just a standard employee yay! how fucking illogical is that? yeah fuck the people, the mass mass majority that just won't get the promotion and yet work their asses off. walmart can afford to pay reasonable living wage to their workers alright please just shut up and stop sounding dumb you're not solving anything telling everyone to just get out there and try! we don't need pep talks we need policies

Oh, and Mr. Reich, you stupid fuck, businesses were paying less taxes in the fifties and there were fewer social programs; that is precisely why they could afford to pay higher wages and workers could not afford to accept lower wages. If you don't want people on government assistance, get rid of government assistance. Finally, comparing General Motors to Walmart is absurd; you cannot compare the wages offered by an employer of higher skilled workers to an employer of lower skilled workers. The relative size of General Motors is wholly irrelevant.

A choice?? Do you understand the desperation that people are in when they go to Walmart for an interview and how Walmart EXPLOITS that desperation? Sure, it's a choice- with the alternative being even worse. That's not a choice anybody who has done everything they were told to do in their life should have to make.

Two points from me. Firstly I try to avoid buying anything at all from WalMart. They are a disgusting company selling cheap Chinese crap, while exploiting their workers, just to line the pockets of the parasitical Waltons. Secondly is that I sincerely hope that Bernie Sanders is the next president as he is the only candidate on either side who has consistently shown concern for the lives of ordinary Americans.
Preston B (2 года назад)
I've worked at Walmart (no longer now, luckily) and it doesn't matter that most of there employees work for minimum wage, they always have the bare minimum of employees possible. If minimum wage was increased, that couldn't force them to cut jobs because it's impossible to cut more than they already have. Plus, Costco doesn't seem to have trouble not treating their employees like dog shit, I don't see why it's an excuse for a company as rich as Walmart. Of course, this is just my experience at one Wal-Mart and it could be different store to store. But seeing how the decisions weren't from my immediate management and from the "higher ups", I doubt it.

How does someone who has a job and earns minimum wage even qualify for Medicaid and food stamps (unless they have a bunch of kids, I guess)?. In Florida as a single person earning $12,000 a year, you will qualify for $16 a month in food stamps.
Elvia Olvera (2 года назад)
That is EXACTLY my friend's situation. Working at Target, 6 days per week, 25 hours per week, minimum wage, cannot afford to rent his own room. Target cut his hours and hired more part-time employees, discontinued his insurance. He might qualify for Medicaid but does not qualify for food stamps. Fined $340 for not having insurance by the deadline.

They don't work full-time because then Walmart would have to pay for insurance for its employees. They get pathetic hours.

Employment wise and for the most part, Walmart is no different than any other major retailer. I know several families and friends that have worked or are currently employed at Walmart. It seems they utilize a fairly high percentage of part time and state subsidized employees in their workforce. In my opinion this doesn't help the local economy what so ever but only lines the pockets of the wealthiest family in America, the Walton's.

what an idiot walmart Is not going to refuse to hire people because the minimum wage is raised who is going to run the stores ?? certainly not the billionares / millionares who own them lol idiots

+byoself jstbcuz What he is suggesting it seems is more automation, but even then that's not enough of an excuse to pay people poverty levels of pay.
Peter Hall (2 года назад)
she talks about aspiring to and getting a better job within walmart. you always have more employees than managers. 12 people may have applied for those jobs but that is the state of the economy not a personal employment choice. if you pay people more they can afford to spend more, ironically it would benefit the company.
Thecanadianwitch (2 года назад)
they could pay more, it's that they won't want to. In canada the average hourly salary for a cashier in walmart is 10.65$. If they can pay 10.65$ an hr here, they can pay the same price in usa.

+Ben Chesterman the prices are still reasonable. costier than in USA but everything is costier here
Ben Chesterman (2 года назад)
Yeah ! But how much do they charge to the consumer . If prices a cheaper than competitors . The wages will be lower for the workers . Something consumers never understand why workers don't get paid much when you expect cheap prices

I currently work about 40 hours a week on 8.60 minimum for where I am at. I get about $1080 take home a month. Can't really afford to live on my own --> (my life if I was on my own) as rent is about $500 cheapest, and that's like 1.5 star hotel equivalent :/ A decent place is about $750 here plus whatever other fees and taxes gotta pay utilities especially since AC is a must here which runs about $120 a month if used in moderation during the summer all other utilities is about $100 a month combined though. $120 left for food, internet, cable, phone, savings, gas (if i could afford a car), car maintenance (dido), entertainment (ya like there is money left over for that), bus fare, looks like I'm living at the $500 place (so I can eat and get to work), would go to college (but i'm broke) :/ Maybe I could get a roomie and hope I wouldn't be robbed, hope I don't get sick because can't afford insurance really, pay Obamacare fine because can't afford that either. :TLDR: I got enough stress as it is that I'd probably die of anxiety if I had to live on my own.
Caleb (2 года назад)
Just to clarify though if you mean average and not minimum, cashiers in the states actually do make a lot more than minimum wage and are usually one of the higher paid positions within a retail store. Though the amount is always significantly higher.
Thecanadianwitch (2 года назад)
exactly, so imagine how horrible the salary is in the states. with a minimum wage pay, you should be able to pay all essential bills if you work 35-40 hrs a month

Only one person in that group isn't out of touch, You can't pay people so little when you make so much off of them and then hide your money so it can't be taxed so I have to pay your employees with my taxes so they can eat, and their kids can eat. This is wrong on so many levels...

Walmart will not benefit from paying a higher minimum wage but what they will benefit from are more sales due to more money in the economy.The country that will benefit the most is China because they make the majority of Walmart's products.The biggest benefit to Americans across the board will be taxing the super rich 1% and lowering the tax burden of the 99%.If you are worth 10s of billions of dollars the gravy train ends when Bernie takes office. Don't worry , the 1% have enough money to live a 100 lifetimes in ultra comfort and own anything their hearts desire from mega mansions to super cars.They will just make a little less profit a year.Boohoo billionaires but it's time to fix the planet starting with taxing those who have spent billions to make sure they can pollute,pay slave wages and buy political favors to keep their unethical money machine cranking while the families who make them richer starve.I just hope those billionaires don't try to kill Bernie.They would kill us all for a buck and Bernie twice for making them pay their fair share.Want to be a philanthropist?PAY MORE TAXES! EVERYONE ELSE DOES BECAUSE THE 1% WON'T.Go Get Em Bernie!

So basically the first guy is saying that the walton family isnt willing to make less of a profit for themselves and therefore the only outcome of raising wages would be to lay people off in order to maintain those profits.

I work at Wal-Mart and I want to say not only do most of the younger employees have to rely on government programs despite their working hard hours up to 12 days in a row but the older employees who could normally work a normal job, will seek disability because they cannot handle the non-stop work at Wal-Mart. I have meet four older employees who literally could  not handle, the no bathroom breaks and non-stop work. One out for kidney problems, one out for back problems, one out for leg problems. If you work at WM you are going to be moving constantly and lifting and with their creative, psychotic self serving to WM schedules and let's not forget their favoritism, the mental factor is another issue. I had 15 days in a row scheduled. I could not convince them to give me a day off. I called in sick one day which I  had planned and now have my first coaching. Of course I am looking for something else at a sane company. No full time, just 5 and a half hours , 5 and a half, 5 and a half so you get one break. Wal-Mart thinks it is cute but to be honest, the demons are winning.

Wal-Mart will hire workers regardless; they have work that needs to be done so they need workers. Wal-Mart skirts their workers of livable wages and the government picks up the tab; Wal-Mart would probably pay their workers in gift cards if they could.

+Jay Grey When I was a kid working at Sears was considered a good, respectable job. People made a career of it and retired. Your idea about "self esteem" just goes to show why we should raise wages. By a lot. Because a lot of it is simply based on perception. It shouldn't be, we should have respect for all people, especially those who provide us real value. But we don't, we respect capital and those who hold the capital whether they provide us value or flat-out rip us off. Knowing this to be the case we must raise wages across the board immediately. It's absolutely absurd that you would think someone doing a necessary job which provides value to an entire community would be required to have low self-esteem. smh. My country has gone straight to hell, I can't believe the shit I hear people say any more.

Hey you amazing Bernie supporters! Be aware that goldsilverandiamonds is a right wing loon who cuts and pastes all over Bernie clips.

If Bernie wants to stop corporate cronyism then why doesn't he want to reform the tax code or end the Ex-Im Bank which mostly helps Boeing and GE? If Bernie doesn't want big banks taking advantage of us then why doesn't he talk about the biggest bank of all, the Federal Reserve?          The Fed finances our government with new money which we all pay for through inflation. The Fed also gives new money to the biggest banks, which give it to the biggest corporations, next the 1% get the money. Again we pay for it because our old money is worth less. Bernie isn't telling the whole story. Either he is ignorant or he doesn't care.

THE TRUTH THAT BERNIE SANDERS WONT SHARE Bernie Sanders is not so good with details though his heart is in the right place... Does Bernie Sanders really know how deep these rich people are intertwined with our economics. Berni Sanders rages against the super Rich and its hold on the politics and the wealth of the nation. But how deep does the problem go?  How much control do these families have over commerce? Every top candidate that I have reviewed so far does not look good.  This includes Bernie Sanders. None of the candidates address the core issues: 1) Banks have taken the debit card concept and are inundating the economy with electronic money.  This means that secretly the banks have totally taken over the issuance of money.  This electronic money is counterfeit because A)There is no equivalent legal tender paper money in existence backing electronic money, and B) There is there is no law stating that electronic money is legal tender.  Therefore electronic money is counterfeit.  If banks recall every asset, every investment that banks have made, if you recall every single coin and every single paper there simply would not be enough to cover electronic money in people's account.   Now picture this: You go to a bank and borrow 300,000 dollars to buy a house.  The bank will give you a check for this 300,000 dollars.  Here is the kicker.  The bank does not take that money from any account. Whatever amount the bank had in their accounts before the loan and after the loan will be exactly the same. The bank literally went to a computer keyboard and created the money for the loan out of thin air.  But what happens if the borrower was unable to service the loan? In a foreclosure the bank will be able to trade this counterfeit electronic money for a real asset. While trying to wrap around your head around this scenario, it has already happened and it is ongoing. How do you think Nicholas Biddle was able to collapse the economy and blame Andrew Jackson?  It has been a practice since this country first began.  That is why the top has some much money.  In reality they own everything worth while owning.  Because this type of wealth transference has been going on for so long. Bernie Sanders is not aware of this because he has not shown that he knows.  Bernie Sanders will not be able to do anything about this.  None of the candidates appear to be interested in this issue because it is part of the American heritage: The lower classes pay taxes, in the form of interest, to some clever people at the top.  2) Bernie Sanders have not addressed the problem with the INCOME TAX.  The most extensive report ever done on income tax revenues is the PRESIDENT'S PRIVATE SECTOR SURVEY ON COST CONTROL.  This study claims that ALL of our income tax revenues are going towards paying interest on the National Debt.  So two questions have to be raised. The first question why do we need to issue treasury securities when we could simply print UNITED STATES NOTES and issue it directly without a debt instrument.  The second question is WHO is buying all these savings bonds? What are they using for money?  There is only 4 trillion dollars worth of paper money and we have a public debt of 17 trillion.  The consumer debt is 14 trillion.  So what are these people loaning and what are they using to buy these savings bonds.  Even accounting for the velocity of money it makes absolutely no sense. When you increase taxes using the IRS you are effectively opening your home for invasion.  The IRS system is based on fear and making you sign things under duress.  Is that a type of system you really want to live under? Now suppose Bernie Sanders goes about and closes all the loopholes for the Federal Income tax..  It would not matter.  All the money will still go to the trillionaire families. 3) These same trillionaires are interested in world conquest.  They may be motivated by ethnicity and they may be motivated by the idea of world conquest.  Having 600 million dollar  special personal jets or 35,000 square foot mansions or partying with 30,000 dollar cognac bottles are taken for granted.  To make their lives meaningful they looked towards world conquest.  The wars we see in the middle east is just for that same reason Does Bernie Sanders see this problem?
