Thank You. That is a partial answer.
Now, you say you wouldn't take it back from him, so that leaves 2 alternatives. To complete the answer, would you go broke or send him away? Eventually, as you add other equal employees, that will be the ONLY alternatives.
As for your other responses, no links you have posted have had anything to do with what YOU, TBEEK, would do. That was my question.
Dumb hypothetical's are just that.
If you had 'really' read what was posted (if you really knew what you think you know, about me) you could have answered these q yourself.
Tell the truth iddee, your just mad because you never made the kind of dough (my definition of a "living wage") I'm talking about, yet I can tell that you feel deserving from all the sour grapes being spit out. And I suspect that you're 100% correct, you were more deserving. We all are/were.
As for what I would do.....well I think I'm already doing it right here by sharing/spreading a new/old paradigm. Like you I retired in 2007 and my body is falling apart so what I do now is about all I can do.
But I've got a long history of activism and agitation (our State and Federal elected know me very well) against the self-appropriated Powerful (the 'real' takers) among us and only regret that I didn't DO MORE when I was healthy.
How about you iddee. What have YOU done to make things better? For you? Your friends and lovers? Anything? Enlighten me please.
There are always more options than the 2 simple ones presented. As originally said, I wouldn't have placed myself in such a 'hypothetical' position in the first place. But if I were to find myself in such straights, well I beleive I have already answered this for you, "I'd" take the hit myself.
iddee; I've NEVER posted a 'link' to anything on this site so am not sure what you are talking about, I am however, eternally hopeful that the "individual responsibility" thing you all like to talk about takes over, kicks in and you begin seeking truth wherever it leads.
That remains a personal choice based on a personal worldview.
Now; Do you want to go back and answer some of the few dozen Q I've asked that remain unanswered? I'll be waiting :roll:
