Short post motivated by a comment made in the debate last night. Not here to argue politics but I will argue that new perspectives and new ideas are needed across the board – in business and in government. Just makes sense. We can’t run our businesses like we did in the 19th century any more than we can run our government that way.
But… during the debate last night Marco Rubio said:
“If you raise the minimum wage, you’re going to make people more expensive than a machine.”
Yes you will. And, as stewards of stockholder/stakeholder investments, companies should look for ways to increase profits and increase returns.
