Now you are claiming that SEIU, the NEA, the AFL-CIO, the UAW, et al, are working with employers and the government to restrain wage inflation? To stabilize employment and link wages to productivity growth? Hahahaha! That is so delusional it is laughable, Loadpants! Hahahaha!

Try taking Reading 101 before braying...the links are about where European economies have devolved, in some cases out of necessity, because of the prior group think, herd mentality greed of the unions...guvment and unions (think Obama) become too intertwined

Rumor has it that Democrats will include, at their up-coming convention, a proposal to increase the minimum wage.  As documented in a recent Cato study, such a policy is likely to increase unemployment, especially as I noted elsewhere among teenagers.   One would think that given how a weak economy is undermining Democrats’ chance to keep the White House, they’d actually make proposals to reduce, rather than increase unemployment.

Perhaps the most bizarre, but honest,
