If retailers pay 25 an hour, than that 11 dollar office job is going to have to raise wages to keep workers, same as hospital orderlies, as well as myriads of other low paying jobs ...unionizing retail workers would create a chain affect on all other wages increasing them for the greater good and a functioning economy that serves the people instead of a big box or fast food chain...more spending power, greater competition for workers and a rebalancing from all the lost factory jobs. Retail can't be outsourced. When we mention unionized wages corporations always blame the worker for higher prices when in fact they should be making less profits for themselves and prices should remain the same. It is ridiculous to hear propaganda blaming employees for high prices when in fact with more buying power higher wages would increase company profits in the long run. If company ceos weren't so quarterly focused then they would see the benefits of paying employees well. Employees who are paid well consume more. Instead they want to take us all toward the inevitable crash of treating employees as a liability instead of an asset. You may only fold clothing gap kid but in all actuality please please tell me how the company could sell those shirts without you while the CEO spends 4 out of 5 days on a golf course and one day a week plotting how to fuck workers out of wages and benefits to get a quarterly rise and appear smart...they have no ideas, no innovation and no intelligence...nor do they work as hard as the kid folding a shirt for peanuts trying to make rent and eat. CEOs are overated hacks who probably locate headquarters overseas...and then pretend their company is a citizen spending billions to bribe politicians...if the spent half as much time investing in employees treating them as assets as opposed to plotting against them as enemies and liabilities...they might just be able to keep the economy up instead of running around every quarter doing damage control
