Why are you responding to a question I asked of dadiOH?

That's a very good way of putting it. Customer has her or his guard down, get's home, starts taxes as usual, and notices Turbo Tax Deluxe no longer handles a Schedule D, etc., without an "upgrade". I regard it as fraudulent (but I'm not a lawyer...)

Unit pricing on the shelf is alive and well here on the left coast, if you can read it.
The type size is so SMALL that you need to get on your hands and knees to read the bottom shelf.
Shelves at eye level are another matter. With some effort, those tags can be read.
The only way to realistically read and understand the info is to grab an item and find a scanner on the sales floor and read it.
These days, if I'm going to shop at a big box store, first thing I do is grab a sales associate, describe what I need and have them take me to the item.
Same thing applies to Mom-Pop operations.
Then their little taser type pistol takes over and reads the sales tag for me.
Everybody is happy. I get what I need without wasting time, the associate gets to demonstrate their skills and the company gets an order.
It's up to me to recognize when a reduction in size has been made since the last time the item was purchased.

Lowes margins haven't changed much in years, in fact they may have gone down some. Yes, their gross and net have increased with selling more and adding stores. Their financials seem to reflect a well run company.

Guys, this is NOT price increases.
This is inflation at work.
And it's about to skyrocket!
Who among us really believes or government can spend trillions of tax dollars without this happening?

Raising the minimum wage would save billions in subsidies to McDonalds and Walmart (etc) employees.

I'm not sure Back a couple of centuries ago (1963) I had a minimum wage job and was able to support myself, pay for college and buy a 2 year old car.
Today, many minimum wage workers are getting subsidized healthcare and food stamps.
What is different? See my other post bout inflation and comparitive value. My $1.55 per hour then is equal to $11.89 today. Minimum wage has not kept up.

How much per hour are the subsidies worth?

Food stamps, (SNAP) is $180/month, healthcare is about $500+ based on local plans here for a single. That works out to about $4.37 per hour for 40 hours, 4 weeks. Comes out of our taxes.

Which brings the total for minimum wage and subsidies pretty much in line with what you earned in 1963. You seemed to do OK, so why all the hullabaloo among the minimum wage earners for more money? They going to give up the subsidies (yeah, sure)?

Same here. My first full time job in 1955 paid $47 a week. That's equal to $412 a week now. That's $10.30 an hour. Washington has the highest minimum wage in the country and it's only $9.47.
Our state had a minimum wage increase a few years ago and the usual suspects - restaurant owners - were frothing at the mouth about the dire consequences. I talked to a couple of managers I knew and got their staffing and meals served statistics. Turned out the "catastrophic" increase amounted to about ten cents per meal served!
In todays paper, I see the Republicans are once again wanting to remove the estate tax for the top 0.2% of estates those with over 10 million dollars for a couple. 5 million for one person. But they hate a minimum wage increase.
I wonder how many of the righteous right on this news group get Social Security and Medicare while they castigate big government?

I'm still working (20% retired) and collect SS and have Medicare and a supplement. I paid into it and I'm taking it. My healthcare coverage has never been better. The SS right now is just fun money.

ME..ME. I do. But what does that have do do with anything? I bought and paid for those. Against my will though. If I'd had my druthers, I'd rather have eschewed SS and taken care of myself; I did anyway but could have done WAY better if I'd been able to use the SS tax that the feds forced upon me.
Ditto medical for most of the time. Now, not so much, costs have just gotten way out of hand.
What is it about big government that you find so endearing?
