A research group held discussions,

On minimum wage repercussions…

It’s set at “fifteen”–

They’d use a machine,

For a profit and lay off dozens!

Advancement to the better has stopped,

Obama’s economics Cropped…

Any chances

Of job advances,

Permanent are the “starter jobs” shopped!

Making money off burgers and fries,

Is hard when labor costs rise…

Razor thin

Profit margin,

Is harder when socialized.

Robots need no health plans,

Nor make expensive demands…

People won’t pay

High prices anyway,

Can’t afford the burger stand!

–Jonathan Caswell

An opinion post based on current discussions about minimum wage hikes and labor-saving robots.  This whole subject is not new—it’s been debated for at least the last 50 years or so in various circles…beginning I think with the automotive industry! –J.E.C.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
