    No, YOU have no right to know anything about the financials of my business. Thinking that I would just publish this information in an open forum makes you a weak troll.

    And what if I did? How would that mean anything to you? What do you have to compare it to that would establish the standard of living my employees have? Do you know that I can take a family of four to a decent restaurant (not a fast food joint) for a sit down meal, with drinks, for $40~$50US? Do you know that we pay roughly $400US a month rent for a 3 bedroom condo? Could you take that information, along with our employees salaries and figure out how well they are paid compared to others workers in Taiwan doing a similar job?

    Do you even know what the standard of living is here? Do you have any frame of reference beyond what the low wage conservatives like the Koch brothers want you to believe?

    Raising the min wage in the US would benefit the workers, their families and the US domestic economy. I fully support it.

    Normally I wouldn't bother posting another response to your weakass trolling but calling me a sweat shop owner really pisses me off. It is a personal attack that will not go unchallenged.

    I make $45 an hour. I do not pay my mom rent. I have zero debt. Your turn.

    We've already established that, my fellow capitalist.

    Are you saying that the Taiwan minimum wage is adequate?

    What do you think the minimum wage should be?

    I never called you a sweat shop owner, you liar.

    An example of a personal attack is you calling me a tea bagger, which is a sexual slur, which also makes it sexual harassment.

    You mean your mom lets you live there for free? I hope you at least take out the garbage for her.

    As a for profit business owner what else could I be?

    Context. I am trying to help you understand that wages are relative to where they are being paid. $45/hr would be very difficult to live on in Tokyo, for instance, but you could live like a king in Manilla. Get it?

    Quote Originally Posted by joe932 View Post

    I don't know. I think it should vary state by state based on the cost of living. Not knowing what those costs really are I couldn't say what that might be in hard number. I can say that someone working a full time job should be able to support a family and not need food stamps to feed their children.

    Wages for average working people have stagnated since the 70's while costs have not. Honestly, I don't know how people in the US can manage to even survive anymore.

    In those terms, no. That is true. You are implying as much, however.

    Also, can you explain why you PM'd me first, to ask me if I owned a bicycle business here, before you started making accusations about my mistreatment of our employees?

    Listen you trashy liar, I never accused you of mistreating your employees. All I did was ask how much money you pay them. Your lies will not be tolerated.

    No, it's called humour. A personal attack is something more akin to insinuating that someone is running a sweat shop.

    Your trolling is getting weaker.

    You PM'd me to ask if I owned a bike company and then you came back here and starting asking leading questions regarding wages. If you have an agenda other than just trolling just come out with it. Your other crap is played out.

    ...it's quite remarkable how quickly you moved from "near Fresno" to San Francisco. Did you have trouble finding an apartment there ?

    Are someone's feelings hurt? Go upstairs and ask your mom to make you a sandwich and tell you it's going to be alright. Honestly, I'm surprised she let you stay up this late in the first place.



    Oh, and let me know when you and your lawyer show up here. I'll pick you both up at the airport.

    ...sure, but they're getting a lot more aggressive with cavity searches at the Sac International airport. You might want to go through San Francisco.

    BDop, no offense, you're all right and all, the "brifters" thing notwithstanding. I think we are all cool with your second-world sweatshop. But Joe?! This guy has mad skillz. We are all just pawns here.

    We can agree to disagree on the 'brifters' thing.

    We'll get you briftering eventually. It's all good. You expats lose track of cultural reality sometimes. Back here in the States it's all brifters, all the time. The kids wear Brifter T-shirts, etc. It'll make it's way to Taiwan.

    That would actually support BDop's position. There is absolutely nothing dumber than what kids think is cool, this thread notwithstanding...

    I like downtube shifters.
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.
