how does moving help

you will still have the same two options - move or get a job
or maybe only the try to get a job option

people with trucks will come by
knock on doors
and offer to take the trash for $x

the market will quickly set x at a fair price
and the problem is solved

CB,
The ones who need a job and would value the security of working for a government at any price. Remember, not to long ago governmental workers traded low wages for job security, that's what we need to go back to. Right now they have the best of both worlds. Better security than private sector and better wages and benefits as well.

Plenty of folks more qualified to be cops and firefighters who would be willing to work for minimum wage?

I'm a bit skeptical.

Over time the stock market has outperformed most other types of investments.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 12, 2012 9:14:30 AM PDT
Most places don't pay minimum wage for the jobs we're talking about.

you are a bit naive

in the long run every stock goes to zero

you are betting that you will get in low
and get out high

many folks retired and found the opposite
nobody knows when the high/lows will occur to time their lifespan to

so unless you live a long time
stocks are a bad risky gamble

if you live forever
you are guaranteed to lose your shirt

only guaranteed winner is the broker
always gets the vig whether buy or sell is done

But is there any security when they can just slash your wages at the drop of a pen?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 12, 2012 9:30:49 AM PDT
C. Batty says:
Yeah, and since you won't have another option you will find a way to pay the 200.00 per week.

Well, you can. All you have to do is provide your own water and sewage for less than the city does. Easy, right?

wont happen twice

some other guy will come by for 100/week
and then 50
and then 30
and 20
finally 10/week

we are paying only 7 /week now but we are not required to use govt
and we have competition by 4-5 haulers who want the biz
and that is two trash pickups , plus yard debris every week,
and recycle every week

and they provide all the containers

The government wages are still low. The government wages didn't change. What changed is that you all decided your labor was worth less on the open market.

No private company is going to pick up for 7.00 a week. Why should they? They can just let the trash build up until you are willing to pay more.

Remember, in this purely predatory market scheme you are setting up, you are the prey.

OK, I'm a bit skeptical AND a bit naive.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 12, 2012 9:37:25 AM PDT

Clearly not true so far, unless you're talking about the end of the world.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 12, 2012 9:38:04 AM PDT
I don't think that's correct. A lot of public sector workers make the same or less as comparable private sector workers.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 12, 2012 9:38:37 AM PDT
Also calling all public sector workers "lazy parasites" is clearly a biased, untruthful statement.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 12, 2012 9:40:06 AM PDT
I'm not an expert on the trash collection business, but obviously there is a limit to how low someone can go and legally collect trash. Minimum expenses would include the fees paid to the landfill, cost of the truck, cost of the fuel to run the truck, and cost of the employees.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 12, 2012 9:40:44 AM PDT
mine does

because 4 others want the biz and will do it for that too

that is the market rate

sorry the facts upset your fallacious wishes

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 12, 2012 9:40:57 AM PDT
