Geez, liberals are stupid. Or maybe I just get saddled with the really clueless ones, I don’t know. In any case, in a recent discussion about income inequality, a whole horde of liberals wandered in from the rain to declare that everyone ought to make the same amount of money because, you know, equality and all. In fact, this one woman kept insisting that she deserved more money at work because she wanted it. I asked her how much money she makes for her employers and she said she had no idea, nor did she care, just wanting more was enough and they ought to give her whatever she wants, whether she’s worth it or not.
These people are idiots.
It’s an unfortunate reality that the people who want “equality” really don’t get how the real world works. The woman I mentioned above could give no reason why she deserved more money, she just wanted it and her desire should be enough to warrant it. She doesn’t get and doesn’t care that a business is in business to make money, not to make her happy. If she doesn’t like how much she’s making, she can either make herself a more valuable employee and get a raise or go elsewhere and find some other company willing to pay her the wage she seeks. But try to explain that to her, she freaks out.
It’s hard to understand where the disconnect comes in, why these people don’t get that worth is earned, not simply imagined. The same goes with “equality”, which isn’t earned, it’s just granted. The employees of Walmart in several states have announced a “strike” over Black Friday because they don’t want to work on Thanksgiving, they want more money, more time off and more “respect”. Then they shouldn’t be working retail, should they? That’s part of the retail model. Black Friday is often the busiest single day of the entire year and that’s been extended back to Thanksgiving. It is required that the vast majority of people work that way, it isn’t a secret, it isn’t a surprise, people who work retail know that going in. It’s part of the job. So why do these people complain? Because they want the benefits of a job without the potential downsides. They want the good without the bad. Sorry, doesn’t work that way. I hope those people get fired. There are always more people willing to do the job. Unfortunately, even if they do get fired, we have a system that will just pick them up and keep paying them even if they’re unwilling to work.
Liberals just don’t get responsibility.
