Labor is need for any organization’s activities, wages are meant to represent a fair return for the workers service. President Obama referred to many citizens living below the poverty line, with no means to get out for the lack long-term employment in their region, thus calling for a raise in the minimal wage. There have now come others to say raising the minimal wage is not the thing to do, instead they want to see more people moved towards the job market, increasing the supply of labor. Using economic analysis both sides want to justify their stance, only they are missing the real issue. If employment was based on economics, poverty would already be solved, so employment is not economic based. Wanting others to take actions, those attempting needed to control them, thus employment has become political and not based on fairness or humans rights only on who gets to pay authority off.
Working for a living is something we all accept, whether working for ourselves or someone else we understand money must be gained to pay for our needs. The problem comes when we attempt to determine the fairness of return, in monetary value for those services we offer. It is no shame for someone to work hard and gain only a $1.00 a day in wages, it is a shame that such wages do not pay for the expense of life today. Once they would have and gone further, in many parts of the world this is still a good wage, but even there the expenses of living are out stretching the living reality. These are not conditions brought about by laziness or worker’s fraud, but of the political ideology which has be used to blind people and take away their freedoms.
The poverty line exist on no map, one nation have sole ownership to it, thus as all nations conduct economics at least one should have had it removed by now, if that is what is governments wanted. But political control is not achieved by giving people peace and means to survive; political control is achieved by offering a threat which is used to bind the public to one central focus. The threat becomes over reaching and unless one is willing to make a stand alone against it, one must obey what the centralized authority states is the only way. Thus develops the trap, some say there is a technological trap but there is also the economic trap for just as technology takes hold of our lives so does the monetary needs we have developed. Control of the wages, if conducted by a standard supply-demand curve set, would be in equal regards to both sides, yet is not.
Labor is regarded as a resource, while the opportunity towork is made available only if labor always itself to be exploited. Big business set these rules long ago, passing the expense of operations to the consumers, but also cheating the labor force by not allowing labor to set terms. Today the minimal wage jobs are conducted on the bases of mass exploitation, with support the big business needs to use whatever ideology scares the public into support. Reality has already shown, this form of bias can not work in the long-term, the division between wealthy and poverty has only increased with the long-term use. Economic analysis justifies this reality, but only if we accept the corruption first, this means we have allowed corrupt political authority to enslave its own public.
Economics shows how our needs can be met in an equal and stable environment, but the mainstream theory leaves out one very vital component, the survival instinct. All living things have this survival instinct and as the economic spectrum mimics a living bioshere, there are within many structures wanting to survive through economic means. Playing fair with others disregards the fact they feel survival is at stake and big business felt itself losing long ago, so playing fair has not been part of any plan since. Instead, as the current economic crisis has shown, those believed to be at the top have only gotten there by the means of corrupting influence they held over others. Employment means taken away from the individual long ago allows poverty to exist, so infrastructure develops to supports while cheap labor is maintained to fit big businesses needs.
Poverty has become an indirect cause of big businesses desires to control the individuals through corrupted governmental authority, and still exists today based on the same. Areas previous suffering from so called poverty, were in fact quite cared for, the difference between then and now was in the past humans did not rely on monetary funds. This is a creation of centralized authority to keep a census of economic activity, thus given the ability to levy taxes and collect as the authority determines. Monetary funds allow for mass production which needs mass workers, and then mass consummation, thus monetary funds were used to control the public and force more labor to work. With labor forced into increasing in number, the public became a product, the more you have the cheaper the resources is.
Centralized control of the labor force regards individuals as products; this made to fit the mainstream ideology through manipulation of theory used as propaganda. Those who control access to the wages, control the use of monetary funds, for if you do not agree with the same political agenda you do not gain access to wages. In this regard you do not even have the ability to support one’s political choices in campaigns, unless one first has wages to spend on such. And as seen so many times before, this same control will easily revert to using violence as a competitive means to force more individuals into this resources mode. It has not been the labor movements which started out violent, it has been the big business which used violence to assure labor was doing all it was told, or it died off.
