From City to Farm – Technology Explodes Minimum Wage Debate

Lost opportunities from wage fight

Across Washington State and the rest of the country, the battle over hiking the minimum wage continues to heat up.

Governor Inslee proposes that our state’s minimum wage should be $13.50 an hour.

Seattle’s socialist City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant campaigned and won on a fifteen dollar an hour minimum wage.  SeaTac also has a $15 minimum wage.

New organizations are quickly springing up to promote the $15 proposal, each with a different spin.

Chicago’s Fight for 15 includes a host of other initiatives along with the $15 minimum wage, including unions and women’s rights.

15Now.org explains that Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz makes $9, 637 an hour, compared to his employees.

Minimum Wage Movement Comes at a Bad Time

But according to current research, this current minimum wage movement is coming at a really bad time for both employers and workers.

Forbes contributor James Dorn states, “Most employers cannot simply raise prices to cover the higher minimum wage, particularly in the competitive services sector.”

Others point to a “great uncoupling” in recent years, where the economy is growing through technology–but employment is not.

Historically, economic growth and job growth moved together.  But that has changed in the new millennium.

MIT Technology Review reports the “great decoupling”  which began in 2000.  The great decoupling is economic growth that’s accompanied by job loss, according to researchers Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee.

By 2011, this gap had become dramatic.  Brynjolfsson states that technology is behind both the healthy growth in productivity and the weak growth in jobs.

New Technology Explodes the Wage Debate

Labor costs are a primary catalyst to the recent demand for this new workplace technology–from inner city to the countryside.

Dairy farmer Kurt Johnson explains that he was first reluctant to introduce Lely’s robotic milking to his family’s VillaRosa Farm in Greenville, Illinois.

But his grandfather convinced him to check it out.  Kurt learned that, “The amount of money we saved in labor, would almost pay for the robots themselves.”

Oakville’s organic Austin Dairy Farm in southwest Washington uses DeLaval VMS robotic milkers.  An Organic Valley dairy,  the Austins have discovered many more benefits to the voluntary milking system of DeLaval’s robotic milking than labor savings–happier, healthier cows, more sanitary milking, greater production, and a better quality product.

Lely Barn Cleaner takes over the dirtiest part of livestock farming.  At the same time, it has taken over low paying, unskilled jobs.

Other new technology impacting minimum wage jobs moves from the countryside to the suburbs and cities.

The fast food industry, long a mainstay in entry level employment, is experiencing a new wave of technology that will dramatically change how fast food is prepared and served.

Momentum Machines states that “With our technology, a restaurant can offer gourmet quality burgers at fast food prices.”  Their Momentum Machine can make 360 burgers an hour, while custom grinding and mixing different kinds of meat for each burger, and freshly slicing tomatoes and pickles for every single customer.

Momentum states that, with their technology, restaurants can serve juicy charred gourmet burgers at fast food prices, in a more controlled, sanitary environment.

“Our technology will democratize access to high quality food, making it available to the masses.”

The Unifiller Unibot is replacing more entry level bakery workers, by creating machine decorated cakes that look hand crafted.

Lost Opportunities, Lost Values for New Generation

For all of the amazing benefits, these new technological achievements will remove a lot of opportunity–especially if the latest push to increase minimum wages speeds up the race to replace more people with machines in entry level positions.

Perhaps the most regrettable part of the loss of entry level jobs to technology is echoed in Ashton Kutcher’s provocative speech at the Teen Choice Awards: “I’ve never had a job in my life that I was better than.  I was always just lucky to have a job.  And every job I had was a stepping-stone to my next job. And I never quit my job until I had my next job.  Opportunities look a lot like work.”

In his speech, Kutcher listed his string of low-paying jobs beginning when he was thirteen, helping his Dad carry shingles up to the roof.

His list of jobs after that–restaurant dishwasher, working at a grocery store deli, and sweeping “Cheerio dust” in a factory–can all now be replaced by machines and technology.

What lessons will today’s teens learn, without Kutcher’s opportunities to learn the value of hard work in tough jobs?

Has the Fight for Fifteen thought about them?

  79. What are the advantages to buying a 1 carat tiffanyWhat are the advantages to buying a 1 carat tiffany solitaire ring? Tiffany lowest end 1 carat solitaire sells for $7, 300 and is set in an 18k yellow gold band.I don even think you have the option for white gold.I am not certain on the diamond specs but i would imagine that diamond would be vs2 and maybe within the gh color range.Are you just paying for the name? I know plenty of stores that sell a 1 carat solitaire, [URL=http://www.pdu-direct.com]true religion shorts[/URL] maybe si1 and within the gh color range for under 3 grand.These rings are set in an 18k yellow or white gold band. $4, 000 is a lot of money just so your fiance can go around saying she has [URL=http://www.pdu-direct.com]website dieses benutzers besuchen[/URL] an engagement ring from Tiffany4 years agoBest answer chosen by askerI personally have a tiffany ring.Here the gist of things, yes, the name comes with a price, however, a vs1 or vvs1 is much more worth a si1 because in a si1, when you looking directly into the jewel you will see either feathering or dark spots which are carbon.The gh color range isn that great either, i don believe i seen a tiffany lower then a f range, but then again, they may have it and not showcase it.I have a white gold band, it wasn specially priced for the band either.I don go around saying i have a tiffany ring.My ring is a bit larger then what you talking about but because the cut of the actual ring and the band are particularly noticable, people already know where my ring comes from.If you want to go to another store, try to stick with these guidelines.Nothing under a vs2(Vvs=very very slight inclusions, vs=very slight inclusions, si= slight inclusions i= inclusions.Inclusions are the feathering or black spots that can be seen in the diamond), try to stick with a D, E, or F in color, and try to get something with around 80 cuts [URL=http://www.ohs1985.com]Louis Vuitton Australia[/URL] in the diamond so that the light will refract better through the diamond making it much more blingy and bright.I had my diamond recut to 102(But then again, we know people with mines. )And in a movie theatre it catches the attention of people behind me because it catches any kind of light and reflects it through. The only advantage is you getting the brand name. My husband and i considered tiffany for my engagement ring(We sort of shopped together).We looked at a.4 carat H/VS2 diamond for about $8000.He went to a local jeweler and was able to get a.75 carat F/VS1 diamond for about $4000.Which do you think is more worth it? One suggestion:I wouldn consider anything below si range in quality and ideally, you want vs range because its awesome quality and because it not perfect, you not paying the high price tag.Personally, i feel h is a little low in the color spectrum for me.Go to a store that will order diamonds for you because what most stores(Especially chains)Stock in their stores are low quality. If you must go to a store, make it a local store.You get better quality for the price there.As far as affordable chain stores go, zales, if you are very careful when selecting the ring, has some decent stuff, although when i was looking at my local zales, they refused to help me. Some good websites/ examples of nice rings that are equal or better quality than tiffany for much less money: Just an fyi about”Blood diamonds,”If you done your research about them, you know it is nearly impossible to purchase a”Blood diamond”Any more.Google [URL=http://bestclarisonic.blogspot.com]Clarisonic Mia 2[/URL] the kimberly process and it will explain how most of the world has come together to stop the occurance of”Blood diamonds. ”My engagement ring was purchased at a local independently owned shop, where my husband negotiated with the owner over the price.When we went back to purchase our wedding bands, the shop owner just gave us my husband wedding ring for free!Also both our wedding rings were engraved free of chanrge.Local jewelry shops are the best!
