Stop Censorship Now

Anonymous asked: I don't know if you know this, but California recently raised its minimum wage and there is this bilboard that says "San Francisco meet your minimum wage replacement" with a picture of an iPad that says "Hello, may I take your order?" on it. This made me consider. If workers demand a higher wage, what's to stop capitalists from replacing them with machines like they threaten?

Well, on the surface what they’re saying has a grain of truth, but what they are actually trying to sell is a fallacy, namely that they would prefer to employ people than machines, and they wouldn’t replace people if they weren’t forced to by minimum wage laws. It’s an exercise in blame shifting.

If an iPad can do your job, then the major factor stopping your boss from replacing you with one is not the price of your labour - it’s the price of iPads. Ipads are infinitely preferable to employees, and they get cheaper over time while workers get more expensive. Not only that, they keep getting better and more efficient at what they do. Even if they keep wages low, the iPad will become the most profitable choice in a very short period of time, because of how quickly they lose value. They are attempting to hang a basic, yet destructive and highly unpopular feature of capitalism on minimum wage laws,  blaming the worker’s greedy desire for basic sustenance for something they were going to do anyway, minimum wage or not. So yeah, I think what you’re seeing is a cynical slight of hand, trying to blame workers for their own exploitation.

hey conzu, if that whole SobCon2014 Fall Session happens, wanna go see this premiere? i feel like this is definitely something that fits in well with the “i hate america” theme of that trip to los angeles.

(also, radetzkymarch, are you coming??)

Alas, there’s no way I can get ANY time off work right now, much less enough time to travel that far. :(  You kids cry over space feels without me.
