Today On The Boochcast, we celebrate Labor Day. We talk about the origin of Labor Day, The continued popularity of Guardians Of The Galaxy and Lets Be Cops, what went down at the Respect My Hustle Urban Festival, Recap NXT, talk to NFLExporter Lance Goodman, and Women Smuggled Stolen Watches In Vaginas.
Issue: Corporations, job creators and even some workers do not respect our labor. Who's to Blame?
Though both corporate productivity and corporate profits climb, workers' wages remain stagnant. CEO's continue to see big payouts, even during economic downturn. Corporations are being accused of wage theft. America can't even get our legislators to respect our labor through increasing the minimum wage.
However, without the productivity of the worker you don't have profits. Why don't workers get paid more for their productivity? Laborers, they get no respect.
Is the government to Blame for not raising the minimum wage?
Would a $2.00 wage increase kill business and force them into layoffs?
Do you feel that a worker's productivity is not always worth a certain wage?
Do workers even know what their labor is worth?

Back in the day, over 100 years ago, the average worker had no rights whatsoever! In some cases, a 60-72 hour a week job was commonplace. There were no Child Labor Laws. A man of 40 years of age could be working next to a child of 10 years of age. Many children barely completed six years of school. We at The Coffee Club would like to know what your views are...In today's society, what does Labor Day mean to you??? Call us at 646-595-3275; the coffee is optional.
