It is in regard to your very goofy statement that we must do this for "youngsters" as though age 18-30 are youngsters. They are not.
Get your info right before you quote and complain. The law is for those 16-30.

No assumptions here.

The cheapest milk I saw in stores near me is $3.88 per gallon,

Seems plenty of room for the processor and grocer to make a good profit.

I can't tell if you're joking around or you aren't knowledgeable about how a grocery store works. They don't make profit on every item they sell. In fact, they sell many items at a loss.

Form 10-K

And then you have a company like Costco which sell all their goods at cost.

How much profit are they making on that $3.88 a gallon milk that the farmer recieved $1.33 ?

And they sell these items at a loss because people won't BUY them at the actual price they should be based on the cost of production...yet somehow you think people would be willing to pay increased prices for their food???

You tell me since you're the one with the numbers on that level. I showed you that their margins are low across the board.

Actually they do this so they can compete with farmers who can afford to sell them for less since they have less expenses. The idea is that if they compete with their prices on produce, the people who walk into the stores will buy more profitable items like cereal as well.
