2sleepy if you want to start a thread about the high cost of beef go ahead.
But I'm not going to talk about the price of beef in a thread about the Apparel industry in L.A

This is the problem . The $15 min wage is emotionally appealing but not based in reality.

It's more reality from the point of view from business owners though so I don't expect the pro $15 crowd to read it ..

Waah waah waah evil left waah waah. Maybe first find the political leanings of your opponents before making dumb assumptions? I know the right isn't known for their analytical skills, but come on.

Your post was in response to the discussion about American Apparel and, as such, my reply was to that stream of conversation. At least make an attempt to keep up.

True; Lots more to American Apparel's story.

Many factors contributed to the ultimate demise of American Apparel, analysts said. Turmoil has enveloped the company since its board ousted Charney as chief executive and chairman in 2014, citing allegations of sexual misconduct with employees and misuse of company funds.

That kicked off litigation and a merry-go-round of directors and top executives that distracted American Apparel from turning around the business. At the same time, the rise of fast-fashion rivals such as Forever 21, H&M and Zara drew away its young customers, who were also cutting down their clothing purchases in favor of gadgets...

I started the thread and I didn't even mention American Apparel in the OP.
All you have is insults . Calling folks deplorables etc . Insults and being out of touch lost liberals the election and many seats of government this time around . If they keep it up they'll lose next time too .

I already said multiple times I realize American Apparel had a lot of issues . I've been following the company for years.
I know the political leanings of the left it's $15 min wage based on emotions and identity politics .

This, sadly, is true. Not so much insults (because that's really pot calling the kettle black), but being out of touch - definitely. That we are headed towards a mountaintop in a rapidly descending jet is definitely our fault. No sarcasm intended.

Yes, but you don't know mine (and I can assure you I am not as far left as you'd like to believe), yet assume you do. Like I said, the right has plenty of flaws all its own and one of the major ones is thinking they know more than they actually do.
