You are overstating what I said. Unless you are paying wages your opinion is really meaningless. The only opinions that are important is the employee and the employer in wage matters. All other...

1. The shareholders set the wages of the CEO to the same extent they set the wages of the lowerest paid employees. Like I said in a previous related response, when you own your own company you can...

Lol. I can tell all of these advocates do not and never will employ people. Your tune changes when you pay FICA taxes, workers comp insurance, federal and state unemployment insurance. Then your...

And, I forgot to address the issues of collusion and/or monopoly.
THe reason why restrictions on monopolistic practices, of which collusion is one, is that it leads to a undersupply of a commodity...

A gas station isn't a monopoly. If all of the gas stations "got together" that would be a violation of US anti-trust laws. And even if such a cartel did exist they are almost impossible to keep...

1. The problem with the living wage argument is that there is a vast group of people in this country (and world) that cannot produce enough to justify a living wage. That is a sad situation, but it...

But what is the "inequality"? A minor league baseball player enters into a contract willingly. They value their time/effort and look at the alternatives and decide to sign the contract. Their...

There is no such thing as a "living wage". There is only a wage. You produce a value and your employer pays you for that value. How you "live" after you leave your place of employment is not part of...

The Ford claims are just ridiculous. I know that the left wingers like to trot this (and Costco) out as an example of how companies are "better" if they just pay their employees more, but Ford was...

When you own General Motors then you can make the decision to pay the janitors as much as the CEO. The funny thing about these type of claims by people is that from my experience the business owners...

You are changing your argument know. Your argument was that the draft and other issues with respect to the labor agreement with the baseball union was wrong, and that players taht were not part of...

Nope. If the wages paid to illegal immigrants were higher, MORE illegal immigrants would cross the border. If wages paid were lower, FEWER illegal immigrants would cross the border. That isn't just...

Nope.........perfect knowledge is not required. Value in economics is a subjective opinion, not objective. So, the Twins thought BJ Garbe was worthy of the 6th overall pick in the draft and a 7...

I disagree with this racial way of looking at it. Should the NBA be looking at increasing the number of white players in the league?
Even if that was a worthwhile goal, minor league salaries...

Yes. If they were not paid just fine there would not be illegal immigrants.

He sued the NBA because he claimed the CBA prevented him from negotiating with other teams and it's scale lowered his earnings, and that he was NOT a member of the union that made the agreement.

1. With multi-sport athletes there is considerable competition between the sports. If major league baseball thought they were good they would offer them a bigger bonus. The minor league salary...

It doesnt matter what I think, nor what you think. I might even think such a situation is unfair. The problem is that is the law. For example see Wood v. NBA. Unionized labor has enormous power...

So they are paid just fine.
02-26-2014, 09:13 PM
Those aspects are independent of the salary of a minor league player and are determined by the collective labor agreement of professional baseball.
And while this may limit the "free market" for...

1. I have already addressed this. Most of the brand value of college sports is owned by the university/college. People pay to watch University of Minnesota football. Tens of thousands of people...

Seriously? People are not commodites but their labor IS a commodity. And, in the market for baseball talent minor league players are worth much, much less than major league players. To even make...

1. THe draft, trading, and wage scales are part of a collective bargaining agreement with the union. That point has already been made. In a way that is a market decision but it is fixed at the...

1. You are forgetting the per diem, which if the minor league teams had to they woudl simply convert into "wages". This eliminates the "minimum" wage problem. I also doubt that the minor league...

But you are their second mother by choice. If you were in it for the money you would not be a host mom. That is my whole point about the minor league players. They make the choice of playing...
