Corporations are forgetting the wisdom of Henry Ford.  Pay the workers enough that they can afford the product they are building.  Ford paid workers $5 per day (in 1913) when other factories were typically paying $2.25/day.  It kept the workers loyal, well fed, and ensured retention.

I think you need to describe what Socialism is.

In the case of Francey pants, it's too many hand outs and not enough feet moving.

I read and was under the impression that they raised gas due to social programs needing more funding.

And the French protester's were also unhappy that they're dime was going to support social programs for the migrants.

Perhaps I should bump an old thread for this.

Today I learned the definition of socialism is, "too many hands outs and not enough feet moving".

Protests were the result of a gas tax hike that was proposed in order to meet climate change goals aka emissions reduction targets.  At no time was it suggested that it had anything to do with funding social programs.

In fact, the protests were largely because the increased tax would have a greater effect lower income earners because there were no proposals for offsetting social programs.

A product or service that is owned and operated by the community that uses it.

It's a good thing that Paris doesn't have a team that can go to the Stanley Cup finals.

TIL Reductitron doesnt understand socialism. Your's sounds more towards that of a utopian commune.

I think you're missing one of the fundamental building blocks of socialism and that being taking from the have's and giving to the have not's and those who "just do not(hing)". Similar to welfare.

You should look into what Will Smith's tax bracket in France would've been.

If France has open border's and migrants can automatically qualify for those and other specific programs for migrants, then it doesnt have to be suggested, it's just included.

In other words, you're saying unless it's explicitly stated by the media you trust, it doesnt happen or isnt a problem. Is that right? Nooo of course not...
