"New research" from whom!? The Communist party? Supermarkets make their profits from volume, not product margins.

When you raise the wages of bottom earners, they will shop. Those at the top have already got and they tend to save instead of spend.

Raising retail wages, raising the minimum wage would be a boon to the economy, not to mention the people. Small businesses might balk, but in time they'll see their sales go up.

You can have the most brilliant idea for a business but without the employee's all you have is that idea floating in your head. I have no idea who came up with the concept that the one at the top is more valuable than the rest, but that concept only serves a modern day slave mentality.

Sorry, but I don't think slaves got paid at all. If you do not like the job and the pay than move along. You are not a slave!!!!

the problem is a lower wage keeps people from buying certain profitable items in your store and buy only items that they really need soon the way this country is going there will be nobody in your store shopping because they will be to poor to shop and shrink will be higher because eveyone nwill be stealing to survive

This usually means raising prices to cover the increased wages. And, how about the people that already worked their way up to where the new wage is. Don't they also now deserve an increase ?
