Neocon: Read a detailed history of George Pullman and the Pullman Railway Car Company sometime.Short version: George Pullman did what the Left wanted. He provided his workers a decent wage and even built model towns with all the amenities for his workers to live in. But he also expected them, like a severe HOA might, to abide by a strict set of rules living there.Over time workers who saved money and managed their lives moved out and got their own homes they owned and such. This bred resentment among the less furgal and intelligent workers.It led to the first general strike in US history and that strike was brutally put down by the US government using the US Army..That “Living wage” crap doesn’t work. It is Leftist nonsense.
