Why Americans idolize business and downgrade labor?
If worker is complaining about low wages, the answer always is – get education, you’re stupid, lazy and so on. When businessman is complaining about business conditions, it always government's, unions or workers fault. I never heard anyone saying – it's because you don’t know how to run business, moron! I understand that business must make profit. However when worker refuses to work because wages does not cover his expenses, he is called lazy. Why it’s OK for business to pay taxes on profits and deduct expenses, when workers are taxed on expenses?
