Cory Doctorow: “Stimmies killed the McJob” — The stimulus isn’t a living wage. Businesses that can’t hire workers because of the stimulus ought to pay enough to live on, instead of calling its potential employees lazy.

“If a company can’t afford to pay its workers enough to survive – to feed, clothe and shelter themselves – then it’s not a business, it’s a publicly subsized, badly run jobs program operated by a fast operator who enriches themselves at public expense.”
