Whether you support item pricing or not, it would have been beneficial to find if employment from this remained the same, increased, or decreased.
It's irrelevant. It probably will reduce the number of employees needed to put stickers on cans of peaches. The cost of those employees will be reflected in savings to consumers which will be passed on to their families who will now be able to afford college for their children who will then be able create new companies that employ many more people in jobs that pay more than what it pays to put stickers on cans of peaches.
If the objective is full employment, why not pass a law banning excavators? Then when we build roads we can employ our kids with jobs digging ditches with shovels. And hey, if that doesn't create enough jobs, we can pass a law banning shovels and make them dig ditches with spoons!
I really do try to be civil hear but, really, have any of you read anything about economics other than perhaps Karl Marx? The ignorance of basic economics here is mind boggling and the fact that we have elected representatives that introduce bills like this drivel is even more so.
