TOPIC: No_responsibility_works_both_ways

Original Starting post for this thread:
When debating conservatives about social responsibility, their most used fall back seems to be that there is no social responsibility, especially when it deals with wages paid to their employees.

Using that same argument, is the employee then not responsible for the continued ability of the employer to do business? If the employee is forced to turn to the government for support, that government must raise taxes, and it cannot take any meaningul amount from those it already pays resources to. So the government must tax the wealthy, and the employers who felt they have no obligation to society, no responsibility to pay a living wage.

Is this circular pain not self evident to those who feel no obligation to pay a living wage?

The same holds true for the existence of the FDA, EPA, OCEA, and other reglatory agencies. If employers felt a sense of responsibility, a moral obligation to make the safest possible product, with the cleanest means possible, these reglatory agencies wouldn't exist, there would never have been a need for them... A need of the people that the government answered.

Like small government? Then why do you empower the big government by improvising and hurting the masses?
