$50,000 pays 100 workers? How will he find all those people if Romney cracks down on illegal immigration?

Oh yes, you're going to hire 100 new real estate agents if Romney wins. Yes, the housing market will explode just like that is Romney wins. That sounds totally plausible.

I guess if people are fleeing then it's possible, otherwise he's a liar.

He's assuming the first round of slave auctions will be pretty low dollar affairs.

If Romney removes the minimum wage to make us more competitive with China this could happen

The housing market will collapse when Romney makes houses less affordable by ending the home mortgage deduction.

Of course, when this bootstrappy business owner goes tits up because he likes to base his business decisions on political grandstanding, it will be all the governments fault.

"I'll hire 100 new workers if Romney gets elected, because he'll be a good friend to business."

"And if Mr. Obama is reelected?"

"Well, I'll still be hiring. Businesses gotta business."

"So you're saying the current climate is good for hiring? Obama hasn't been anti-business?"

"Well, I've been doing well, but...um...SMOKEBOMB!" *walks away*

"That was our dispatch from the field office in Derpville. Steve?"

Real estate AGENT. He could hire 10,000 agents and the economy wouldn't go up a penny. Agents are just leeches on society that actually do nothing and take a 6% cut of a transaction. Building a house actually creates a job, adding agents just dilutes the same number of houses being sold across more people. Actually, adding these jobs would actually be bad for the tax base. Existing agents would make a lot less and the new agents would make very little - so less taxes will be collected as well and numerous people will squander their savings (my sister-in-law did this) trying to start-up, but fail because of other agents flooding a market when houses are barely being built.

He is hiring real estate agents. They get paid on commission and some receive a very very small wage, so most of his expense will most likely come from training them.

Plus most will fail. In the end he will be left with about 20 agents. Who will also be looking for something better to do soon.

$50,000 pays 100 workers.

So $500 dollars a person. Da fuq?

How about you hire people based upon demand? You produce nothing, you offer a service. The service is based upon how well that person does their job and the demand for that service. Hiring people for the sake of hiring is stupid.

Plus the agents that you "hire" are 1099 contractors of which you offer no benefits and you take a cut of their commission. You pay them no salary so the risk isn't even close to someone that has a real business.

farking leaches.

Like a thief in the night, no one knows when the Red Menace will appear. It'll sneak up behind you, whisper sweet nothings into your ear, telling you you are smart, that you are beautiful, that red is your color and you should really wear that more often.

Fine, don't expand your business and take advantage of the improving economy. I'm sure your competitors will be happy to pick up your slack.

You know, the free market and all that.

As someone who's wife is a real estate agent, the owner of her agency doesn't pay her jack-shiat. So I am going to call shenanigans on this whole article and especially the bit I quoted above. The only way that MIGHT be true is if he's planning on moving to a new facility for their offices. But he's not paying agents anything. What a lying sack of fecal matter.

the category of "small business" depends on which industry it is in to determine the classification but generally it's 500 employees or less. I think he's referring to the cost of training them. They're real estate agents. He doesn't pay them directly (usually)

And that service is that they open the door to a house so you can look around.

Someone who makes their hiring decisions of who's in the White House - rather than the needs of his business due to demand and the incremental value of additional employees - will always remain a "small" businessman.
