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.

This is the natural evolution of capitalism. Workers should get together and say we're not working unless we run EVERYTHING.

Fark off businessman.

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

"It's about a $50,000 investment that we're willing to make on these new agents,

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.

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.

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

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.

I_Am_Weasel: 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.


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

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