The landlords are coming; the landlords are coming!

IMAGINE we magically (without unions) mark wages to market (what the consumer will pay) -- could we hold on to the money?

"The landlord reaps what he does not sow." Familiar is the plight of the business that grows and grows as the landlord raises and raises the storefront rent. Ever more apartment renters in this country are gouged for everything they earn over subsistence. The Lord made the Earth and He's not making anymore. Also more and more rentals are going condo. If retail workers go from $500/wk to $800/wk, how much will the landlords milk?
