The cost of hired labor is part of the price I pay daily for a disposable cup of coffee at Peet’s.
Now, about that, something dawned on me. It’s that each time I discard my empty cup into a bin that is not on the property of Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Incorporated, I neatly avoid “incentivizing” Peet’s to include in the price of my future cups of coffee the cost of paying any employees to belabor themselves to remove the refuse I generate.
At a few street corners my city have placed at regular and I think convenient intervals garbage bins bolted to the sidewalks. And so I socialize *gasp* the cost of the coffee I consume. My city pay Marborg Industries, Incorporated to haul our collective trash…out of sight.
