Are our priorities that messed up, or have we simply lost all concept of the value of our money?

 

Conversion rates for those unfamiliar:

That's approx $5.50 for the Starbucks and $1.50 for the song.

  • cause music artists (ie "rock stars") make millions of dollars, how much does the person at Starbucks makin your latte make? If they're lucky minimum wage? I don't buy music or Starbucks but I agree with Dard that the items are not in the same category at all...

  • The people who steal the music would steal the starbucks too if they could figure out a way to have a latte handed to them for free

  • I bought two lattes the other day and with tip it was 10 bucks. TEN friggin' bucks.
    It actually makes my stomach turn. It is such a ripoff that I am ashamed to admit I paid it. Now, only on Fridays. I cannot justify it.
    I wonder if the every day latte people have added up the cost per month?

  • I support music and do not drink coffee but I think it is a bitoff in the logic. The items do not fall into the same catagory

  • Sure, but it's not limited to coffee and music.

    So it's ok to steal as long as the person you are stealing from makes more than you?

  • I only drink coffee at work for the same reason I don't pay for downloads. There's a way to get it for free.

    Actually, I haven't pirated music in years. But I do only drink free coffee at work. AND it's Starbucks coffee.
