The American dream
Haha! More like the American dreamer!!
Haha :) Hail fellow citizen ;)
Sixty %!!! Incredible....surely the main reason for working is to house and feed oneself?If the wage earnt is not enough to even cover the bare basics,then theres something very,very wrong.Good morning my friend ;)
There is something very, very wrong with America.
Its the same here in the UK too.
You're much better off in the UK than most people in the US.
That may be the case,but I believe both are governed by depraved minds.
United Kingdom (62,640,000) Australia (23,000,000)
Or underemployment. If you only work 20 hours a week, its tough to feed yourself.
I was down to 30 or 35 hours for awhile. That sucks.
Yeah, the problem is a lot of places have awkward schedules that make it hard to have a second job.
The minimum wage in the US is a joke. Here in Australia it is close to $17 p/hr. It allows even our lowest paid citizens to live with some small amount of dignity.
Redumblicans are idiots. Just about everything they claim would ruin America we already have here in Australia. We have universal healthcare. We have a comprehensive welfare system. We have as I pointed out a minimum wage more than double that in the US. Our universities don't cost anyone a cent up front. Any of our citizens can get tertiary educated regardless of their wealth. We also have some of the strictest gun control laws in the world!The list goes on and on. And yet Australian's have a median net wealth per capita 6 times that of American's. We are currently the richest people on the planet. 3 of our capital cities make into the top 10 most liveable cities in the world including the #1 spot. Not one US city makes it into the top 30. Maybe one day Redumblicans will wake up to their stupidity but I doubt it.
Yeah if drug dealing is a job.
There will be a lot more with the expendable cash that people will get. Obama is really just going to give everyone another black eye. They will have lower food stamps and higher health care in that they will make more.
