These days even military families are collecting food stamps in record numbers, yet the US remains the world's largest and wealthiest exporter. During the worst economic crisis since the great depression the mega corporations are making record profits, while less than half of Americans even have a full time job and the jobs they have often pay nothing. Forty years of trickle down economics have only resulted in the rich getting richer, the poor getting poorer, and the middle class struggling harder than ever to tread water. It's class warfare and with Obama's reelection people are beginning to fight back.
The driving factor is the US empire is now the de facto global empire. The dollar is the basis of virtually the entire world economy and the US military is equal to the next six largest combined. Like ancient Rome the international conglomerates have run wild eating everything in sight and our government has become extremely corrupt. The solution is to regulate these conglomerates so they stop destroying the world economy and ecology, but that begins with Americans taking back control of their government to whatever extent is possible and recognizing small government and Victorian values are not a solution to the problem.
They suck, but somebody's gotta do them. People tend to look down upon people who work those jobs...but you must remember that we pretty much need them people. We can't all be CEO's. Somebody's gotta do the dirty work.
in these times a job is a miracle so should be treated like one
companies excuse to justify exploitation of unskilled people.
I think that if you choose to let someone else decide what you should earn, you shouldn't complain about the pittance they decide to pay you. If you really want to make money, you should be working for yourself, not someone else-- because your purpose working for someone else is to make them money. ;)
I prefer the ones that pay more.
Still pays the bills. But of course I want some more money just like anyone else.
Low wage jobs don't still pay the bills. When you need 3 jobs to afford rent and food you know something is wrong
I have no disrespect for people who have them I understand it's a must for some people
If you already have yourself set up nicely......<br />
Low wage / no wage jobs can be very rewarding and fulfilling...<br />
But if you depend on them for a livable income.....forget it...you will not be happy.
Great if you own the company. ****** if you're the unfortunate one punching the clock.
Terrible. People don't feel valued at all.
I think the employers who offer insulting wages should be beaten to death with their own audacity.
I would rather avoid them
