VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
True, our own country is selling is out with the downfall of the finance industry and the jobs taken overseas.
But, Americans need to stop whining and making excuses and get off their lazy butts and go to school.
We are screwing ourselves over with the lack of morals and party life instead of taking education seriously. Anyone can get a decent education and go from no where to somewhere if they want to. If they want to.
American kids think the thug life is cool. All about gang life or having fun with drugs, alcohol and sex. Dont complain that your poor unless your willing to study and work hard to make it.
It doesnt matter who is president. The descions you make in your life matter.
People from other countries dirt poor and become doctors and nurses in America and end up making more money that a lot of Americans. Why? Because they took the time to go to school and they wanted it bad enough.
Decisions, decisions. Do we keep our representative form of government along with capitalism and allow the rich to keep getting richer, the poor to get whatever, the middle class to shoulder the burden, and face those inevitable consequences? Or do we use that representative government to "tone down" the capitalists, share the wealth, and risk a social democracy, at least until the current economic crisis has abated?
I am alive today because of a heart surgeon who put in a pig valve and did a bypass. He is
worth every penny he earns. If somebody wants more money than what they make flipping
burgers then go to school and qualify for a bigger pay check.
who works for a fastfood chain ?

Well some people get even more measly pay than 18,000 and have to live with it.
Real pay, no benefits and not gov. assistance either.
Are you kidding? If you think minimum wage is $18,760, your sadly mistaken.
I have never earned that much! A single, divorced, working mother, raising 2 children w/out child support, I never made more then $16,000 a year and that was working an 8/5 and a 4/5. The most I ever made was $7 an hour and that was temp. Most low income jobs will only pay around $6. an hour or less. Employers know the tricks to pay as little as possible. About 5 years ago I worked for a retirement home and was paid only $5. an hour. The only way to reduce the countries debt and tax's is to stop paying people to have babies. I myself was the youngest of 9 in a welfare family. My mother, like so many others, had babies to increase there welfare checks. I seen what goes on inside. All anyone has to do is get pregnant and there in for a free ride, then they just keep having babies to increase there income from welfare. It is a way of life for generations of families. I know welfare was taken over by SSI, but things are still the same." In my opinion" if a woman continues having children while on assistance, they should be removed from the program! Stop paying people to have babies! The nations debt is largely based on this problem. Fight to stop this injustice on our tax's! Stop welfare families!
For all of these people whining about the minimum wage, no one forced you to slack off in life and not strive to get a better education. I worked lots of suck-a** minimum wage jobs while paying for my own college education. Now, I earn a good paycheck, because I worked hard and applied myself.
People need to stop whining an accept responsibility for putting themselves in their situations. About the only exceptions are those unfortunate folks who have worked hard and got screwed by bad leadership in their companies. Everyone one else needs to get over the "poor me" crap, stop expecting to get paid ridiculous wages for job that require no skills, and do something to make yourself better and more marketable.
Well, yesterdays paper had a story about Chipotle Restaurants. They have an excellent promote from within program. You start on the line making the burritos, and it's all upward from there depending on your talents and desire to succeed. Check it out, and no, I don't represent the company.
I put a link to the company website in there and the system wouldn't take it, so I see how the spammers get through by not putting their links in standard form.
The writer of this piece should not demean any labor position by saying a salary is Measley and may discourage someone from taking a position like this due to attaching a stigma to it. Is it the greatest salary? Nowhere near close. There has to be someone some where to do these jobs from ditch diggers to fastfood service. $18,000.00 may not be the greatest but it can put food in the mouths of a family.
Careers can be enhanced by continuing education.
