    Socialist paradises:
    bleeding jobs and financial prosperity.

    America under Trump's leadership and conservative principles:
    Wages on the rise, household income on the rise, personal wealth on the rise, jobs plentiful.

    Think about this you left wing nutjobs. Do you want personal prosperity or the Democrats being in power? You can't have both.

    For an adult that is worried about the minimum wage, they don't have a wage issue, they have a skill-level issue.

    Those types can never get enough of other people's stuff or their money. When it comes to handouts there is no maximum amount. More, more, more, gimme, gimme, gimme.
    The pathetic bums are always begging for more.

    Yup, they need to at least move up from unskilled laborers to semi-skilled laborers such as truckdrivers ,waiters,taxi drivers,bartenders, security guards,etc.

    You’re being a moron as usual. Truck drivers make good wages because no one wants to do it. Being away from their family and such. No one is standing in line to be a truck driver. You can tell your a leftist ****** with your smug attitude.

    Just telling it like it is, it is a semi -skilled job and I drove for 30+ years which gives me a little insight. Yes even though it pays well most don't want the job and the shortage will get worse. Having Trump in the Whitehouse, you should be comfortable with a smug attitude by now.

    The semi-skilled truck drivers have bad driving records and are not the coveted, high paid drivers. Some of the rest of us are getting calls from former employers begging us to come back and work for them again.
    I've been in a high paid, highly stressful white collar job and have been recruited multiple times to do it again, but I have no interest in that stressful crap. So if you think that we are all just driving trucks as a default job you would be wrong. I'm a high paid truck driver by choice, not by default with no other options.
