    I think it used to pay much more in terms of purchasing power.
    And a lot of employers back then had pensions and other benefits to offer. Some had health coverage paid for in retirement.
    Now they have a 401K that you have to contribute to

    Then if that doesn't pay the bills, go find something else that does.
    The results of Obamacare. No full time, no loyalty.
    Some jobs aren't meant to feed a family on. Move on to something better would be my advice.
    Personally, I didn't put all of my eggs in one basket, I have more than one professional license in my wallet. I would use the other. Always have a plan B would be my advice.
    No, not really. Some of us just know that our ambition, ability to learn, and ability to adjust will always be our ace in the hole.

    I'm saying they are worth what it costs to live in the town they live in.
    A decent roof over their head in a safe area, good not fancy food and clothing and medical coverage. Bus fare or similar to get to work
    Anyone who works full time ought to be able to be on that level.

    Is it really?
    I'd guess that if your profession paid really good money people would bust down the doors trying to get the job.

    They deal with emotional responses. It's a weird way of thinking, but to the left, it's all about emotions, and they will make stuff up if they have to.

    Our employers contribute to our 401k also, so it grows faster. And my so-called pension might not be worth the paper it's written on.
    Always have to have a back up plan. Never count on anyone else for your survival. Ahhhhh, wait, forget it. Nevermind.

    Plenty of factories and smaller shops around paying decent, with benefits, lots of places to learn another trade, as well. The jobs that you talk about I'm imagining is the food industry. No one, even in high school, pretends that's a job with a future.

    And fwiw, the Tim Hortons around here pay 11 an hour, starting. Full time. Benefits. So please keep pretending to know about the plight of working class peoole.

    Never said they were worthless. Fast food is hardly cooking, in his I worked KFC and mcdonalds. It's worth the 7 an hour that high school kids could use for beer and gas money.

    If they serve me at a table, omg, it's NOT fast food, and a decent waitress can pull in pretty good money for the basic skills involved. It's like those victims you always whine about, it's like they got something. Oh yeah, INITIATIVE!! They wanted more money, so they stopped flipping burgers, and started waiting tables.

    hotel cleaners are usually in the same lot as fast food, it's just not a hard enough job to vaccum and change sheets to endure someone whining about the plight of the room service...

    None of these people are worthless, but if they aren't happy where they are at, truck driving will make them more money! Or lots of other trades.

    You, otoh, are pretty worthless....

    No that's absurd, you want to earn a wage that affords you those things you develop skills that bring those things.

    No they wouldnt, people have been told to veg out and dont work, interesting you sing the plight of the hotel room service and burger flippers, but think it would be wrong for them to go get a higher paying job.

    Think about this in the land of the free and the home of the brave. When this country was founded or even before it was a sovereign country people got on a wooden boat, sailed across an ocean to make a better life. No body gave a crap if you lived or died, you were your responsibility. Fast forward to the late 19th and early 20th century when we had a lot of immigration that your side liked to talk about. You got off the boat from somewhere worse, you went into the world and you made your way. That's what America is, rugged individualism self sustaining, dare I say it PRIDE. You guys bellyache if someone won't "give" you $15 an hour, is this what this great nation has become a long line waiting for someone to take care of you?

    Looks like Trump favors illegal immigration. Watch what he does, not what he says.

    The leftists have no concept of what a real full time job is. Their "feel good" intentions aren't anywhere close to the real world. Anyone that looks at the fast food industry as a "career choice" should stay right there at that fast food joint, because with that idiotic mentality, they probably have reached their maximum potential.

    A lot of those same fast food employees that your Liberal heart is bleeding for, are the same people who make their neighborhoods UNSAFE.


    So where does the handout/incentives end for these low wage workers? Free gas for their car? Free child care? Free rent? Pay no taxes? Free car to get to work? Free.....free.....free......screw that. Work your way up, or live with the position that you have put yourself in.


    Wrong. You are a Socialist on the highest level.

    Yes. This is what Liberalism has brought us.

    Nowadays, after the progressive movement has taken hold on our country, most of the foreigners don't come here for a "BETTER" life, they come here for an "EASIER" life.
    And we are expected to pay for it.
