What i am gathering from this thread is that the key to not being poor is to not eat mcdonalds and don't smoke.
2 super easy steps to get out of poverty! Economists hate him!
Seriously though, spending $20 a week on a cheap burger and a pack of smokes should not be a make or break decision.
The problem is not the burgers or the smokes, its the rising cost of living and the falling wages. Anybody who says differently is just trying to
validate their own measly existence. Working 40+ hours a week and barely having enough to survive is not acceptable. The moment we just accept it
and focus on staying positive while getting crapped on is the moment we, as a society, lose.
Screw this feel good crap, get angry, get pissed off, demand living wages and never settle for less. The more people that stand up and refuse to
accept the table scraps we are offered, the sooner the working man will be able to actually relax for once and not have to constantly worry about the
next rent payment, or where the next meal is coming from.
