Why work hard for little to no pay when you can go on welfare and get the same money for no work?
A good full time minimum wage job will just barely cover the rent- you'll need to stack up 2-3 people in a small rental to afford food.

Since I seriously started looking for a job again, I have noticed this as well, and something else. Office manager, Admin manager, ect are also in demand, except they want at least an Associate degree for you to even apply. That is screwing me. I have 23 years experience, but no degree.
Doesn't seem like people care about loyalty anymore.
And the bus driver thing is huge in MI right now. They cannot keep drivers. From other drivers, I've heard they don't pay enough to put up with the kids crap anymore.

Right now it seems like the economy is bustling, but when does this turn painful? At some point these companies will have to decide to pay more, or close or raise prices. Are companies willing to share the wealth or will they keep trying to push things, will they just continue to price things higher and higher?
Where do you see this going?
I know a lot of people think that raising minimum wage will cure this, but I don't think it will.
I hate to say it but I think there are only two ways to fix things. Get rid of welfare except for the bare bone basics so all working adults work, and to really do some kind of immigration reform.
