So your telling the toilet scrubbers to stop complaining?
Haha what a joke. This thread is utterly pointless.
Why dont you rich folks stop complaining? You have everything yet you still have to open your mouth and talk bad on those who have nothing.
You deserve to clean toilets for a living buddy, then you will see the Truth of reality for once.

here is the real reality of it in Canada
they make $1300 approx a month minimum wage is around 8.00$ an hour
food is free from the local meals on wheels charity
clothes is free from charity
medical bills free
vision care free
they live in an apartment with 3 or 4 others who share the cost
and in the end have enough for a trip to Vegas once a year
The rest of the year they moan about needing more.
People on state assistance or Welfare get 550 a month salary
and they too moan that it is not enough

Minimum wage is not enough to live on still.
People do not whine and complain when movie stars and CEO's earn the tens of millions of dollars (now come on is anyone really worth that amount of money) but people whine and complain when the people who do the real work, the people who god bless them are there everyday to serve us our McDonald's ( How much does the CEO at McDonald's make?)
Instead of complaining about minimum wages going up start complaining about the folks making so much money they can't spend it all in several life times. Minimum wage at present is still not enough to live on.[edit on 26-7-2008 by ofhumandescent]

The population of Americans who are on their 'lazy bums' are probably comparable to the ones from your own country. There are many more hardworking Americans than there are lazy ones. And every country has it's share of drug users, and lazy bums. No one country has a patent on this, expecially not America. Your generalization is appalling.

Sorry I just found this humorous and had to single it out... I am pretty sure volumes of text have been written and hours of movies made documenting the unscrupulous way in which Microsoft got its start. While they did not "steal" their millions from anyone, they did nudge quite a few people out of the way on their way up the ladder.

Before you say "You could hunt or fish or stuff!" Um, yeah, if I shot at an animal it would be a raccoon or a opossum and if I missed, or heck if I hit and the bullet went through, I'd kill someone in another house/apartment.
WTF you doing hunting around houses and apartments anyways?
You get all camo'ed up and go hunting in the suburbs or what?
