I think you need to step back and think for a minute. Try walking in someone elses shoes for a minute. Even at 6.55 an hour who the hell can live on
that? Some people cannot help the situation that they are in and really are not in a position to be able to better themselves. I do agree that raising
the minimum wage solves nothing, but neither does taking such an abrasive stance like yours. I lost my job last year making 30.00 an hour and have had
a very hard time finding anything paying much more than 8 dollars an hour. That's a major slap in the face.
I'm really tired of hearing people blaming the poor in this country for the troubles the country is in. That's bull. It's the rich bastards that
run the big companies that are screwing us all. The company I was working for a few years ago was bought by another company. We were in a market for
roughly 7 technicians I think and 5 sales people. We had 5 techs and 20 sales people. The company that bought us had 5 techs as well and 15 sales
people. We should have had roughly 14 or so techs and 10 sales people. When they bought us they laid off 5 of us techs and hired 5 more sales people.
So they then had 5 techs and 40 sales people in a market that required 14 techs and 10 sales people. Their sales went through the roof, their field
support suffored horribly. They took all those profits and ran. They are sittin pretty somewhere.
Don't blame the poor. Most are poor and can't help it.
