I wonder how much money they had to borrow so their buddies can set up shop and teach us "debt and credit management"...
wonder if they ever stopped to wonder why so many of us have to be in debt and living on credit anyways.....

oh, that's right, they don't want to go there, since discovering the answer to that would make them realize that they might have a moral obligation to take less from the money pool!!!

I agree. Pay minimum wage workers at least enough to support themselves, or better yet, their families too. Then we wouldn't need so much for food stamps, rent subsidies, etc. and the workers can live with some dignity.

Of course, big business will HATE the idea of wage increases because they might cut into the huge profits which go to their stockholders and because their management might not get paid a gazillion dollars a year. When the minimum wage goes up even a little bit businesses say they can't afford workers anymore and threaten to move to Mexico.
