Yep, 14 of them live in a two bedroom apartment. The $800 dollar rent is split 14 ways. Same goes for light, food, water, if it is not included, and any extras like cable or satellite. They usually work two or more jobs, unless they are in manual labor (construction, agriculture, etc).
So we should live like they do?
If you want to live like that I think you should.. I've lived in much worse conditions for far less money. Haven't you?
Stolen. I managed a restaurant at one time in Dallas. I had three applicants for cook come in with the same SN.
They pay 7 billion into Social Security every year. Don't try and tell me you won't draw Social Security.
Unless they claim many dependents . . . then nothing is taken out. Which is what most of them do.
As many of them as there are here and paying into the system with out getting refunds on their deductions the government would surely go broke if they weren't here paying into the system.
Umm . . . the government is going broke.
They pay sales tax,
Not on food. Sales tax on $3 used clothes at Salvation Army and Goodwill stores does not amount to much tax.
They are benefiting a charity and saving money.. Since when is that a crime?
If they are actually driving legal.
I know that there are plenty of people that are citizens that aren't driving legally but they still pay fuel taxes.
telephone and cable TV taxes,
Split between the occupants of their apartment.
... My wife and I split the cost of things we share. How is that wrong?
Alcohol and Tobacco, I agree with you.
..... Oh how white of you to agree with me. Thanks.
The country is more dependent on them than they are on the government.
You can't see what you refuse to open your eyes to.
Hey. That is the same argument for keeping slaves in the 1800's. Congratulations! ......... Where do you come up with that.... Please elaborate.edit on 19-8-2011 by hypervigilant because: (no reason given)
