Dont make an agreement if you dont intend to keep it.

One problem I see with this, it actually punishes those who live or lived within their means. I do not have anew, or even a fancy car, I do own 2 vehicles, both older. I bought my home with money I saved, nobody else's money. I do not owe any debts save for my utility bills, month to month, and that is it.

You make a very good point and I give you a star for that, but the truth is that what you describe is the capitalist American way. If you don't own your own business, then whoever you work for will pay you whatever they need to in order to make a comfortable profit and pay the note on their 500k home and their 50k car or truck too.
This practice is driving the cost of EVERYTHING higher and higher, while the wages of everyone who works their asses off is dropping lower and lower.
Small business owners today are taking advantage of the unemployment rate. My boss has turned into a damn tyrant because he knows that me and everyone else that works for this company won't be able to find another job in our field. We even had to take a 2 dollar and hour pay cut, while at the same time, the owner purchased the rest of the buildings on the block and turned them into apartments, AND he purchased 5 more brand new vehicles that he's gonna be able to write off at the end of the year.
dont pretend to post OK you collect rent dont you!
