Yes raising the salary would be great! However I have never seen that
happen, only minimum wage increases and those increases keep getting
closer & closer to being the same wage as people who spent alot of money
for an education & some working more than one job trying to pay back student loans. I have no experience
in finances so (just throwing it out there) is this part of why the middle class is disappearing?
People who have to pay student loans forever plus all the normal bills never seem to
move up....maybe due to over the years of increases on minimum wage & no one else
& seems that now a you need more than a Masters or PhD often to just get by...
I always thought that for it to be fair that when minimum wage goes up that everyone
should have at least the same amount of increase....like I said I don't know anything
regarding finances & I do need to learn as the above has never made sense to me...
Thanks for the thread & the info from everyone.
I do have to say when I first saw the thread title with the date, I immediately in my own
mind thought about the Extreme High Winds that same evening...Fri 29 June. I was
literally in it camping with many others at a sheepdog trial. I don't know the extensive damage
as I just got home...was in Bath County VA near Goshen VA. Bloody Hell was Scary as it just hit! The winds didn't build up ALL hit at once....won't
go into detail but just hearing about the extensive damage
kicked my brain into wondering...
Thankful I had power tonight!
