I agree with you, I think that if Romney wins, the country will suffer. It will probably take about 21 years for his efforts to hit home, at which
point another president will be getting blamed for his doings. The last thing we need is for the US to become a third world country and Romney would
set us on that course.
There has always been an ongoing war between employees and employers. Not that all people that own business have employees, but they usually do. Not
that all poor people don't own a business, but usually so. What has recently happened to our country with the cutting of hours and wages are a prime
example of the upper class people not wanting things to be fair.
When there first started to be pay cuts in our country, or cutbacks, this effected everyone, but moreso the lower and middle class. People were forced
out of fair paying jobs and were forced to now take on a minimum wage paying job. Most people went on strike, and did so by collecting unemployment.
It was a way to make a stand and say that we don't want to work for crap wages. The employers strike back by cutting hours. They did this because
it removes the responsibility of them having to pay into a UI fund, and also eliminated the UI option. People that work part time don't qualify for
UI and employers no longer have to pay into it.
It was just a way for employers to regain control of all the money. Of course the lower class is the ONLY ones that suffered in this because if
employers have a full time shift that needs to be filled, all they have to do is split it up between two people and call it part time. It's a way to
make themselves look good because they get to claim that they have twice the number of employees, while they are only employing them part time.
I hear that now the majority of the public is getting food stamp assistance. You have to make less than $770 a month to qualify for some help and
about $500 income to qualify for full food stamp help. A lot of people are still unemployeed and most that do work still make less than $500 a
Since this damage affects everyone on a federal level, I'm really shocked they didn't work harder to try to get to the bottom of it all.
