Sorry bro.. there are a lot of professions that are not exactly "hard work" that make decent money. I make more than that and all I do is go out
and take pictures, create graphics at coffee shops and the occasional coding. Hardly hard work. Hell I don't even consider it a "job" because
it's fun lol. If there's one thing I'm certain about Capitalism it's hard work does not equal higher pay. It's often the opposite.
That's not quite what I meant. I am going to assume you're not in Government service, on Tax funded paychecks, at a time the nation is experiencing
chronic high unemployment and severe economic forecasts as routine, right?
If you're making decent money for easy work in the private world, that's the very heart of a capitalist system. The market pays whatever you do, at
that rate. Too many will make it pay less and if it becomes more specialized, paid more. That works and as a college student, I'd be a little
hypocritical to suggest that a healthy wage is a thing to feel bad about. (I'd better have one at some point with this debt)
Unless .... you're employed by the Government and within the center of the system causing as much pain as they're failing to deal with. White House
Staff, Congressional Staff and those near or at the top management of the major agencies, I have little sympathy for. My tax money has helped support
them all my adult life.
There is no more and my KID'S kids will still be paying this stuff off, assuming a nation stands that long of course.
In an age of cuts, it would make more sense to charge for the tour and actually MAKE revenue in a Federal effort for a change (gasp...it would stop
the presses, wouldn't it? lol..) than to cut tours while keeping ...Calligraphers? I couldn't even get instructors at school tonight to come up with
what they may do under that title and in that location. It's like the Horse Shoe/Blacksmith in Detroit after all the horses are gone. Still working
though.... A recent story went on and on about it. In Gov't,. it's just wasting our money, IMO.
