But rest assured, those people who don't work at all get welfare and free housing and endless food stamps.

Shame on you for being an able bodied person!

Yeah, we have those too ... but for these scroungers it's called 'expenses' not benefits:

Member of Parliament for Rushcliffe, Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice Kenneth Clark's little snooze in Parliament during the Budget Speech ...

Caught bang-to-rights sleeping on the job would result in instant dismissal in any other occupation, but nothing happens to this lot when they blatantly and unashamedly sit there snoring and getting paid handsomely with taxpayers cash for it.

I don't understand how some people resent giving a few quid a week to people whom have nothing, but don't bat an eyelid that politicians are taking the absolute piss with their extravagant 'expenses' freebies.

I just got cut off my unemployment, I just hit six months, I'm part way through the school that I got enrolled in, the thirteen week extension congress is talking about right now would get me to the end of the school I'm in, but it just screwed me financially, I'm going to lose my apartment, and I might be couch surfing for a while. Finishing this school that I'm in it's my best hope of a new job.

I assume you're an adult. Do you believe an adult should understand the difference between your and you're? I mean you have time to make post after post, but no time to understand a fundamental concept of grammar?

I wouldnt hire somebody who couldn't draw that distinction. So stop whining and face the music. There isn't some grand conspiracy, the unemployable are just inferior to others. Life is tough.

I read your mewling. I guess Im just always lucky. I guess Im lucky to be up at 4 am working. Lucky me.


I have been working nights 6 days a week for almost a year, don't whine, your doing better than most, at least your up at 4 am working, those bills don't pay themselves.

I am thankful to be getting what I am ATM, there are a lot of folks here staying in shelters and on the streets.......it is not what I am used to seeing. Where I come from there aren't very many homeless, maybe because it is all but impossible to be on the streets in an Indiana winter, and Texas is not so bad in comparison.

Hell I don't know why, maybe they are on drugs, but I believe one needs a job for that, at least in my experience.

Yes so sorry this crap tablet messes with what I write, its spell check blows. It is a loaner until I get my comp back, whoever had this thing before me sucked at English.

Seriously grammar Nazi, every single news paper on the planet does worse every day, and their job is print, mine isn't.

If my spell check on a borrowed tablet is the best you got.....you got nothing.

Thank you come again.

GET A JOB AND STOP BITCHING.

Walmart is hiring. Circle K is hiring. McDonald's is hiring. Yes, they may be "beneath you", but don't complain about not being able to find a job. That's total BS and everyone knows it. I know plenty of people who are working crap jobs after making 6 figures in our bogus inflated economy of a few years ago. They sucked it up, grew some balls and got a job.

I have NO sympathy for the unemployed AT ALL. There are plenty of jobs available. You just have to tuck your ridiculous ego aside and take the work you can find. Like a man.

In the spirit of Pot v. Kettle I'd like to point out that there should not be a comma before 'but', 'wouldnt' requires an apostrophe, and you don't 'draw a distinction' you 'draw a conclusion' and 'make' a distinction. I wouldn't hire you either.

Just saying...

This sight is an international sight. Not everyone's language is the King's English and certainly not the Oxford dictionary of spelling or grammar rules should be applied to everyone. If they can make their thoughts known or the intent of their sentence structure deciphered then leave it alone or do not read if it offends you. Most spelling Nazis in my experience speak and write one language and because they have some inferiority complex have to flaunt their expertise because that is the only thing they are good at.. We have people at ATS that speak and write several languages.. An error in spelling or grammar for those who have took the time to learn another language is to be expected/tolerated IMO.. In defense of some posters the education system in the states suck.. No nice way of putting it.
Now back to the subject at hand:
There is a reason that the only times communism has really been tried have been after wars, revolutions, or coups. You have to have complete chaos for people to be willing to accept the garbage that centralized planning produces. Take the Soviet Union, for example. After two wars, famine, and the collapse of the Romanov dynasty, why wouldn't people wait in line for hours to buy a loaf of bread? Or settle for the gray matter that passed for meat in the grocery stores?

But communism's watered-down cousin, socialism, isn't much better. Ask the Venezuelans who cannot get toilet paper. Toilet paper ! Viva la Revolucion!

Contrary to what so many who believe in a "living Constitution" say, the Founding Fathers absolutely understood this. That is why the Constitution was set up to limit government power. (Memo to the President of these United States: the drafters of the Constitution deliberately didn't say "what government had to do on your behalf." They understood that that was the path to folly, fear, famine and death.

The power brokers will get theirs at the expense of everyone else as it has been since the beginning of what is called civilization. I tend to be one of "those" who believe that if the monopoly driven rules in the form of taxes and all their manifestations (that have been written to protect TPTB) would be done away with or totally restructured, the entire world would be a better place for all.

Is there some grand plan to turn the nanny state into some authoritarian world government ? There are those who believe that is so... We are not there yet but if the jobs continue to evaporate or more and more are unwilling to go where the few remaining jobs are located; maybe Russia's (and others) history will be repeated..? I hope I am dead and gone before that transpires.

Well done.

In two paragraphs you have identified two problems with today's America.

The belief in the "Conservative Entertainment Complex".

And.

The lousy educational system.

Go You!

An economy that is hampered from stability is not an economy that is going to create many jobs. The health care law alone has introduced a huge amount of uncertainty into the system and until employers know what is going to happen and what is likely to be the system for an extended period of time, they aren't going to be likely to take risks, and every new employee is a risk in terms of being a long-term expenditure.

And the health care law is just one uncertainty they are facing. There are a lot more we aren't seeing or hearing about that make employers reluctant to expand and hire because they can't make long-term plans because they can't count on what the rules will be.

This isn't going to get any better anytime soon. Certainly, it's not likely to get any better until 2016 ... maybe.

Nobody buys that Snake Oil anymore.

Employers are not hiring because getting fewer Employees to work more for less is highly profitable.

They are only looking at the bottom line on a balance sheet every quarter. "Looking Ahead" for them, is only three months.

Poking at grammar during an argument is irrelevant to the topic(unless said grammar confused the intended statement) and the is the last resort of someone with nothing else to retort. You really should just let it go.

Correction ... You dont' buy it.

My husband is in a position to do hiring, and he knows it. You can dislike it, but it's the truth. Businesses that are serious about staying in business think years down the road, not months and if they can't predict what their expenses will be, they get awful stingy about expenditures and investments of any kind.

Not really.

The problem is the Liberal Entertainment Complex.

After 70 years of it there are now more people broke,out of work, 'hungry' than ever before in this entire nations history.

And the lousy liberal system is the reason why.

Nobody buys there snake oil anymore especially when their go to defense of their epic failures in 'policy' is to blame every one and everything but themselves.

It's the business fault!

Not from where I sit since business owners are paying SS contributions,medicare contributions, unemployment insurance, workmans comp insurance,

Then they have to have a place to do business, and utilities, equipment costs, and everything else it takes to run a business.

Then they have to deal with that 'liberal entertainment complex' on a daily basis,plus all the regulation that kills employees pay, and other 'benefits'.

I do agree some peoples education is lousy.

But hey support corporate fascism anyways.

Employees need more money so they can 'live' and go out, and buy more corporate products.

Oh and them wonderful food stamps them corporations thank you for that especially the JP Morgans, and other corporate food retail outlets.

Guaranteed income.

I know plenty of people who are working crap jobs after making 6 figures in our bogus inflated economy of a few years ago. They sucked it up, grew some balls and got a job.

I have NO sympathy for the unemployed AT ALL. There are plenty of jobs available. You just have to tuck your ridiculous ego aside and take the work you can find. Like a man.

All pay minimum wage and that means still skint and still forced to claim benefits. The only difference is you're busting your buns for it. And so they move the 'goalposts' and now tell you that you now have to get two jobs, or three, or more.

Well I for one am done with jumping through hoops. I'll carry on applying for jobs but I'm not gonna carry on worrying about being unemployed. I'm sick of hearing what's expected of me and what I should be doing, talking down to me as if I'm not doing enough. So here's what I expect - I want a contract of employment with regular hours and a wage I can live on, nothing more and certainly nothing less. It is the least I think my labour is worth, it is the least I think anyone's sweat is worth.

I believe that if I work, I have a right to expect an acceptable standard of living in the society to which I contribute my labour, no matter what type of labour. I don't want a career and I don't expect daft wages for unskilled work, I just expect a basic standard of living. So I've decided that if I can't live on it, I'm not doing it. The minimum wage should at least provide a minimum living.

It's no good moaning about people not working when these minimum pay jobs are not secure, and won't get them off benefits anyway. Unemployed people are human beings, not fools.

I'll probably get jumped on for this post, but I really am past caring.

Yes, "the unemployable" should all be rounded up and sent to the gas chambers. Better hope you don't become one.

People can get very offended if you suggest to them, that they are being taken advantage by others.

Instead of acknowledging what is happening, or considering the claims or wrong being done against oneself, people are becoming defensive toward the people who present the information.

It's a case of shooting the messenger, because they know that they can even make a blemish on the group actually causing the trouble.

So people, refuse to believe the jobs are being systematically influenced in order to manipulate the populace. And they turn on their peers (low class/"middle" class) who make an argument that the abuse happening to us, because they know that if it's true, they sure can't do anything about it - and that scares people.

Nothing will ever change for the better as long as 99% of the population is fighting with each other about money, while 85 people own over HALF the PLANETS WEALTH.

We need to just be considerate of what people are going through and work together and keep an open mind always.

If you make between $0-$500,000 yearly, then we are all in the same boat - let's work together, not against each other.
