If they don't like their wage, they have options. They can work more hours, find another or a different job, change their life situation so they don't need to work, go to school, stop working and draw public benefits. There are options.
It's only when someone refuses to take care of their own business themselves, when they sit downnon the floor and throw a fit demanding legislative action to change the game for everyone everywhere, because they refuse to respond and care for themselves - its only then that I get angry.
Pay your own way. Simple.
We are in agreement here.
I am saying don't have 5 kids and get on every public aid program that exists.
If people need to eat at times, it can be a different story.
I just hear so many stories of people selling their food benefits to individuals, small restaurant owners, etc.
