The Top 20% Have No Idea How The Bottom 40% Get By



July 17th, 2013

In a financial planning guide for its workers, the company accidentally illustrates precisely how impossible it is to scrape by on a fast food paycheck

http://www.theatlantic.com/business/...m-wage/277845/

How McDonald’s workers CAN’T live on their minimum wages: Fast food giant sets up website to help their employees budget better… and it recommends they get a second job

Suggested monthly expenses for the hypothetical McDonald’s employee working a 40-hour week include $600 for rent – a figure that has raised eyebrows among anyone familiar with the housing market in cities like New York and Philadelphia.

While it is still possible to find housing with three-digit rent in some parts of the U.S., an average apartment in Manhattan rents for about $3,000 a month. Even in the outer boroughs it is nearly impossible to come across anything cheaper than $1,400 a month.

Most people are broke because they do the same shit over and over again that broke people do...

Divide all the money up in the US and in 10 years the same people will be broke and the same rich people will be rich.

And that's why we are falling behind as a superpower. Because we are more interested in saving worthless jobs than in developing people to fill useful jobs.

Our education system has to improve. Our training and development of workers in the labor force has to improve, which I would hope could break down some of the union power as well. And we have to be creative about how to get people started in a career if low-income jobs are either being outsourced, automated, or filled by illegals.

And... of course, we have to start taking personal responsibility, but I sense that these personally irresponsible people probably won't try to better themselves no matter what we do.

When large Corporations found out that the social safety net can actually be used as subsided for low wages.

Or, when Wal-Mart would rather show their employees how to apply for food stamps then give a cost of living increase.

You're wrong, as usual again. Min wage mainly affects part-time workers usually teens.

There was a time a strong unionized work force provided the necessary training and education for the job.

The construction unions still pay you to go to their schools, and you work while in school.

Unions are not the issue. Unions train and educate their workforce on their dime.

A stronger union presence in America is one way to solve these problems without involving the government.

A union is nothing more than the workers using their rights of assembly and rights of free speech to use representatives to negotiate on behalf of the workforce, improving the benefits of all employees.

So easy to make you look stupid.

Myth: The only Americans working for the minimum wage are teenagers.
Reality: 63 percent of minimum-wage workers are adults age 20 or over. (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics)

About as stupid, probably less, as the tax graph you showed. Pot calling kettle again.

You do know I used the word part-time workers too right? That "usually" teens work part time as required by law.
More, due to unemployment being bad with our jobless recovery are probably working part-time now. And we have many more Mexicans who start out in the lower rungs. So much for Obama's policies working. Although, I don't know if I would trust govt numbers, they tend to fudge things when they want to meet a certain objective especially.
