In a depression / pre collapse due to a takeover of a government, do you really expect people to admit they are prospering by working under the table and not paying taxes?

The key is no debt of any kind. You could then get by somehow without ending up in the camps or jail.

What about Under-employed or collecting benefits and working a part-time job. My husband was in the semiconductor business, was laid off a year and a half ago, is working a little teaching at a local community college and collecting a little bit of unemployment. Your survey doesn't take into account all the scenarios out there. fyi

I replied "employed-low income" but I wasn't low income two years ago. I think more and more people will be "low income" as we get to the end of 2010.

Unemployment benefits will run out and people will have to get jobs at Wal Mart just to feed their families.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 905209


Only if Walmart is hiring.

Just because there are low paying establishments out there, does not mean they are hiring.

And in order to get a job at these low paying establishments
they have to give you an interview, and you have to get hired. And you have to be picked out of hundreds maybe even thousands of other people seeking employment.

Does anyone understand this ? Does anyone understand that in order to get a job anywhere they have to be :

1 - hiring

2 - give you an interview

3 - hire you

Please people understand this is what the unemployed are up against !!!

Fast food establishments work the same way.

<<no income/job, no car, was recently homeless.
 Quoting: *Shaun*


Don't let it get you down. I was homeless in 2000. Tent in a wooded part of park and maybe 2 or 3 pennies in my pocket. I went to a temp agency and got work, and at various jobs I worked my ass off for the next 5 years. I had some down time of a few months twice due to seasonal work but the key to it was I saved everything I possibly could. I got married during that time and my wife has worked on and off over the years, but never more than 25 a year and some years we made less than 10K between the 2 of us. We bought land in 2005 and built a house on it. No rents or mortgage.
Truth is people don't have to work years and years to own a home, if you do it the right way and save as much as you can.

Re: *^*^*^ WHAT IS YOUR EMPLOYMENT STATUS? ^*^*^* to follow up on Trinity's poll.
Greetings;

One important factor is location. Here in Houston a little goes a long way.

A man making say $80k in Houston is pretty comfortable. Take that same $80k to support the same lifestyle or better and there are not that many options.

I am grateful to God that I have a pretty nice job that I enjoy.

I wish more folks in The United States could enjoy a decent standard of living. Some folks are appalled when I say I wish all the money going to wars designed to make the fat guy fatter could instead actually go for the betterment of mankind. Of course it comes as no surprise that the folks so appalled are either (a) fat or (b) wannabe fat guys. Fat in this sense is not physical it is morally so.


Between the Military and their wars and the folks with their "War on Drugs" you have what amounts to the two greatest expenses facing The People. In return, The People send their sons and daughters to war many of whom die or are forever scarred. Some of their sons and daughters end up in prison and carry a record that precludes them of ever obtaining the dream because they used or sold "soft drugs".

Wars cost money as do courts and prisons, more "officers" to arrest more of The Peoples children because they smoke. As the judge takes a drink while pondering the fate of some poor young man, The People need to wake up to the fact that SOME PEOPLE think it is their place in life to tell YOU how to live YOURS.

It is not Conservative vs Liberal. Republican vs Democrat. It is THEM vs U.S.

Food 4 Thought

Re: *^*^*^ WHAT IS YOUR EMPLOYMENT STATUS? ^*^*^* to follow up on Trinity's poll.
I am self employed, work has gotten slow as I am only working 25-35 hrs a week where last summer I was working 40-70 hrs a week.

Many of the rental units are now sitting empty as people moved out due to losing their jobs and could not pay the rent.


One landlord has actually cut the rent by $120 a month ( was $550 now $430 ) to keep tenants in the houses.

I know another landlord that is charging $350 a month and if you sign a 12 month lease on a 2bdrm 1.5 bath house you get the 3rd 6th and 9th month free( no rent due those months)..

Been trying to get into middle class for 30 years.blessings, all

"While the government has a definition for being poor (in 1999 it was
income of less than $17,029 for a family of four), it does not have a
definition for being middle-class. However, the U.S. Census Bureau
does keep statistics on household income distribution--right now the
median is $40,816, an historic high--which allows economists to come
up with their own definitions of middle-class. One formula is to find
a range between about the 30th percentile of income and the
80th--which would make those households earning between about $30,000
and $75,000 a year middle-class. Others, with a flusher view of
things, say that the formula should be about three times the poverty
rate for the low end and seven times the poverty rate for the high
end, putting households with between $50,000 and $120,000 of yearly
income (at $120,000 many tax credits start to phase out) into the
middle class... In 1999 about 12 percent of households had income of
more than $100,000 a year, the sixth consecutive increase. But being
middle-class is more a state of mind than money. When surveyed, about
90 percent of Americans say that's what they are."
