$12 an hour. Lets say they keep 70%. That's less than $1400 net each month.

So you get to live in a shitty apartment and stay home every night.

Quit comparing the wage to some fantasy that you have about life.

I'm not saying $12 is a bad wage, but its not great.

Do you need skills? Are you sure no one applied or did the HR people tell you that? Sometimes HR will say that cause no one they want ou to hire applied or they're interviewing for another job.

Just sayin'

First off, $12. is the starting wage. With in a year it could go to $20.

It is a starting position for a shovel operator.
 Quoting: Justalittlebad


It amazes me that people bitch about no jobs, then turn their noses at a decent, respectable offering.

I guess it's easier sucking the Govt. teat.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17487177


Faken communists thats what. Faken obama lechers, they'd better of suck the pimp of GOV then work for 2x min wage... faken morons. In my country You would have half the population begging for this kinda payed job, and everything is 2x expensive here then in USA. I dunno how U americans manage to live, but 12$ and hour when a dinner in restaurant cost about 10$... comapre it to my country where 5/h is min wage, and dinner costs 30....
America is going to hell thanks to those communists trained by media and their puppet master president.

I am so sick and tired of the top 4 people at any company or corp. making 1000sands of times MORE than all the rest of the people that work there. GREED has made this world collapse and it will never stop now. HOW do these people actually go to work each and stare the other employees in the face? Say HI to the doorman and say HI to the single mom's working their asses off in those cubicles? The mail room people and most EVERYONE else THERE! HOW DO THEY DO IT? No going back now...this won't STAND...nope it will all fall DUE to these GREEDY BASTARDS! Just a matter of time now. No wonder no one wants your $12.00 an hour shovel job...it sucks is why. Don't be so polly anna...you know it sucks too.Idol1

Finding good help for entry level positions is difficult. Everyone wants 20/hr or so to start. For a position not requiring a diploma, 20+ is after you are proven...not to start. So...they keep looking until they must take a job to eat.
Adversity is inevitable, misery is optional.

Do or do not. There is no try.

Good lord you leeches make me sick! for a while I lived very comfortable off of 25k/year! Which after taxes left me with about $1,500/month. So for the guy asking about number crunching here you go...

Rent w roommate : $325/month : $3,900/year
Electric w roommate: $60/month : $720/year
food : $150/month : $1,800/year
Car tag : $60/year
Car insurance : $1,200/year
Gas : on average $150/month : $1,800

all that equals about $9,500/year leaving just under 10k power year left over for entertainment/phone/internet/cable etc...

These are numbers that are current in my area! These numbers assume somethings like the apartment pays water, a small non-gas-guzzling car, a single person and whatnot!

those numbers seem easy living to me. I should know, I lived it for 3 years until I worked my way up. So shills need to stop their crying. OP is offering a great wage. People are just too lazy and entitled to want to actually work.redface

1. Can you...Feed, clothe, shelter yourself(1 person) on $12 an hour in today's economy?

2. How about 2 persons, say elderly around 60-64 yrs old

3. How about 3 persons(add wife and kid)

can you do so without any Government assistance?

then add transportation and all that goes with it(taxes, tag, insurance, fuel, tires and maintenance)

Are you kidding me? You find a roommate!
