Message Subject Holy crap, Machinist in Nevada starting pay $12hr with benefits

Here's how it works. They advertise a position for low pay, and demand high qualifications. Sometimes the qualifications are impossible, such as having 2 years experience working with Microsoft 8.

Then when no-one who is qualified applies, the company applies to bring in foreign workers. They drop the impossible qualification, and hire foreigners who will do the job on the cheap.

At least this ad is offering $12 an hour. The fake ads in my area usually only offer $8. (But they require the person be bilingual, have several years of supervising, and have several years of specialized training. All for only minimum wage. )

Every single ad for jobs in my area advertises a meager salary of 8 to 9 dollars an hour, with an insane amount of credentials required. 9 times out of 10, these positions are also PART TIME or per diem. Our economy is garbage. Those 8 dollars that they are offering are probably worth about 3 dollars from 10 years ago, and it is getting worse.

It makes me feel lucky to have my job that I get paid 11.50 an hour for with benefits. Yes, I have a degree, and that is a very low amount of money (not a living wage, at all). It is impossible to be single and life off of a low wage, I have no idea why single people don't get a tax exemption as opposed to married people. I can't imagine how bad it would be if I had to live off of 8 dollars an hour and not be guaranteed 40 hours and benefits.
