This is BAD.

I am also commission + base, so you can see the income is also decreasing marginally...

I'm getting out asap.

Point of the thread is, retail is dying very quickly. The economy is not growing. Everyone that does buy is doing so with credit cards at 25+% APR and most of them live in chicago. I am in indianapolis, so you can see they are probably buying out of state because they have no aspiration of paying off the cards.

At 20, I went from being all about video games and movies/television to feeling sick when I get home and that's all anyone wants to do anymore. Working in the field will quickly change that in anyone, and I'm actually grateful that it helped me to wake up.

Fact is, it's a sad future.

I'm tired of handling money and all of this shit nobody needs.

What draws the line for me is when people are more focused on Dancing with the Stars or American Idol than the fact that our country is a beautified skeleton being kept alive, literally, by machines.

When it all snaps, I think people like us will have a head start, at least mentally.

My route may be to flee to the west and live like my natives.

If I wasn't at risk of losing this shitty job before I can find another, I'd upload sales figures.

Let's just say my commission was -$148 for the last 2 weeks.

Yes, they will take that out of my check.

If my total earnings are still above min wage, they say "they have every right."

Ha. Well, I have every right to move on.

Very slow here in Southeast.

I work for tips and cannot make even minimum wage so the business has to make up the difference and that's not good for them. My hours have been cut three times since last November. I'm now working 10-15 hours a week and out looking for another part-time job.

He doesnt even believe what he says, if he gets you to even consider it, he's already won.
He doesnt want a recovery for you, he want recovery FROM you.
Youre effective tax rate is over 100% right now when you add in the debt.
To take everything from you means youre left for dead on the street, with your kids, and nobody is coming to help you, because theyre out there in the same condition, with the popo keeping you off of what you used to call your property

American Debt to GDP is over 1, that means you have to work for free just to break even, it's been that for a while now, and getting worse, so how long can YOU work for free, 3 years, more?
When the nations yearly debts are more than the yearly GROSS domestic product you got real problems

Truth, in an economy based on perpetual growth, killing off that growth is a death sentence, the only point of light in those stats is that many of those had no intent to contribute to growth to begin with, and to some degree, sparing us from an even greater invasion of basketball americans demanding free shit forever

They have been talking about this recovery since 2008 when Obama first got in office. Green shoots as far as the eye can see. You're average American is duped by looking at the stock market since they think it is indicative of our growth potential. Reality is the stock market is probably the most manipulated indicator out there other than GAO and BLS statistics.
