Re: How Many MINIMUM WAGE Hours Does it Take to Afford an Apartment in Your State?
The fact is, you guys can list a million reasons why people might be in a troubled situation. That's actually a good point. The point being EVERYONE has troubles. EVERYONE has problems in this life. There are no guarantees in life, the best that can be done, what most people want, is to have the government leave them alone, and let them pave their own way. No guarantees of equal results. That's impossible



Excellent!!!!!
 Quoting: Brevet


Oh bullshit. No offense intended, but what may be "troubles" for some might be only a fart in the wind for others. I bet you could find many people with severe troubles willing to trade places with some of you fart in the winders sitting nice and cush and comfortable right now where you are at. Just pointing out the truth.

However, gentlemen and ladies, there is REAL trouble coming on the horizon as in weeks and here we are discussing why someone merits making more than others base on external conditions, when the problems humanity will face for sure will make it more than OBVIOUS that the faith of the planet and all in its is connected like most dont/cant see.

What is all this whining about minimum wage?

You are fortunate that someone wants to employ you, particularly in an economy where the President keeps doling out wads of dough to bankers and keeps carpet bombing industry with taxes and all the future generations with whacking great debt bills.

Look, minimum wage is just a slap in the face fo employers and a socialist scam to export all the jobs to their pals in Commie Red China.

If the US is to climb out of recessio, the routwe is obvious:-

- Ban importation of all goods from Red China.
- Scrap the minimum wage.
- Stop all welfare.
- Scrap food stamps.

At $9 per hour that would be 8.8 hours per month.

I can earn in one day giving paraglider rides, enough to pay the rent for two months, which is good because paragliding scares the hell out of me sometimes, so I don't need to fly much.

That is rent for a 2000 sq ft 2 bedroom one bath,
comes with an equal sized deck on the roof and half acre yard with 20 foot security wall shared with two other tenants. I use the space for gardening.

Electricity and water included. DSL $8 per month extra.

How about you get involved in the marijuana trade by first hiring on as a field hand and learning all the details of good cannabis growth, and then get your own crop on some little rented lot where you'll pitch your shack.

Just a thought.

Oh, did I strike a nerve? This could be a long list. NOBODY with any integrity would make fun of people based on economic conditions they were born into--like chinese workers. NOBODY with any integrity would call for the wholesale slaughter of a group of people based upon their religion. NOBODY with any integrity would call those less fortunate lazy because they don't have access to the same opportunities as others. NOBODY with any integrity would claim to be a "rebel with MORALS" with such a contradictory history of violent communications.

Okay, your turn. Now try to prove me wrong by doing one of the things I just called you out for...
 Quoting: skeptic 8198777




LOL.. what a dick you are.

Listen you little commie cunt.

i was raised dirt poor in appalachia.. We poached deer and grew a large garden for food. Had no running water had heat only half the winter.

I already know you cannot say the same.

As of today, i own my home, all three of my vehicles, a second piece of property. and everything include therein.

i have a business and make good money doing what I do.

You are a sniveling, simpering little pussy who was brainwashed by the commies to have an entitlement attitude. nothing more nothing less.

Opportunities are what YOU make, not what you are given.

go fuck yourself.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28412265


First of all, brief, why don't you log in for this? You skeered? I too came from little, worked my ass off through good times and bad times, own my own home, three vehicles, lots of toys, blah blah blah....so we have that in common, numb-nuts.

Your attempt at labeling me a "communist" just shows your ignorance of the definition of the word--kudos. I actually support abolishing the minimum wage as it is a tool of an imperial government to keep us unwashed masses unclothed and hungry, but as long as we're going to have it, we might as well point out how useless it is.

And I am entitled to my opinion about the character known as "brief" and if you have a problem with that, then you have something to share with your shrink. Maybe he can heal all the butt-hurt I've caused you.

I make $11.50 an hour -

That's about $460 a week -

Rent, in FL, for a 1 Bedroom is $700ish a month.

So obviously, I'd need a roommate or "sublent" a room -

So at $1,8000 a month

$1,800
- 500 (for rent, mind you, this is me renting a room - so when I move out soon it'll be higher...)
$1,300
-100 (car insurance)
$1,200
-200 (gas for the month)
$1,000
-300 (food for the month)
$700
-$50 (cell phone)
$650.

I'm left with about $600 a month to play with....

Throw in a flat tire, or shopping for new clothes, or taking a girl out to dinner - and I'm one of those 1/4 Americans who live "paycheck to paycheck"

GOD BLESS THE USA!
 Quoting: Diluted 5663641

Umm, if you have $600 per month in disposable income and are living paycheck to paycheck, you are a dumbass.

Did nobody ever teach you the concept of saving and spending less than what you earn?

With that kind of extra money, you should easily have a $5k cushion in the bank or under your mattress, after a year.

Minimum wage is just a starting point for teenagers and people just entering the workforce or the retired as a hobby, it is NOT designed as a career choice.

Hey, asshat. Entry level jobs paying minimum wage were never expected to support an independent adult or a family. They used to be filed with high school and college kids who were still living at home, basically unskilled labor. If someone is 30, 40, 50 years old and still unskilled, that's their own fault and not the fault of their employer. They deserve whatever living hell they get.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33931923


That would have been true prior to the economy turning to shit.

A lot of companies in my city have used the excuse of the economic downturn to slash good paying jobs, and downgrade many of the salaries to minimum wage. Not because they were actually affected, but because they saw an opportunity to decrease spending.

So there are a lot of minimum wage jobs in the city now, that were good and great paying jobs before. But thats not a surprise, the greedy will always look for ways to be greedy.
