@Devon, I think you just have a very different view them I do. For one you are right that business needs the working class, but you can't hate the rich or the big business either that give the jobs in the first place. You also seem to have this weird image that every working class person works in a sweat shop and gets paid a penny a hour or something... This is just not true at least its not where I live not sure about you.
I have worked in construction doing basic home remodeling (Redoing kitchens, sheetrocking, roofing, deckbuilding, anything involving a house really) for 2 years which yes was had labor and I guess could be considered a working class job. When I worked there I wasn't making a dollar a hour wage, I was actually getting paid more then I do now at my desk job. So yes it was hard labor but I was making a good living doing it.
I have also worked as a garbage collector for a few months until I got my current desk job. Wasn't the cleanest of jobs I'll give you that but it still paid good and no it wasn't minimum wage like someone else mentioned.
So I have worked as the working class and I don't see where you get this idea devon that they are being ripped off by being underpaid, or being unfairly treated...
They have the same opportunities that the rest of us have (Some have more, some have less its just the way of the world).
|Wealth does come from middle class investment into new buisnesses, the republicans tried to ban this ted talk!! it was to close to voting day (and the truth)|
What are you talking about? Could you please show me what evidence you have the republicans tried to ban talk of the middle class investing into new business? What ted talk anyways?
|@Zereo, this ted talk says something very similar, although there would be no middle class without working class either right??|
There always will be the rich, and there always will be the poor. There always will be lazy people, and there will always be hardworking people. There will always be people who get lucky, and people who get unlucky.
The point is in order to have one you have to have the other. To have rich people and business's you have to have "working class" people. If you try to get rid of one of them they both fall.
|Unfortunately, that would be a long bit to explain; what bankers do to the economy and I really don't feel like getting into that.|
Just like Cyprus Bank, and the government charging all its customers a 5%-10% (I think) tax on their money in their savings accounts ;p
