every profession has unemployed people period. Some are higher than others, I don't exactly know how it got to this, I agree that people can do more to get ahead, but I also believe at points people just get robbed.

I love the market but I love seeing Wal Mart squirm.
I think rural areas often fall into that category. A little town called Manchester, KY. If you go to college and don't move? You're probably going to be working a minimum wage job or slightly above...unless you're a doctor, lawyer or Indian chief. Or stand in line to get a job at the Federal prison. A whole area called Door County, Wisconsin. You're probably going to be working a minimum wage job or slightly above unless you wait in the long line for teacher positions or start your own business. The country's full of pockets like that. Even a robust economy isn't going to change that.
Thank you, Quazi!
Those who come to this country on work Visas expect competitive compensation as they are subject to the same cost of living as anyone else. Do you have the same hard on for illegal immigrants as you do for those that arrived here and reside here legally?
Wal-Mart has destroyed the American Village: the family pharmacy, hardware store, clothing store all the while suppressing wages for desperate American workers. As cheap as the prices are, the Walt-Mart workers shop at the 99-Cent Store...after new employee orientation which teaches new hires how to get food-stamps and qualify for welfare. Times are bad for many American Families and Wal-Mart is the first resort for the needy...at the expense of the worker. 60% of America shops at Wal-Mart daily. Anyone of the few remaining middle class who shops at Wal-mart is self-destructive. The "profit" made by Wal-Mart is nothing more nor less that the income made as labor brokers...the products they sell are made by slave labor abroad to be bought by people who, by patronizing, are helping destroy the middle Class.
