    Conservatives are morally bankrupt.

    I'm not arguing that people need a free ride, or they don't need to work hard to make a living. Just povide jobs that ALLOW them to make a living.
    Then be willing to train yourself in something more than pushing shopping carts and stocking shelves. Christ, if somebody paid me $50,000 a year, I couldn't be a WalMart greeter. Some career objective that is. Jesus.

    That is kill or be killed near state of nature. That is what the right wing wants.
    Do those thoughts make you feel better about your chosen lot in life?

    These jobs aren't intended to be "living wage jobs." These entry level jobs are for teenagers and college students - they're not careers.

    There are plenty of jobs out there that pay a "living wage" but those jobs require a skill.

    Is learning a skill too much to ask? or are people entitled to be useless idiots?

    A business is not responsible for supporting families...

    If people are unhappy about pay then they can learn a skill that pays more.

    College is pretty much free these days - not to mention student grants pretty much cover living expenses to boot.....
    College is pretty much free?

    not even close. it is expensive.

    lets look at a chart

    with benefits provided by the government you can receive with your pay as a single mother 55,000 per year
    How about you provide a chart what the average welfare recipient receives in conjunction with their pay. Only in the most extreme cases would a single mother receive such benefits.

    If you disagree, please present the data used to collaborate this chart.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    They are the stated goals of conservatives. They cause me no concern about my lot.

    Progressives refuse to take responsibility (or lack thereof) for their actions.

Maybe if I can live on the street while doing it, sure I'll work as long as you feed me. Course, "are there no prisons? No workhouses?" doesn't go over very well Mr. Scrooge.
    thats your choice with Walmart coming to DC either you accept the wage of 8.50 per hour or 0 per hour

    Yeah, if you want to go to a university - community college is free - not to mention students can get grants which cover living expenses while they're attending community college.

    Hell, the grants were what attracted me to go to college in the first place - it was extra income.
