    Ah, yes, it's the fault of the socialists that the US and other western nations have been blindsided by cheap, inferior products from Asia.
    Take a look around you. Your economy, your whole society, is being undercut and it's ultra-conservatives in powerful positions who are letting- no, making, it happen.

    And why is that?

    A full-time worker should be paid enough to cover the cost of basic food, shelter, transportation and clothing. When they are not paid enough, tax payers end up subsidizing the employer by providing for the employee's basic needs, which should be the employer's responsibility.

    So you are against the idea that workers should be paid what they are worth?

    My opinion is that any full-time worker worth paying, should be paid enough to live a decent life.

    I guess when you get quotes to have work done on your house (or anything) or even just go shopping (maybe at WalMart), you tell them it's not enough and you will be paying a higher amount. Is that true?
