No, his salary won't, because the average poor person is not a net taxpayer in regards to these programs. Nothing about this = slavery.Joe is one of many unemployed people due to outsourcing paid for by tax cuts. However, Joe is also a responsible tax payer. When a Wall Street corproation that was deemed to be "too big to fail" was going to declare bankrupcy, the government decided to bail them out. When Joe gets a job, his tax dollars are going to pay for the mulitmillion dollar golden parachutes of the CEOs as well as to pay the salaries of many of the irresponsible wealthy people who put the corporation in that place to begin with.
No, they're doing their jobs in order to get paychecks every Friday, just like everyone else. They get those paychecks. If they don't like them, they can go elsewhere. Nothing about this = slavery.Joe and millions of people like him are doing their part to keep the rich on top for the sake of jobs that will likely be outsourced overseas.
Terrible sob story, yet completely irrelevant. Nothing about this = slavery.Becasue so many people are unemployed, Joe is competeing for jobs that pay much lower than his last job. And since so many people are desparate for work they are willing to work for low wages. Since the manufacturing industry is sinking, Joe has to go work in the Service industry which has considerably lower paying jobs. He ends up at McDonalds. Joe plans to save up some money so he can look for a job, but Joe gets sick. Suddenly his McDonald's wages are not enough to cover his medical expenses. He become indebted to the hospital and can't save any money as he pays off his bills. Joe must continue to work at McDonalds to just get by. He has become a member of the working poor.
More irrelevance. Nothing about this = slavery.When Joe does get an opportunity to get a better job, nobody will hire him because he worked at McDonalds for so long. Joe is out of luck. He isn't even making enough money to save for retirment. However, if he wants to change jobs he certainly can. Many of the companies are using their tax cuts to create more low wage jobs since there are people who will work them. He could move laterally from working at McDonalds to working at KFC.
No he won't, for the reasons stated above. The working poor are not net taxpayers.Joe will also be helping pay for the tax cut that lost him his job and that has kept him in low wage jobs. The government had to borrow 700 billion to pay for it so a small amount of that will come out of Joe's paycheck. Joe is all the more poor and the wealthy are all the more rich.
And of course, nothing about this = slavery.
