You keep on this crusade about how people a stuck in these low level positions yet I worked my way up from the bottom by working hard. It can be done and its not even hard its just that most people arent willing to put in the work
    you and i should totally go get a beer downtown. you can tell these people what you really think of them. i'll try to get you out of there with your teeth intact.

    your contempt for the average worker is disgusting. i'm not interested in having a discussion with you. peace.

    Interesting to end a post "peace" in the same post expressing a desire to place him in a situation where he's likely to get his teeth knocked out.

    You surprise me a little, Helix. Not in a bad way, just something I wouldn't have expected.

    Gotta love the fictional hard working people getting screwed over by "the man", you have already made you ignorance of retail clear. How do I not count as the average worker anymore just because im not on the lowest rung? If hard workers have no opportunities how did I get my promotions?

    eh, i'm still really sick, and i'm able to muster up little patience for those who have obvious contempt for most of my town. they just totally misunderstand the way the labor market has massively changed for the lower socioeconomic class. i see it firsthand, they are my friends, and i want us to help them to get promoted out of it. it's either that or supplement their income with taxes. they want to work, and most of them work really hard. i work really hard, too, and seeing someone working two cashier jobs makes me feel lazy.

    How is 25% of the workforce "fictional"? Or are you just saying all low-wage employees aren't hard working?

    That's impossible, unless the jobs go with them, because 25% of the workforce will always be low wage. That means, no matter what, in your eyes 25% of workers will always be lazy and incompetent.

    they all work hard. harder than i have to work with a masters degree, and probably harder than you do. think about that the next time you're bitching about the lazy poor on the internet.
    Dude, I am a laborer. I have contempt for myself? You don't make any sense.

    I work hard, and have my entire life. I am a tradesman.

    Why is it so difficult for you to admit there are lazy people? That is the main reason I loathe labor unions. The hard worker makes the same, or even less, than the lazy worker. How is that fair and equitable?

    I have no contempt for the poor, nor do I bitch about them. I give my own money freely to the poor.

    Its a cycle when hard workers get promoted others will follow in their place and have to work their way up. I obviously haven't met all of the low wage workers but in my experience any one them who were low wage for a long tine were either lazy/incompetent or didnt want to move up. Theres this one kid that works for me now, early 20s not going to college, hard worker shows up every day. Theres a supervisor position open and he would get it if he applied but has not interest in doing anything other than being a stocker and despite Helix's claim that people always want raises and promotions this is the type of **** that really baffles the theorists when they venture into the real world.

    how hard is it for you to admit that most of them are hard working Americans who deserve more opportunities to pull themselves out of poverty?

    you loathe labor unions? are you living in a company town, hopelessly in debt to your employer, or are you enjoying a two day weekend of dicking around on the internet and bitching about the lower socioeconomic class and how lazy they are? maybe you ought to think about that one for a minute.

    no one wants to rob you of ****ing walmart. they are the nation's largest employer, though, and i would like to see them do more to help the average worker to reclaim some semblance of the standard of living that they used to have before manufacturing went to ****. and i'm willing to pay a little more for groceries to get there, because i'm already paying for it in taxes to supplement their artificially low incomes.
