    When I worked for a major American broadcaster in London and Madrid our salaries were about one third lower than our opposite numbers working out of DC and Miami, even though, in London at least, the cost of living is higher than in the US. On the other hand, we had a standard 5 weeks holiday entitlement in the UK and 5 in Spain, although there you had to take at least 3 of those weeks in August, because Madrid effectively closes down in the summer.

    As far as I can see, in Europe we are more cash poor, time rich. In the US you tend towards the opposite. I think it's a minor cultural difference.

    I hope nobody is ever in my class. My class involves weight restrictions. And I mean the weight one can pick up. I'm on a 20 pounder. My class involves going to a cardiologist every three months.My class sucks not only being poor but also having all these other issues.

The only real difference between a homeless American, me, and Bill Gates is the amount of money in our bank accounts. Thats it. It aint that much of a difference, when you sit down and actually think about it. Because with a turn of fate I could be in Bill Gates place, Bill Gates could end up in the homeless mans place, and the homeless man in my place. American economic strata is VERY fluid when compaired to the rest of the world. Millionaires are routinely added and dropped. One bad year for a millionare and they have to start over. In fact if you survey most of the millionaires and billionares you will find more than a few have lost all their money before and have been millionaires at least twice. Blue collor, white collor, proffesional. What does that really mean in this country? Not a a lot. It applies much more abroad than here. I am a prime example. I am not a college graduate. I work in the logistics and transportation fields. That you would think make me blue collor. The catch is I own a business and have clients that are on the New York Stock exchange and the fortune 500. I gross at least high 6 figures. I am not an exception in this country. Big Business in this country survives by utilizing the services of small business. People like me. Americans I think are much more difficult to pigeon hole. So what does that make me? My own class, the same class as Every other American, no class.
    Next to the "like" button, there should be a "this post should be emblazoned into the heart of every American child" button that each poster gets to press maybe once a year. This would be it.

    Not being poor still has very little to do with being wealthy.

    I am glad to see that the poor and homeless are much a citizen as you are. That's what I have always said.

    My wife worked her ass off as a legal secretary for over thirty years. The last ten years of that no health care was provided at ten dollars per hour with no benefits,. Her boss said he could not afford it but he could afford to send his own daughter to the mayo clinic.

    Her boss never missed church. He recently died fairly young. God forgive him.

    and? are you saying that if you lived in France your wife would not have worked her ass off for over 30 years?
