    Re: What is a "liveable wage"?

    There is a quote in the movie "Book of Eli" that is very appropriate here.
    "People had more than they needed. We had no idea what was precious and what wasn't. We threw away things people kill each other for now."
    Being paid a minimum wage to be a toilet cleaner is just fine in my book. You are an unskilled worker being paid an unskilled wage. With the money you have, you cannot live a lavish lifestyle, but you can feed yourself and provide shelter for yourself. If you are trying to feed a family of 4, you cannot. If you want to drive a fancy car, you also cannot. It is called MINIMUM for a reason. You want more than the minimum? You need to bring something to the table besides a minimum skill. Learn how to repair that toilet and you will be paid accordingly.
    As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
    Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!

    That said, I think we should do more to help the poor in Africa and India and other places where real poverty still exists. Every human being should have food and shelter at least, and a chance to educate themselves.
    l agree and wish to see a world where no human being dies of hunger because it is a shame for all humans but again hunger in such parts of the world is another argument

    What is it, people?
    It's something that persistent wanters with no ambition cry for because they only know how to take what is given to them.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
