Do not intervene
Yes, do intervene
Then you need to prove to your employers that you're worth more money than you're making. You need to show that your presence and your work earn them a significant amount of money. If you can't do that, then you're just not worth more. That's how it works.Personally, I would like to be paid more money than I currently am. I think I deserve more. It not so much a reciprocal agreement, as what is available for now... and I NEED $ now. Making some money, is better than making no money.
That's true, but we're also talking about people who had low-paying jobs before the economy tanked and once it recovers fully, they'll still have low-paying jobs. That's all they will ever have because they have neither the skills, the work ethic or the education to have more. And whose fault is that?Having a job, any job, in the current American economy is reason to be thankful... Refusing a job because it's not good enough, would be consigning oneself to poverty and a financial catastrophe. Our politicians need to recognize the difference between the welfare or "lazy poor" and the working poor. The poor who work their asses off because they are not lazy and refuse welfare, yet still live below the poverty line.
No, we're not, so why are so many people acting like everyone ought to be treated equally? Bill Gates earned his billions. He deserves them. Someone digging ditches has not earned that much, therefore they don't deserve it. So why do we have this thread about income inequality when you, yourself, admit that there isn't work equality? People get what they've earned. If they want to get more, they have to earn more. It's not rocket science.Furthermore, we are not all created equal. We are not all Bill Gates, nor are we all equally capable of starting up successful companies like Mr Gates did. You can't just tell anybody off the street to start up a company and expect them to be the next billionaire or even remotely successful. Some people just aren't intelligent enough to run companies or stay wealthy once they win the lottery or suddenly find wealth.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
