My grandmother was a "char woman" for her entire life. Even she left jobs for better paying ones. Nope. I don't buy what you're trying to sell. The majority of people could do better for themselves if they so chose.
I actually have high expectations of people, but it's more in the line of character, not money making ability.
In answer to your question, yes, I've guided people. However, I cannot force anyone. That will to change comes from within. Simply throwing money at a problem has never worked, isn't working now and will never work.

To retaliate in kind would do nothing but intensify the existence of hate in the universe. Along the way of life, someone must have sense enough, and morality enough, to cut off the chain of hate. ~~ MLK
My niece and her husband and my sister just bought new homes. Guess that means the real estate market is back, right?
Myopic to say the least.
1. didn't we just dance this dance before the 2006 election? Wasn't the minimum wage raised then amidst the flowery promises of a gold pooping unicorn in everyone's kitchen, better opportunities for minorities, the ability to put people to work, etc???
Where are we today on all those promises? did the democrats who pushed through the wage hike see all their lofty promises realized?
2. regardless of what the obama regime propoganda ministers say, we are in a full-blown recession. more people unemployed, underemployed and/or on some sort of public assistance than ever before in American history. raising the minimum wage will just add to those numbers.
3. if I own a business, I do a PNL statement at least once a month. I have fixed cost % amounts for things like utilities, rent, taxes, LABOR, etc. IF you raise my labor costs via Federally mandated wage hikes, I have to do 3 things:
a. raise my prices so my fixed costs stay in line
b. PRAY that my increase in prices will not cause a drop in sales
c. start evaluating my labor force to see who is actually "worth" keeping at the new hourly rate because layoffs are more than likely comming.
lastly, this red herring about corporate CEOs making a bazillion dollars on the backs of the working class is nonsense. 99% of those who will be forced to make tough choices are small businesses, who are operating on a small net profit %.
here's an idea instead....
How about the obama regime and the FED stop printing money and devaluing the currency, so that $7.25/hour goes furhter. How well would someone from 1950 be doing on $7.25/hour?
ever think of that librats????
Republicons remember, if they disagree with what you're saying call them names and quote unproven solutions. That'll throw em off.
Nothing you have said above has reduced the # of people receiving food stamps.
Does the "Obama regime" include the majority of American citizens who re-elected him into office. Does it include the Republican governors who have now latched onto Obamacare ?
