The last year I made less than $18 per hour was 1981 and that was good money back then. If you donít learn a good paying marketable skill you get left behind simple as that. And cashier, security guard, burger flipper or coffee chemist isnít a good paying skill simple as that.

Would you just ******* move to the country you think is best and stop posting these bash America threads. I'm sick of them. Must suck going through life hating the very country you currently live in. And it must suck going through life thinking government will solve all your problems for you. Don't want to make less than $18 an hour BETTER YOURSELF.
But, bottom line, please leave the US as soon as possible.

Progressives: "We need more desparate unskilled workers from third world countries!".

Progressives again: Why are wages so low?".

Or $15.50 for that matter. There is no guarantee of luxury in this country. But you can EARN it if you want it.

Default change it back

make most gov jobs the min wage with shitty benefits and everyone will work in the higher paid private sector and produce agaIN

back in the 50's and 60's in detroit the center of the greatest global ecoonmy in world history the saying was: "if you can't get a job in the higher paying private sector, go get a(lower wage) job in the government....

that is what made america and labor great

It's called working your way up the ladder of success. Way too many just don't want to move, don't have the skills to move and most importantly don't have the personal discipline to move up the ladder of success.

Having kids you can't afford, dont finish high school, drink and do drugs, poor work habits and the media and liberal idiots telling you that you cannot succeed becuase the "Man" Is against you.

Good question, but 'ilk' haven't ever really been in power, because I don't have an 'ilk'.

Nobody has done anything about this for 40+ years. Wages have being undercut by immigration (legal and illegal) and offshoring and inshoring. Which is why wages barely budge even in such a low unemployment scenario. Which is why unemployment isn't a super useful measure, once it's divorced from any impact on wages or benefits.

ignore the facts that dem policies ran off industry.
obama said "industry will not return to America"

ignore the fact dem states are sanctuary.
ignore the facts that taxing the rich takes money out of your pocket.
rich do not pay taxes. they pass the burden on to customers.
PERIOD, end of story.
