So, it's ok to pay slave wages as long as there is someone desperate enough to take it?

Yes. If I`m forced to pay more, I`ll hire someone with better education, skills, and experience than that poor desperate slob you`re so concerned about, and he can just starve.

"It's up to the worker to earn a living wage."

So, it`s ok to pay slave wages as long as there is someone desperate enough to take it? So we`re no better than Bangladesh or China? I agree that people should get training to get a better job but if you can`t make enough money to afford the training, then what? At least in countries like Germany there are public trade schools people can attend if regular college doesn`t fit their skill set or interests. There is a movement to bring this kind of training to the US Link

The allotted spare income where I live, on minimum wage, is $58 a month. Ooohhh the fun to be had with $58 a month!
That is of course, if you can keep your housing costs below the $385 a month they've set. Good luck with that.
Nope, no wealth gap in this country. . .

God I can`t wait to murder me some rich people when the revolution finally kicks off.

@ MidPac - isn't Hawai`i quite expensive? I know San Diego is considered one of the most pricey places to live. Avg Income vs Cost of Living. Use that and I think you`ll get an idea locally for you.

Here, gasoline is high, land/housing is high, utilities are some of the highest in the country. But avg. income is low because is such a beautiful place to live people put up with it. Less that 15% can afford to buy a home here
