It seems to me that America has been going downhill since Reagan took the election for President. Ever since then the rich have gotten richer while the middle class workers have dwindled and the poor have become poorer.
If we had jobs that paid well and a minimum wage that was livable we would not have nearly as many problems. People would be busy doing their jobs and living their lives. Crime would still be happening but some crimes would stop. You will always have some white collar crime because of greed! Petty crime wouldn’t have to happen. Because people would have a job that is rewarding.
I know that this would not cure all that is wrong but it sure would make life a lot better for a lot of folks. It also would not hurt to spend the money on creating jobs and stop spending so much on fighting wars!
So as I often do, I ask you for your thoughts about a livable wage as a minimum wage?
Follow Bernie Sanders and read his posts on his site and maybe you will understand more clearly what I am trying to say here. Vote and take someone to the polls who might not go without a little shove in the right “correct” direction. Get rid of the GOtP and get a congress that will do the work they are paid to do.
