No, advancement is not just handed out nor is it given out at random. It is earned and can be by ANYONE who puts forth the effort.
Did you work at walmart?

Their wage/part time employee douchebaggery is well documented. One of my old neighbors worked there for 5 or 6 years and finally quit out of frustration. Within two years of taking a new job she was making double what the Wallies paid her - with killer benefits.

So you proved my point, she pulled herself up without increasing her minimum wage. Interesting.

No, she pulled herself up by quitting the dead end job she had with dead-end Walmart. She'd still be a part time "manager" making sh*t money and no benefits if she hadn't left. She's lucky she had that option.

Boohoo. She is making more than minimum wage and no one should have the right to tell a company how to pay their employees if they are paying atleast the regulated min wage.

You dont like walmarts employment practices, boycott them.

Or you could just spend you extra time taking some micro and macro economic courses at your local community college.

Do you honstly think that those people had the same chances that you & your lily white upbringing had?

In reality, not everyone has that option. Regardless of what anecdotal claim you will make.

I give up. Why?


Do you think three days is enough time to realize that your employer is going to sh*t on you forever?

He's OK, actually. He's pretty moderate and has the capacity to evolve.

Yep, ignorance of the youth. Understandable, most of us (including me) were just like him....many still are, others are worse off.

Why do people feel they "deserve" anything while popping out 5 kids? If your life is so terrible, why have kids? If you feel there is no opportunity left in the world and you need to be coddled by government, why have kids? If the entire system is against you, why have kids? Because everything is given to you and the government owes you, that's why.
