Just recently my buddy came back with his reserve unit from Iraq. Anyway, he needs a job since the company he used to work for went out of business. So, he goes to UPS where he worked back in 92. He worked on the sort isle and made 9.50 an hour part time- 25hr week. He goes back (since he left on good terms) and is offered the SAME job (since he had two years experience) at the SAME rate he made in 1992! 9.50 an hour is all they are paying for the exact same job 16 years later!!!!!! can you believe that crap? I can't. I guess since I am doing alright I don't think about the rest of the world sometimes. That's just HOSED IMO. </P>

my thoughts are- be happy with everything you are given, from the smallest rusted out car to the biggest luxurious house, because there are many many people in the world who would give their lives so their families could have a taste of the lifestyle we have in north america. Treasure everything you have because to someone in the world those things you treasure are not even consideredpossible.</P>

this was not directed at themaker of this thread or the friend you mentioned, just mythoughts.</P>

I understand. I don't condone any criminality, ever, drug use etc. But I'll tell you. You can't feed a family of four on the same money one made back in 1992. You can't pay a mortgage and put healthy food on the table for 9.50 an hour. If you think the military cares about you, they don't. I've been there. Some people are almost forced onto welfare. If not, well then it's two jobs where one never sees his kids. What kind of life is that? I had to lend my bud 4k last week just so he could catch up. So I guess I am taking this more personal and looking at it from the other side for once in about ten years. Anyway, it's gross. What's even funnier is that people actually have this wild notion that a president will change it all. It's a joke.

It's a sad situation and there are many of americans working minimum wage jobs,just to feed their families these days. I live in Northeast Pa and unless you're a doctor or a lawyer or a nurse,the average jobs pay minimum wageor slightly higher.It's a rough economy up here and almost every household works 2 jobs a piece.Unfortunately it seems like it's becoming the way of the world anymore.I hope Obama can help us get out of this situation,but I'm not holding my breath.I have a cousin that served in Iraq.He works 3 jobs,since he came back.he tells me that sometimes,he'd rather be over in Iraq because atleast he got some sort of sleep in Iraq. It's sad.All we can do is be there to support eachother,sometimes just having a shoulder to cry on helps in these tough times.[:D]</P>

American's don't know what poor is. The poorest of poor (aside from the homeless) have a car, a TV, and most likely a computer in the house.

Suppose you have a point. But we're used to things getting better, and that not the case these days.

I guess the corporations are hurting too, and if they can get someone to work for a 1992 rate, why would they pay more and risk closing up? It's sick, I agree. . .I think things will get better, but "when" is the question.

this is a tuff post to comment on. i would have to say if your buddy was in the military that he could go and get a goverment job some where, like the post office or police department, my father was is in the military for 8 years and gov't jobs always give the jobs to vets before civilians. so tell him to look in that field.up here in big flats ny, we have two black hawk building facilities. i believe that they just got the new contract to make all of obama's new heilcotpers, "with stimilus money""??weired.. so tell him to come over here and apply. www.sacusa.com (http://www.sacusa.com) . for the homeless, its a sad situation, but i do believe they should and could go out and try to find a job, there is so many programs around to help with these situations, or is it just lazy? i dunno, but having two kids a wife and two dogs, we have been in hardships but were always working our asses off to find a new job if something was to happen with the jobs we have now.. but for the stimuls package i think is bogus, and why should we bail out these big corprates..example the automakers are asking for money because no one has money or can get a loan to buy their cars..so why should I the tax payer give them money to make more cars so that they have a huge surplus, and we can't still buy them and they will ask for more money the same way now.. For the mortage crisis, its the Banks and the Homeowners faults why the housing market sucks... The banks were so lienent to give people a 100,000 mortgage they couldn't afford, and the homeowener knew that, and now their for help, come on, live within your means...I know my wife and I are going to be first time home owners, well we wanted to this year, but now its going to be so hard because of whats going on..I would never own a 200,000 dollar house or mortgage, or a car over 10,000 dollars... Ridiculus.....why in the hell would anyone pay 3000 dollars a month on a house for 25 years...thats alotta money.. and 400 dollars a month for a car, comeon stay within your means, i always said, if i don't have the cash for it, i didn't need it anyways...

Thats an unfair observation. People are GOING poor now. There's a big effing difference. People who were making ends meet are now unable to support themselves and god forbid they have a family, all because of nothing they can themselves control. They didn't singlehandedly cause a recession. And is going back to school an option? Not when college costs more than 6months salary! What a joke.</P>

damn i wann work were you work, 6 months salary for me is around 20K, and i don't think you will get a full education from a good college for that little. i would say a full education would cost more than a few years salary.</P>

man, i got laid off 6months ago, and now can't get a job, because every place is doing a cori and criminal background check, and i mean everywhere. I realize i put myself in the perdicement, but i'm 27yr's old now, and when i did what i did, i was 19yrs old, and only trouble ever been in, although felony status. I totally made a mistake, and have been outstanding citizen before and after one stupid young moronic evening, and i have to pay for it forever it feels like. If the econemy wasen't so twisted, i'd never been laid off, and would still be detailing cars, which i have been doing at the same place since i came home, so for about 7and a half yr's, but my boss, isn't doing well with things, and i was a casulty along with a guy who has been there a little longer than me, it stinks, and it feels like i'll never get another job. Wow, i feel alittle better...lol

Id love 9.50/hr right now, Ive been unemployed since thanksgiving when my seasonal job was finished for the season. Luckly I go back to work this month but I tell ya, it's pretty much awful out there.

It's only going to get worse to.


On another note, politics should never be discussed because an arguement always errupts so to stop myself Im not posting on this thread anymore.

dude, i'm sorry for saying this, but it selfishly makes me feel better to know i'm not just being singled out or something, even though you know stuffs going on everywhere, it is still hard to get it through your head, and sometimes that can result in depression.

It's tougher than ever. Two years ago my rug business produced 125k in a 30 hr week. The business dropped 30% in late 07 and 40% overall in 08. So, I partnered with a friend doing marketing for the nations leading credit repair company.....AND... I do session and weekend workas a drummer/vocalist. What's funny is that it almost doesn't matter how good you are in the business. It's WHO thinks you are marketable. How do you market a 42 year old drummer/vocalist? You don't really. You book him gigs in Vegas that pay Juuuust enough to keep him interested. So I have to work hard at making connections. I don't mind the hard work. Connections with people that can get you into the casinos on a regular basis. They are the ones who can always afford to pay. People will always gamble, no matter what the economy. </P>


Not that anyone probably cares, but I went from that 30 hr wk at 125k to 50 three years later and having to get into credit repair, session work to bring me up to where I was 3 years ago. The difference is that I work about 50hrs a week now. No, I'm not crying, but I am ticked off that WE the people let this happen. I'm mad at myself. I'm mad at ignorance. I'm upset with complacency and laziness and lowered standards, mediocrity and most of all in collective social apathy. CSA I call it. In the meantime I get myself educated as much as possible. I am establsihing corporate credit and slowly learning commercial real estate so I can try to put some money away for my childrens future. I have no doubt I will do it, but most americans, sadly are having an extremely HARD time. You can only be squeezed so much, until there is just no juice left. Something has to give. Something. If it doesn't, I think we may see another civil war or some uprising. I don't think a revolt is out of the question.People are tired. </P>
