Today, those fortunate enough to have a decent paying job comes at the expense of many others being stuck with only having a handful of minimum wage fast food part time no benefit jobs to apply for. As a whole, we were far better of in '67 because more people could afford to live. How is that possible today when we see real unemployment at about 23% vs a govt fiction measured by a head count of those that are collecting unemployment benefits at 5%? How do we have 49 million people on food stamps if they are "doing just fine"? Im very close to saying those who do not work and only collect govt welfare are temporarily better off than those that do work at the worst jobs weve ever had. I know I should not think like that, but this system feels so bad that for me, hope is truly lost.
