It ain't my fault I didn't graduate from high school.

It ainít my fault Iím a baby making machine an donít know where the baby daddy is.

It ainít my fault I donít learn a skill that would let me get a better job.

YOU need to be socially responsible and pay me $15 an hour even though I am not worth that much to the business.

So a McDonald's worker is worth almost 50% less than he or she was half a century ago? That makes no sense.

What good goes it do for society if a typical McDonald's worker needs to depend on the government for health care, housing, food stamps, etc. became they aren't paid a living wage?

If your skills are only worth $8 an hour that is all you should get paid. It is your own fault if you aren't capable of earning more money.

So answer the two questions:

1) Why are fast food employees worth less than half the pay that they got 50 years ago?

2) Who is supposed to pay for their health care, housing food stamps. etc if the can't afford it?

The taxpayers? You'd really rather have a multi-billion dollar corporation set their employees up to live on public assistance?

That makes no sense.

Every person deserves an honest days pay for an honest day of labor. The cost of living has risen dramatically over the last 60 years yet the minimum wage has barely risen at all.

In a capitalist based economy you are paid based on your worth in the competitive marketplace.

In a socialist economy, you are paid what the government decides the private employers should pay you.

If you are a good employee, you will always do better in a capitalist economy. If you are a non-producing slug, you need the government to mandate how much you earn.

You are a non-producing slug.

Umm, this isn't a capitalist economy.

You got that right. Barack Obama is doing his best to turn it into a Fascist nation.

"An inherent aspect of fascist economies was economic dirigisme, meaning an economy where the government exerts strong directive influence, and effectively controls production and allocation of resources. In general, apart from the nationalizations of some industries, fascist economies were based on private property and private initiative, but these were contingent upon service to the state."

Clueless people such as you are why this country is 88 gazillion dollars in debt.

Do you know how to read? If so, I challenge you to provide a definition of the American economy that does not match the definition of a Fascist economy as written above.
