Here are a couple of tips for the low wage worker: Go to trade school in the evenings or on weekends. Go to college in the evenings or on-ine.

Then you can get a better job, earn more money, and become even more pessimistic about the future of this country.

AP-NORC Center survey shows high pessimism among low-wage workers despite job gains

Article by: TOM RAUM and JENNIFER AGIESTA, Associated Press
Updated: March 20, 2013 - 2:14 AM

WASHINGTON - America's lower-income workers have posted the biggest job gains since the deep 2007-09 recession but few are bragging.

As a workforce sector, those earning $35,000 or less annually are generally pessimistic about their finances and career prospects. Many see themselves as worse off now than during the recession, a two-part Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research survey of workers and employers shows.

The survey revealed that many people at the lowest rung in the workplace view their jobs as a dead end. Half were "not too" or "not at all" confident that their jobs would help them achieve long-term career goals. And only 41 percent of workers at the same place for more than a decade reported ever receiving a promotion.

Go to college in the evenings or {on-ine.}

In your case, COLLAGE would be a waste and pretending you care about folks you underpay is hypocritical...

So dumb, IT HERTZ !!!
