It does take millions, at least, to be allowed to open a franchise. Go to ANY of their webpages and look at the application.
A place like Shepard's in Berlin? Of course, they can't pay employees 20/hr. I don't know anything about their business model, but I can almost guarantee you that they're not given a single penny from the government. It's possible they were given a small business loan by the state..NOT federal government, then charged outrageous interest rates. They pay tons of taxes...the majority of their taxes are going to Fortune 500 companies...just like everyone else's. I, and other liberals, say "give those places the massive tax breaks, and government money," then once they're *profiting* over 250K a year, start taxing them accordingly. And, I think a place like Shepard's would likely pay 20 an hour, IF they could...(unlike McDonald's, Walmart...)
The horror known as capitalism makes it next to impossible for small business to exist, because they come along, backed by endless amounts of corporate welfare, and crush the competition. And, how do they get away with it? They call themselves job creators, and people fall for it, LOL! They want upper-class/masters and lower class/slaves. For anyone to blame poor people instead of the rich is extremely misguided.(not to mention stupid, and anti-Christian)

"For Real"...I was thinking back to Mitt Romney's disgusting comment about the 47%...and now I realize what you're talking about. 47% of Americans do not pay federal income taxes, because a person has to make a very substantial amount of money to pay federal incomes taxes.
Republican *politicians* and Mitt Romney do not consider paying payroll taxes as "taxes" at all. How horrible is that?! So, these 47% DO pay taxes, and DO get tax returns, just not income tax returns.
And, who are the 47% that republicans are talking about? They talking about nurses, teachers, the military, police, construction workers, carpenters, most small-business owners, MOST blue-collar workers in general....etc...
Do you understand what I'm talking about?

No we all know what you are talking about. You are a lazy democrat that wants to live off the taxes of hard working Republicans.
Lazy lazy lazy welfare recipient.

Why on earth are you copying and pasting the bible on this forum when you are an atheist?
That is idiotic to say that you don't believe in God but people should live by his word.
You lost me on your crazy debating style.
I am also pretty sure that Republicans give a heck of a lot more than Democrats when it comes to taxes and charitable donations.
You really come across that you just want a handout and you think rich Republicans should give more to you.

I'm not an Atheist, Sybil. This was written by an Atheist who's pointing out why republicans aren't Christians.
And, wrong again...democrats give more. And, republican voting states depend on government handouts way more than democrat states do.
I have a job, it's you who won't say what you do. And just like those republican states, that claim to hate welfare...well, they're on it. It's always the ones who scream the loudest against welfare that get welfare.

You are just an outright liar!
Republicans pay more in taxes and give more as a percentage of their income every year!
Educate yourself! Google it. There are countless articles that talk about the stingy rich democrats.
And Romney as a Mormon gives 10% of his income to charity. Much more than Obama.

btw....the hell with most "charities" and that includes The American Cancer Society.
Just because a place is labeled "non-profit" does NOT mean it's top employees/owners aren't paying themselves billions.

So let me get this straight you hate Republicans, and women that are prettier than you ie.Stacey, and of course all cops that are puppets to corporations, and prison guards, and the truth, and religion, and men because they leave you, and of course you hate actually working and now you hate big charities because they hire professionals that know what they are doing instead the government that has corrupt politicians.
Wow you are running out of people to hate. All because Stacey beat you in a contest.

Crazy Cat Lady try to pay attention.
I was talking about who is most charitable! Republicans or Democrats and clearly Republicans give more out of their own pockets for both taxes and charity to help needy.
There is no debating who is more giving so instead you complain about the American Cancer Society. Pathetically weak!
And you give an article talking about which Democrat or Republican States take advantage of the most government programs.Two completely different topics ! Apples and oranges. But if you have a problem with Republicans taking advantage of Democrat welfare programs ....then I suggest you talk to your Democrat leaders and cut out all the welfare programs.lol There you go problem solved.
I wouldnt be surprised if Republican states are smart enough to use Democratic programs to help their poor residents. And while they use these programs since they are there anyway.... they still give more out of their own pockets than Democrats that are in the same income bracket. Sounds like pretty smart AND giving people to me.
A lazy arse welfare case like yourself should be thanking the Republicans.
You are welcome.
