Sorry, I've neither been to a hotel lately NOR do I eat at fast food joints.
Nor would I go to a spinning class.
So why is it that some kids still work menial low wage jobs, go to community college and move onto something better? While other people think menial low wage jobs are a lifetime CAREER CHOICE?
Contrary to what you believe, there are still well motivated teens who make good choices, who are not, as you say, "rude and impudent little twerp and tick off a lot of customers."
Maybe it has a lot to do with UPBRINGING. Having at least one good parent who teaches respect and responsibility, like not popping out children without the means to support them.
Perhaps the ABUNDANCE of low skilled people has a lot to do with the deterioration of our society and lack of effort towards excellence.
Well, now you are getting to the root of the cause. I do agree, too many Americans are not planning and preparing for a good future. And it is sad because in this country, there are many opportunities to do so.

Illegals come from a kind of deprivation that is not seen in this country. So yes, when they get a job and settle in for the long haul, it is because for them, it is purely survival, something that they cannot do in their home country.

Instead of being so angry with illegals, travel the world a bit and see what others are dealing with. But brace yourself because it will break your heart if you have one.

Americans have gotten very comfortable and not aware of the bigger picture as a result. We are causing our own problems by not being good citizens. It is not the fault of the ones running away from a horrible situation.

And no, I do not condone illegal immigration, nor do I think we should shoot them on the spot. I do not have the answer to how to deal with the problem in a humane manner.

But it would be nice to see more compassion and concern while we as a country try to solve the problem.

Raising minimum wage is fine, as long as welfare payments follow suit.

Should be no more minimum wage only LIVING WAGE AND ABOVE.

Nothing below poverty line.

I a company can pay a CEO 20 mill or more then can afford to pay living wages.

So judging by your off topic spam, you support fast food workers making $15 an hr minimum? Or did you just ignore the article and just post your usual partisan garbage (like a troll)?
