I have worked since I was 15 years old, my husband and my daughter the same. We all have paid into SS and Medicare, none of us make fabulous wages but make living wages in order to make things more affordable in a productive society. There is a ladder of wages and some make it up the ladder but the majority stays within the living wage and modest means. With having a family buying a home and paying for your needs takes up the majority of your wages with a little bit of savings which will not allow you to retire comfortably. I believe the trade off is to be able to retire and enjoy the fruits of your hard earned labor and not so applauded jobs with a decent level of retirement, once again being modest.
I think you are being harsh and unrealistic. People making average wages which allows for affordable products makes the world go around. They should be able to retire with dignity and enjoy a portion of their life.
You are sounding like a right winger. Do you really wan to go there ?:)
It's the Obama administration and followers that are waging war against seniors. I don't agree with the GOPs stand on many women's issues, but the fiscal policies of this administration will destroy the country. What fills the void? When the economy of a country fails there are many possibilities. One could be that we have fewer rights for women. Don't take it for granted that we will always have the rights we have now. Take if from one that faught the fight in the late sixties and seventies. I fear that we will have the shaira laws imposed on us in the event that there is a failure of the government. Obama is not the one to get the economy back on track. Our best hope is Romney. Take care of the economy and then consentrate on other issues.

My husband, who works as a cabinet maker for a 50 year old manufacturing concern, has never seen a two-week paid vacation. Unpaid yes, but paid? No. I've never had a vacation paid by my employer, as I worked mostly for the State as a 'part-time' employee in the capacities of substitute teacher, and autism paraprofessional; positions for which paid vacation time was not part of the package. Before graduating college, I found all my work in fast-food establishments and convenience stores. Those folks don't offer paid vacations to those of us who are scheduled for 39 or fewer hours a week. Even as my own employer, in the massage gig, I never made enough money to go on vacation. It's mostly been a supplement to our ever-increasing rent and utility payments...not to mention groceries and gas.
Everyone lives with the good and bad of the decisions they made in life. If you don't like your position in life, job or beneifts, then change.

I agree.
I think people giving up their unions and buying into "personal reviews" have diminished things dramatically. The average worker buying into the Reagan philosophy of an "army of one" was an uneducated decision.
My husband has not seen a two week paid vacation in 25 years. We all deserve to retire and enjoy a portion of our lives with dignity.
While you weren't looking at 4:39 pm on Friday.....

The White House released its annual report to Congress on staff salaries. At 4:39 p.m. on Friday.

A quick review found the White House payroll appears to have grown since last year, going from $37.1 million in 2011 to $37.8 million in 2012. The number of employees listed also grew -- from 454 last year to 468 in 2012.

So much for the millions Obama's has put out of work, and especially the 878,000 women that have lost their jobs since he was sworn in.

First of all, not all jobs offer health insurance. In fact, the majority of jobs don't.

Walmart is the single largest private employer in the US and that VAST majority of it's employees are forced to be "part time" so that they don't have to offer insurance.

Where Walmart have driven out local small businesses, they are frequently the only place to work.

So, the people who live in these areas don't have "choices". It's either work at Walmart part time or don't work at all.

Second, REGARDLESS of what choices someone makes, under the previous system people could ALWAYS go to the Emergency room for health care even if they had no insurance and no means of paying for the services.

And the hospital HAD to treat them.

So, WHY would anyone who is on a tight budget choose health care when they can get away scottfree without buying it by just going to the ER?

This law forces personal responsibility. We can't mandate that hospitals don't treat people. We can't deny an unconscious accident victim medical treatment because we can't ask them who their provider is.

This is the best possible solution to the problem.

??? WTF are you talking about?

You want Obama to put 875,000 people to work in the White House?
468 employees ranging from the HEAD of security to TOP lawyers to Chefs to Janitors. Honestly, I'm surprised there's not MORE employees.

Remember, the White House is an OFFICE.

It's a bit late to change my degree program at this point, but I'd sure like to change my student loan payment from $398 a month to something lower - without capitalizing all the interest I owe, and pushing my principal up to twice what I originally borrowed...friggin' student loans are a ponzi scheme.

OK Le Bimbo, if fighting against an unjust war, fighting FOR civil rights and the rights of women makes one a communist then a communist I am!!

So what do we call you if you were in favor of an unjust war, against civil rights and the rights of women?

I have a few ideas and all of them contain expletives.

I will continue to take women's right for granted and will not settle for less.

I will not take chances with my vote and grant right wing thuggery a green light.

If you are worried about sharia law then worry about religious fanaticism in its entirety which encompasses the right wing/GOP.

Romney?

Yes I am SURE Mr. Romney will do what is best for himself for all of us!

Just for laughs (and I need a good chuckle today) I have a question: do you regard Hillary Clinton as a "strong feminist"?

How about a "role model"?

Yes I do. I also regard her as a strong woman.

I do not consider anyone a personal role model. I think to consider another a role model is fictitious.
