Five children and no babydaddy around to pay child support? One I can understand but having FIVE with no plan of how to raise them is either stupidity or just a plan to suck freebies from the taxpayers like a tick on a dog! Those lower paying jobs should be a small source of income while you're bettering yourself by a GED,college,or a trade school. There are plenty of programs out there for unemployed and underemployed but people have to get off the tit and go make their lives better for themselves instead of demanding it be handed to them. The menial jobs out there should be a stopping off point in your career instead of a final destination! As far as the $15.00 an hour,many people on that march aren't willing or capable of delivering $15.00 worth of work.

ya can thank all of those illegal immigrants for driving down wages and job security.

they work for most anything then sneak off to the welfare food stamp office steal more goods and services from the American tax payers.
they dump off non English speaking kids under educated kids and expect us to educate them.
arrest and deport all the illegals before they do any more damage to this economy.

Hey!!! Point that finger in the other direction. We have Americans that don't get married and have lots of kids so they can mooch off the government welfare and live in public housing but the babydaddy is around "living off the streets". He comes home when he thinks the welfare people are gone home and heads out early the next morning. The tax payers are paying for that.The kids in the projects are wild,disrespectful,and are dumped on the school system to train. Some they can,some they can't. The economy was ruined by (1)the lack of work ethic of the American workers. The immigrants work harder just as they did as this country was developing.(2) Americans putting Americans out of work by buying imported goods instead of products made here. The trickle down effect was the closing of all the small town factories making people find it harder to get a job. Don't blame the immigrants for our problems,blame the American people.
