Quite the contrary. I'm very well read and informed.
I don't know your work background, but I suspect financial services. If that's the case the general public doesn't think much of your field. Elected leaders have condemned your greed; religious leaders have condemned your kind for worshipping materialism and ignoring humanity. Yeah, I don't make much money, but I'm enlightened and I have a social conscience. And most important I have empathy. What do you have in the end?
I notice that you still haven't told us what your degree is in .. that is if you actually have a college degree as you claimed.

First I work in technology not finance. So most of your tirade doesn't apply to me.
Second you ask what I have .... A home, a car, a wife, 3 children, a very good job, and the drive and motivation to keep progressing.
Take what I have and then what you have and see what feeds you first.
What did you do? Invent a new way to put diapers on piss clams?

Silly argument.
If the jobs move, so should the workers. Mexicans figured it out. How come we can't?
ask your corporate buddies why they couldn't move Americans to Mexico, dumbass...then try to present an argument which makes sense

The border works both ways, dear.
I've no coorate buddies. I take care of my own. I'm a proud American citizen. My family understands that work is rewarding, both monetarily and spiritually. Once you rely on others to provide for you, you are in debt. Make your own way, but don't expect others to provide for you. They're not always able to give you what you want when you want it. Why is this so hard to understand?

You can't be serious. You let greedy corporations outsourcing jobs off the hook and instead place the blame on workers for not uprooting and chasing their jobs to Asia.

I am very serious.
Why complain about illegal aliens taking your jobs but refuse to go where you think the jobs really are?
Somehow, immigrants find a way to survive here in America. You can't? Take a tip from the immigrants. Stop complaining and go where the jobs are.

McDonald's and other fast-food restaurants should pay a living wage because it's the right and moral thing to do.
Second, as I said before, a living wage makes economic sense because workers are happy and more productive along with the fact their buying power increases. It's one way to shift wealth from the rich to the middle-class and poor.
What would be a 'living wage'? The national average annual income is $50K. So you work 30 hours a week for 50 weeks at McDonalds, you should get at least $33 an hour to be average. That would make for happy workers and $10 burgers.

Why? Because I don't advocate paying you for something that you don't have?

Or is it because I called you out for the loser that you are?

That would require effort on Joe's part. Joe wants the job to come to him and pay him what he thinks that he is worth, regardless of whether he has marketable skills or not.

True, a boring job. But then again, those people that write code are not generally on welfare, they are the ones paying for it.

I am very serious. Why complain about too much government? Stop complaining. Go where there is NO government. You and the rest of the teabagger nuts belong in Somalia.
