Why dont you just live at home until youre making more than 7.70 per hour?

Not an option? What about taking out a loan and living in a dorm until you get a degree enabling you to make more than 7.70 an hour?

Have a child, cant live in a dorm? Why dont you move in with the person you had a child with and potentially double your household income?



I guess the question is, why are a grown adult making $7.70/hr and spending your precious free time on the internet complaining about it?


You know two hundred years ago, the richest king on earth didnt have a a phone, a car, a microwave, a television, a hot water faucet. Why arnt you thankful for the fact that even as a los income person you probably have access to all of these? Why do you feel you are entitled to X amount of money? Why are t you lookin in the mirror? Why is it societies fault to drag you forward? Why shouldnt your choices determine your consequences?


People who make threads like this are either < 20 years old, or simply pathetic losers.

Right??

funny you mention food assistance programs, right now members of the govt are attempting to completely destroy food assistance programs. they might exist now, but if certain powerful interests get their way food assistance will disappear soon.

so you are saying someone working 80 hours a week should be forced to rely on food stamps and public transportation to meet their basic needs? btw public transportation is not free.

I made less than 6 dollars an hour working at Kmart in the 90s. But that was long ago. I do know people making 8.50 and dont get full time hours who live on their own though.

Its not as impossible as its made out to be. Especially when you get like 210 a month in food stamps. It can be done without foodstamps once you have a car paid off.

But so many people on that level of pay will throw money away on drugs and 120 a month phone plans they end up not being able to make it on their own.

Properly done....its hard NOT to be able to get by in america. You just have little hope of doing more than continuing to exist.

It depends on where you live.

If you are living in the NY metro area it's going to be impossible. If you live in the middle of nowhere Wisconsin(or any middle of nowhere place) then it's probably not that difficult. Probably can get something for like $400 month. You would have to work like 50 hours a month to pay the rent.. Even without all the welfare it's extremely doable.

But if you have kids or dependents you can throw that idea away.

He lives in the country. Where dirt roads are more common then sidewalks. Where driving down a road there arent many light poles. Lightning bugs and crickets are in abundance. Old ass Chevy's are parked in drive ways and have become "benches" for people to sit on, play cards and drink 40's. You can buy a house cheaper than Bobcats season tickets.
