>>204595>I'll have to remember that, next time I'm deciding how much other people are going to charge for what I need to buy.
I think it depends on how you define the word need
If you are in debt because you needed a can of soup to eat today and you have literally no money, that makes sense.
If you are in debt because you need
cable internet, thats your own fault.
In ether case its your own fault, but at least in the first one I could have sympathy.
>Well, that's nice of them, but then it doesn't explain why USAers in the 50's could earn a living wage, when today we're struggling. Industry isn't any more bombed these days than it was back then.
Sure it does. In the 50s we had a manufacturing behemoth that was geared for war, making tanks, and now it could make sedans. Now we make hardly anything, so there, its all outsourced and the jobs go with it. Our industry might not have been bombed out, but it is gone. Mostly moved to places with cheaper labor and no minimum wages. That didnt happen in the 50s as much, because normally it was more expensive to manufacture something in another country and import it back, than it was to just pay someone here more money to work for you.
Also, it depends on what you consider a living wage.
Told you i would have a responce haha
