Didja at Least get a KISS?!

Eegads. The hubby came home today with a paycheck. If you can call it that. He worked 2 weeks for the sucker. Two weeks of labor and for what? A measly pittance of $205. The poor guy works two jobs to try to make ends meet. This job - and check - is pitiful each time. Each time he comes home with one of these, I get mad.

Minimum wage. It's a minimum wage job. Here, that's $7 an hour. They take 18% for taxes and social security. On this job, they also take out UNION DUES. Because of the Union, he got 2/3 of what he made.

For an hour of his life, he brought home a grand total of $4.69. Now, I gotta ask ya: what politician, who votes on what the minimum wage will be, would exchange an hour of his/her life for $4.69? That's a fast food sandwich - or, at best, a sandwich and fries. Or, at the pumps, 1.14 gallons of gas.

Yes, this is called a "Sex Blog." The American worker is getting screwed!

Sounds like he needs to learn a new skill.....and a union that allows their workers to receive minimum wages???.....WTF?.....If I have to pay someone to represent me, I Damn well better get a lot more than minimum wages....I'd be firing off a letter to the "Brotherhood", and it wouldn't be very nice.

I believe everyone earns exactly what they are worth. Those without skills should be greatfull that they earn minimum wage. If it were up to me, I would pay my underlings maybe 2 dollars an hour.

Be glad that minimum is $7.00 an hour there, many folks are working for less, it's only $6.50 here. While I've made much much more than that for many a year, I have to wonder how anyone can support a family on that amount of money.
