What's Wrong With the U.S. Picture?

The average US salary is now 24k - can you live on that with a family, outside of a few poverty-stricken states? Also, does anyone know if that includes all the executives and hedge-fund managers making over 100 million a year, and pulling money out of the consumer system? If so, the real average is much lower- that's the problem with stats, a few at the top skewer the results into a "positive spin" (fed talk) We also don't know how many so-called "illegal workers" are making even less than that while being paid in cash, so wealthy employers can not only avoid supporting the country through the IRS, but also line their own pockets at the expense of everyone. My theory: if you can afford to own a business, you can afford to abide by the laws.

If you are NOT properly capitalized, you should not be in business. Even the Bible warns people to not "impoverish their employees", that those hiring and paying people are "responsible for their well-being", and tells working people to not work for unfair employers because it perpetuates all the sorrow.

Since we lead the world in bankruptcies, murders, prisoners, guns, insanity, homeless: something is WRONG!

One definition of insanity is "doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result."
