    Are we both supposed to live in the tiny room together? I’m not into sleeping in the same bed with another guy, and there is only room for one bed.

    Sorry…but I don’t think he will go for that since my landlord is his brother, and his father is a rich professor, so he has nothing to worry about.

    That is not CT. A fleabag room in a bad neighborhood is $150 per week.

    You say “If someone has to bunk with 3 or 4 other people to make living on $9/hr work, then that’s what they have to do”.

    So that is your answer for all the former middle class Americans that worked hard all their lives now??

    MANY of us are survivors!

    That does not meant that is should be that way NOR that we should accept it being that way!

    Get a clue, fakk2. . .
    Are you not aware of the MASS import of foreign labor over the past 20 years. BS degree holders from India-China-Pakistan left and right while our leaders cry the need for Math and Science professionals to the public.

    A 65,000 annual limit has fallen by the wayside to climb to hundreds of thousands of visas issued each year.

    WHY ARE THEY ISSUEING THE VISAS DURING THIS RECESSION AT ALL ????

    Don’t even get me started on the illegal immigration issue, I live in Houston and can’t even get a laborer’s job – they’d have to pay me legal minimum wage!

    WasMiddleClass, you’re in CT ? High cost of EVERYTHING there.

    @"Someone working minimum wage for 30 years can put enough away during that time period to at least pay for 1 year’s living expenses."

    What planet do you live on?

    Minimum wage has always been WAY below the poverty level in America.

    Do you realize 99ers started running out of benefits almost a year ago?

    Do you realize many have been out of work for well over three years?

    Do you realize most Americans live paycheck to paycheck?

    OK Republican propagandist,

    I lost my last real job in 2007 when everything went to hell.

    Explain to me why under the last Republican administration did 100% of the income growth in America go to the richest 10%, with 75% going to the elite 1%, while everyone else s income in the other 90% went DOWN?

    Prices skyrocketed while most peoples income went down, but you say,

    “is it everyone else’s fault they can’t manage money and save up for retirement or being out of work for an extended period of time?”

    Typical Republican answer.

    It is all the fault of the unemployed.

    The Republicans say their plan to create jobs is cut money for jobs training, Head start, cops, heating assistance, social security, medicare, and everything that helps most Americans. But they will not touch military spending that is already three times more than the next highest country. They are already talking about more tax cuts, which I’m sure will benefit mostly the rich once again.

    Our good jobs continue to get shipped to other countries for the benefit of the rich with the blessings of our government. More and more become homeless as plans are made to cut what little help is left from our government. The rich are getting a lot richer with the help of Washington as the rest of us are being sacrificed.

    The problem is much larger than just what happened over the past few years.

    Funny…but didn’t less regulation cause so many jobs to go overseas?

    We can’t afford to “go green”? You mean we should just depend on oil forever?

    What is a “fair tax”? Even lower taxes for the rich?

    I don’t consider 2.3% for the middle class, and around a 6% tax cut for the rich fair. That does not even count the capitol gains tax cut worth billions to the rich, and nothing to most….
