I actually went to Concord Mills yesterday because we bought a shirt for my son last week and the store forgot to remove the security tag. I was pretty surprised to see that it wasn't especially crowded. While we were out, we went to Wal-Mart too for some basic stuff, and it was also uncrowded. Maybe people are finally getting smart about this black friday stuff?

Unskilled labor garners unskilled labor wages. It is as simple as that.

Want a better paying job....actually give a damn about school and education.


But don't borrow the $100,000 or so it'll take to go to public school cause that shows a lack of personal responsibility.

So basically you should just blame everyone else for your shitty life and shitty education/career choices. Got it.


before you go on yet another one of your indignant speils maybe consider the fact that no one here takes you seriously

Yeah, let's not take someone seriously who is a financial and business success. Let's just listen to people like you continue to blame others for your shitty and financially poor existence. We could learn so much on how NOT to achieve success from you.

My parents paid for zero of my college education. I worked 3 jobs and paid for 100% of my education without borrowing a cent.

I did not party for 4 years...I lived at home for 3 of those 4 years...I never went on spring break....I worked 60 hrs a week during summer.

You don't have to go into debt to get an education.

i think we should just revert to the caste system guys

i mean seriously if you're 18 and you don't have the means to go to college and be 'upwardly mobile' lolololol then it's because it's either your fault or it's just meant to be. either pull yourself up by your bootstraps like everyone ever who's successful did your just read some books on dharma and deal with it.

tired of you pinhead commies and your altruistic benevolence crap. i mean when i say i believe everything i have was given to me by god DOESN'T ACTUALLY MEAN GOD GAVE IT TO ME OR ANYTHING so stop bringing that up, all of you

Walmart is actually better than most retailers in that they DO give yearly raises, as shitty as they may be. I was just railing against the idea that someone's going to start out making 12 dollars an hour working anywhere in Walmart.

That doesn't surprise me, except the part about the cat juggling.

I paid for my education, and I didn't party in college. I graduated with a whopping $1,100 of debt, and worked a few shitty jobs until I got enough experience to actually get a good one. And I never thought it was unfair, I just figured that I was paying my dues and if I kept at it, I would eventually be successful. That was the "social contract" I was raised to believe in. I don't think it was the same one referred to earlier in this thread, though.

FWIW, I remember delivering newspapers at 14 on Christmas Eve. Child labor, sub-minimum wage, AND working a holiday. Scarred for life, huh?
