People don’t want to work, they are claiming working anywhere doesn’t pay a living wage. This is false, to be quite frank a majority of jobs do pay a living wage now. Most of them have raised their wages to $20 an hour. People don’t want to work because the Government gave out stimulus checks for three months straight. Now, I know most people spent this stimulus on bills and rent, yet others spent it on frivolous things. Or Bulked buys to sell it at a higher price, screwing everyone else over.
This pandemic has shown the true colors of our nation, the greed, the laziness of people. It needs to stop, a fourth stimulus shouldn’t be approved. People need to get off the couch and work period. The stimulus checks have caused inflation and other problems that a majority of us cannot afford to deal with.
Gas prices up to $4 a gallon, food product price hikes, rent hikes, cost of living even went up. How do you think they’re paying back the loans from the Federal Reserve System? By raising prices and taxes. Businesses are suffering because they too have to pay out more to get products delivered to their stores. And the reason prices are rising, is because people refuse to work. And Truckers are desperately needed to deliver said products.
Warehouse workers are getting paid up to $20 an hour, you start at $16 to $17 an hour. Stay long enough and get that experience you’ll get $20 an hour. Truckers are the same amount of pay, this is plenty to pay bills and rent. In addition to this if you can’t afford food you can get assistance through your local SNAP office. They will even help you get medical insurance, especially, during this pandemic. There is nothing wrong with asking for assistance when you are working. However, expecting “free” money without consequences is NOT OKAY.
Other jobs with higher pay:
Walmart – $16 to $17
Target – $15 to $17
Lowes – $16 to 20
Home Depot – $15 to $18
Restaurants – $15
All that can equate to $2000 a month, plus the $300 to $600 a month for partial unemployment. This is plenty to live on, for now, it’s plenty to pay rent and bills. The people who honestly need the help are not getting it because everyone else is screwing them over.
Disabled, and veterans, as well as the homeless, need the help. I am honestly tired of this situation, of seeing abled body people sit there and collect, and then demand in a “petition” another stimulus while not caring about the consequences of their actions. Just because you got laid off doesn’t mean you stop working or even looking for a job. You work something else until that particular business comes back again and you go back there. It’s not a difficult concept.
I do understand the struggle, I am not writing this lightly either. I have been in everyone’s shoes of not being able to afford rent, mortgage, or bills. So has my friend, who also writes in this journal. We all have struggled throughout the years, we have all lost and had to start over. Yet we continued to pull ourselves back up and rebuild. We went out there and worked, or started our own home business, just to make ends meet. Robbed Peter to pay Paul or Tom, Dick and Harry. Whichever the case maybe we still got out there and “Worked”.
Yet I must stress this issue, Asking for another stimulus will not do any good. It will cause more inflation, it will cause more businesses to close down, due to lack of employees. No employees, means no services, meaning business shuts down. However, everyone is screaming open up the businesses, well business can’t be open if they have no one to run or operate them.
People forgot that it takes people to operate stores and truck deliveries. The populace, or should I say this era of people is causing bills for the future generation. Just as the past generation caused for everyone. If more money is loaned out from the Federal Reserve System, there will be nothing left to retire on and no one will be collecting social security either. Because it will be all gone, this is a fact.
If you want all this inflation gone and the economy to get back on track, then people need to work. If you need two jobs, then work two jobs. Unfortunately, money does make the world go round and our livelihood does depend on it.
Let’s get back to work America, let’s build everything back up again.
