Postby saltyfeet on Mar 10 2019, 10:02am

Ive herd it ol. Im poor because of this or because of that. The government kip me poor. The corporations kip me poor. My situation kip me poor. The weather kip me poor. The color os ma eskin kip me poor. Blah blah blah

No

Ur poor cuz u don work mor.

There. I said it.

U don wanna work mor. Ur bills too much? Work mor. U drownin in debt? Work mor. Ur child suport payment is due? Work mor.

Ull find out that if u do, ull be geting ahed faster an ebentualy, ull have disposable income like me.

U kip wastin ur time thinkin an blamin others. Time is cash an ur wastin it.

U kent take thinkin and blamin to the bank.

Aside from the shoot me in the head annoying grammar act, this sadly makes sense

Might be the smartest thing you ever attempt to write

*works 100h/week at minimum wage*

*still makes <$40k/year before taxes*

Not my life, but current USA minimum wage has always struck me as criminally low. One week is 168h, by the way.

Not debating op here cause I'm not quite dumb enough to bother, but minimum wage is awful and I haven't gotten to complain about it in a bit.

Olso, im not sure cuz i don do my payroll but i think the minimum wage in LA is 12.5
So 12.5 x 40 hrs x 52 weaks=26 k
IF you work mor than 40 hrs there come the overtime pay wich is higher than base pay. I think from 40 to 60 hrs is time an a haf(agen, not sure). That wud be 18.75 x20hrsx52 weaks=19,500. Theeeen double pay kicks in so the rest of 100 wud b 40hr x 25 per hr x 52 weaks=52 k

So if u workt 100 hrs/weak for minimum wage u’d have more than 97 k before taxes.

97 k for workin ur as off. Vs 26k bin a couch potato

See, I instinctively don't want to feed the trolls, but I know there are people out there who really, genuinely believe that type of idea. I'm a bit torn between feeding you versus thought generation

Whats to trol about?
The more u put in, the more u get out.
Now, habin sed that, the only tradeoff wud be that u don get to espend much time doin other things.
No time to get drunk. No time to go on a milion dates.no time to waste ur time watchin tv.
What ur tryin to say is the same thing ibe bin teling ppl not to do... words an thinkin about it.
You can estay where u r and think ol the infinite posibilityes y ur poor
Or
U can estart takin action an estart doing.

Ppl wanna work 40 hrs and be with family, gf, in front of a tv set? Ok thats fine but don complain u kent make ends meat.
u CAN help it
