Please tell me your opinion if you are not a?
“Professional” – CEO, etc. Think about this (I am in Florida, USA) — 20 years ago my father-in-law retired making $ 8.00 an hour BUT his mortgage was $ 125.00 a month. The AVERAGE pay rate for the regular working person NOW is $ 8.00-$ 9.00 and hour but, for instance, the average home sells for $ 300,000.00 in our area. Rent for a 2 bedroom apt. is about $ 1,200.00. Can someone tell me HOW this happened? I mean, I know we can’t all be financially rich but it is truly not right. Most of us are living on a prayer anymore and this is the USA!! Most of us don’t have health insurance (me for one with serious health issues and can’t get help because can’t afford it – YET make too much $ $ HA HA to get aid). How did this happen to us?????
Ok – here’s a little more info…my husband DID go back to school under the Pell grant -got part of the way thru – straight As and Pell Grant cancelled at last minute. We are pushing 50 ourselves, no health insurance and serious health problems (yes, possibly deadly). I’ve worked since I was 13 years old so saying I dont’ get off my ass is quite incorrect, sir.
