That doesn't sound good, does it?
Only in America!
Well, that's not true. This sort of thing can happen anywhere people think it's ok to exploit other people. To let their misery subsidize your luxury.
I think more and more people are getting fed up with this idea that it's ok for the rich and strong to take advantage of the weak and vulnerable just because they can.
"Working poor" needs to become universally recognized as an oxy-moron.
That's why this move among the most exploited, the fast-food and retail folks, for a $15 an hour wage is the brightest moment for workers since the great human rights upheavals of the 1960's.
