What is wrong with America?Nothing,nothing but greed,yup that dirty thing that is envied and scorned at the same time.It is what caused our economic woes at present and unless some realize that greed is good in small quantities but dangerous at large we are in for alot more problems for all of us rich and poor alike. You see the problem is that the big guys don't realize that its the middle and lower classes that make him the big guy(ie pay his paycheck) so everyone has to make a decent wage that they can live on or our economy collapses.The middle class is being squeezed not just by the goverment as some would have you believe but by their bosses too.Stagnent pay and benefits have been going on for years now. I personally have not had a pay raise in over 9 years oh there have been superficial additions a portion of my health care insurance(if you can call it that) and a raise in the rate we get for specialized(oversize loads)But my base pay and benefits has stayed stagnent.At the present time I am under a 10% pay cut due to the economy plus I am not running as many miles,so even less pay.No vacation or sick leave.And I'm not the only one in this situation.Could my company afford to keep my pay at pre-recession levels,could they do without new corperate vehicles?Could company executives pay for their own gas?Unless the big guys realize it the little guy is going away and maybe sooner than they think. Not only me but many people are not going to concerts and other big ticket events(sports).Who wants to watch a 10 nillion dollar athlete when you only got 20$ in your pocket?Every day I am thankful I have a job,but I am also mindful that is just a job.And I was looking for a job when I found this one...so...To those who don't have a job good luck and not all the answers are on the outside but within.
