"Our nation guarantees equality" How could it possibly do that?
It guarantees equality of opportunity. Equality is not sameness.
"Those people" working for that wage do not deserve a house, a nice car, college education, a vacation, etc. That is an ENTRY LEVEL wage for unskilled workers. Why do you think the Community College system was started? So uneducated people would have an opportunity to go to college and better themselves at a greatly reduced cost, thereby increasing their value to the job market and EARNING higher pay! You people really DO live in a cosmos all your own. Unbelieveable!
