Grandma, the poverty line is a JOKE! Most of the persons whom the government defines as in poverty are not poor in any ordinary sense of the term. In 2005, the typical household defined as "poor" by the government had a car and air conditioning. For entertainment, the household had two color televisions, cable or satellite TV, a DVD player, and a VCR. If there were children in the home, the family had a game system, such as an Xbox or a PlayStation. In the kitchen, the household had a refrigerator, an oven and stove, and a microwave. Other household conveniences included a clothes washer, clothes dryer, ceiling fans, a cordless phone, and a coffee maker. That's not poverty.

You said you were able to make it on minimum wage for years. Did that include health insurance also?

Health insurance can be VERY expensive, especially for a family, if it's not provided for by one's employer. Unfortunately, many employers these days (for example, Walmart) avoid such responsibility by ensuring that employees are part-time, and don't qualify for employer-subsidized health insurance.

Jed: While I was mistaken about minimum wage growth, the US government threshold for poverty, for a family of four, in 2013, is $23,550 a year. A person working 40 hours a week, at $7.25 an hour, for 52 weeks, with no vacations or sick time, will earn $15,080 a year. Please tell me where, in the 48 contiguous states, one person can support a family of four, with medical, food, housing, transportation, and all the other expenses a growing family needs, when they are living $6,470 below the poverty line?
---Grandma on 9/3/13

Grandma, It was just a few years ago that I was adequately able to provide for a family of 4 on minimum wage without any government assistance. It wasn't until the past 2-3 years that I have been making a little more than minimum wage.

It also appears that YOU need to do your research. Your claim that minimum wage has not gone up in decades is completely false. Minimum wage has gone up $2.10 since 2006. Actually, over the past decade, minimum wage has increased a little more than the cost of living has.
---Jed on 9/3/13

Jed: Please do some research. Back when you, Shira and I were earning minimum wage it was possible to live on minimum wage. But, you can't deny that it has not gone up in decades. Yet, the cost of living has. Reaserch the poverty line, and you will see that I'm speaking the facts.
---Grandma on 9/3/13

Grandma, a person can take care of themselves on minimum wage without welfare. I provided for my wife and 2 kids making minimum wage for years without government assistance. And I was the only wage earner in my house. And we didn't even really struggle.
---Jed on 9/3/13

If I might add Sisters, one thing I notice alot of young men especially and young women have not gotten reality of marriage comes RESPONSIBILITY!

alot of them do not know what to do like pay rent, prepare for expecting a baby, things that are apply for married life!

They are all into the love stuff! Reality check comes when like now, the guy realizes wow! I got to go to work? Not all but yes! There are people who live a fairytale romance and horrified at the reality of a real marriage..

Shira: those hard workers, at minimum wage, are dependent on the government for food stamps and Medicaid.

As for China, Congress gives tax breaks to the corporations that sent our jobs overseas. That began during the Bush II administration. As of last year, those tax breaks were still in effect.

Labor is much cheaper overseas. Unfortunately the working conditions there are horrendous.
---Grandma on 9/2/13

grandma, actually I do understand. believe it or not, I do. I have watched a nation of hard workers become the dependents of the government. government needs to let up on the small business and for that matter large business and remove all the red tape so the Chinese can stop making all the mega bucks.
---shira4368 on 9/2/13

Moreover, most employees at Walmart and fast food restaurants are not just starting out. They're older, with families to support. People whose jobs were outsourced are usually older, and when their unemployment is exhausted, what's left but minimum wage. Hard to start over when you have a family to support.
---Grandma on 9/2/13

Shira: What you don't understand is that minimum wage has not gone up in decades. But, the cost of living has skyrocketed. If the starting minimum wage had kept constant with inflation, it would be $22 an hour, instead of $7.25 an hour. I challenge you to live on today's minimum wage.

Also, I am observant. You are talking about stereotypes, which are not the norm. I worked in the inner city, and saw the effects of the poverty of minimum wage.

It is true, that 40 hours at $7.25 an hour is BELOW today's poverty line, according to U.S.govenment poverty line.
---Grandma on 9/2/13

gramma, I agree with you but on the other hand, I did mention walmart minimum wage job is on the ladder of life. we all start at the bottom. makes me wonder how many have cell phones and $200.00 sneakers, a new car. just be observant. I know what its like to live on a minimum wage salary. once I couldn't even afford a little tube of lipstick at 29 cents. I also know what its like to see the outside from inside your home...thru the walls. we now live in a me me me society.
---shira4368 on 9/2/13

Shira: A minimum wage job, at full time hours, still leaves the employee living BELOW the poverty line, and eligible for Food Stamps and Medicaid. If an employee wants to live without those benefits, they need to work 70 hours a week, and live in a cheap apartment with no vehicle. If the employee has children, that means they never see their kids, or spouse if they have one.

Sure there are minimum wage jobs. A person can't live on the income, unless they work every waking hour, which means never having time for school to qualify for better employment.
---Grandma on 9/1/13

gramma, you can look in every paper and see the jobs. no one wants to do those lowly jobs. walmart is a free enterprise at work. everyone has the same opportunity. walmart should not be considered a career but a stepping place while we are being educated. what kind of work does someone want who does not even have a high school education. most people have an opportunity to go to school. I know there is an occasional one with some circumstances but they are rare. I had an opportunity and I chose to get married at 18 and have children. that is just what I was taught to do. I'm glad things have changed.
---shira4368 on 9/1/13

I was giving you the truth the way you give it. You told Rita she doesn't know who you might know here, in your defense of calling me naive. My reply was a correction, because if you knew me, you'd know I'm the opposite. I've experienced stuff, not voluntarily, that many people can't comprehend. I've also hung out with many people that most good Christians cringe at the thought of knowing.

People, there is no need for hostility. Everyone has their personal reasons why people do not have a job. It is not always because they do not want to work, it all depend on location, and jobs available. Some area's where jobs appear, they most likely go to relatives of those who work there already. There is no need to get upset at anyone. I do not like those who can work and don't even try. Some others believe that they deserve to get more money because of their education. There is many reasons why people are out of work. It is not always for one reason.

Karen: You don't know me at all. If you did, you would never have called me naive.

I am surprised that you would equate your rude, ignorant behavior with Christ's righteousness. He called out sin. He knew the Pharisees' thoughts, and the money changers were sinning. You just behave rudely and claim it's righteousness.

However, my daughter had what some, looking from the outside, might call chronic employment problems, given the sorts of judgments that are out there, based primarily on superficial, yet partial evidence.

Steven, you say,
" Have you not read the bible? about end time prophesy?" about how christians will be persecuted? the warnings to end time christians?"
Christians have been persecuted all through history. Many apostles had their heads cut off. End time prophecy nowhere states genuine Christians will fall and be lost. People that fall from the faith were never committed to Christ. "They went out from us, but they were not of us, for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us, but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us" (1 John 2:19). Jesus sustains the believers to the end guiltless in the day of the Lord Jesus Christ" ( 1 Cor.1:7-9).

Acts 17:30 "And the times of this ignorance God winked at, but now commandeth all men every where to repent:..."
This fellow has man as a passive non-agent who God sifts to and fro, believes in only one force/agent in the world, God.

See these:
"Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:"
Matthew 13:37_39 "He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man,
The field is the world, the good seed are the children of the kingdom, but the tares are the children of the wicked one,
The enemy that sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the world, and the reapers are the angels."
---Nana on 8/22/13

Mark_V.: "If you are talking about genuine Christians, they don't turn their backs on Christ. They are slaves to God. Bought and paid for."

Are you so naive that you do not understand? Have you not read the bible? about end time prophesy? about how christians will be persecuted? the warnings to end time christians?

And about how christians will leave the faith in droves? Why is that? Because their love have fallen into dispair. They have been caught up in Satan's web - the web of what is happening in today's world. Oh faithless generation, how much longer?

Mark V, You may be safe now in your little corner of the world, but the time is near that will change all your comfort. May God have mercy on your ignorance.

They Do take out taxes, also, they take out for van ( transport) you to the worksite . Some here out of business, for Good thank God! sexualharrassment,cheating illegals & attacked physically,coming out /work.

grandma....I too have seen those lines for day laborers. They are much smaller since the government has been cracking down on illegals more. Many cities have outlawed those day labor lines around their towns. Those lines were still around when this country was doing very well. While ministering in the homeless population we found that many of those who want to drop off the radar go to those lines to get work. No taxes to pay that way and no child support taken out of their payments.
---KarenD on 8/20/13

Karen: I am definitely not naive. I questioned you because I believe you were generalizing about why people had quit that job.

As to whether or not people can find a job, I tend to look at how many jobs were outsourced to countries like China and India, and then I look at the classified ads where I live. I also research the different states' unemployment rates. I believe it is ignorant to say anyone who wants to work can find a job. I've seen the lines where they hire day laborer a.
---Grandma on 8/19/13

RitaH...My answer is simple. If you knew my husband you would know that he is not disappointed in my comments on here. He does not believe in treating adults like children. When devoted missionaries and pastors in other countried are being persecuted, imprisoned and even killed, many Christian parents in this country coddle their grown children and enable them to not grow up. It is naive to think people cannot find jobs when there are jobs all over this country and people don't want to make sacrifices to get and keep a job.

---Rita_H on 8/19/13

Steven, what caused you to answer with this statement?
"Satan is the god of this world and his time is short and is doing everything in his power to break the souls of men so that man will turn his back on God." What passage states that satan is using his power to break the souls of men so that man will turn there backs on God? And what does that have to do with people losing their jobs and not finding one? All descendants of Adam are condemned already. how can satan break the souls of men away from God? They are already turned away, already doing the desires of their father the devil. If you are talking about genuine Christians, they don't turn their backs on Christ. They are slaves to God. Bought and paid for.
---Mark_V. on 8/19/13

Jed, I agree that a loving parent puts the childs needs and safety first. My daughter did not want to quit for that reason, but I did not want to see a very bad situation become worse. When several men would gang up on her, cornering her, I could not in good conscience tell her to stay. Id rather assume responsibility for a time than allow her to be abused. She quickly got another job, 2 in fact.

For me, putting food in my kids mouths is more important than my comfort or even safety at work. I would and have worked in places where I was harrassed and treated unfairly until I could secure other work because feeding my family is more important than my feelings or comfort, and providing for my family is nobody's responsibility except mine. But apparently, that's just me. When it gets to the point where providing for your family becomes more important than yourself, then you will never have trouble gettint work.

"Unless they had another job already lined up, any reason for quitting is a stupid reason". Oh really? As a mom, I encouraged my daughter with 2 small children to quit her job when she was sexually harrassed.

You wrote: Unless they had another job already lined up, any reason for quitting is a stupid reason. You don't quit your job unless you are moving on to a better job that you already have lined up.

While it may be harder to find a new job if you don't already have one, it's naive to assume tha this is the ONLY criterion one should use for quitting.

There are many reasons to quit a job. if one is harrassed by an employer or co-workers, or asked to do something unethical (e.g. lie to customers or do transactions under the table), or if logistics are impractical (e.g. you work nights, have no car, and buses don't run, so you have to walk or take a cab to/from work), or if the job affects your health, etc.

I am not talking about chit-chat. My friend worked at an insurance pre-authorization center. If people called in and didn't have their details together, he had to sit and wait for them. He COULD have said "call back when you're prepared" to increase his call numbers, but that would violate ethics and company policy (although many employees did that).

If someone batched ten authorizations that took 20 minutes rather than 10 3 minute calls, he would get credit for 1 20 minute call (horrid) rather than 10 2 minute authorizations (excellent) because they measured by call, not successful authorization. I.e. he got actively penalized for doing his job well, rather than being rude to customers to boost his numbers.

One suggestion I have been telling my students (I am California state certified to teach college) is to build a solid financial foundation as soon as possible. One way is to purchase an apartment building. You live in one apartment while your tenants pay mortage and upkeep. At least you'll have a roof over your head and food on the table. Credit? Not yours. The banks will mostly look at your tenant's credit.

You wrote: A call center where I live cannot keep employees.

Call center jobs tend to be highly stressful, and have high turnover rates because people just burn out.

They also tend to favor quantity over quality, so employees who try to give quality service to customers rather than churning calls as quickly as possible get penalized rather than rewarded.

I know one person who lost his call center job for just this reason. Several months later, that call center was severely under-staffed because the had let many people go for the same reason, and their short-sighted call metrics had come back to haunt them.

THERE ARE JOBS OUT THERE. So many people just don't really want to work. A call center where I live cannot keep employees. Those who do want to work won't move for the job. Throughout my 45+ career (many of those years as a single mother) I did whatever it took to have a job. I NEVER had food stamps or APPLIED for any kind of help from the government. Our generation was taught that receiving WELFARE was something that was not acceptable. Food stamps is WELFARE. I do realize that there are those who need food stamps to feed their family since they chose to have too many kids. Those who truly need food stamps (disabled and senior citizens) can consider it is a chance to get back some of the taxes they paid.
---KarenD on 8/16/13

Jed, I believe there is truely many people out there that cannot find a job. A lot of it depends where they live. Small towns are the worse. If a job comes out, a family member usually gets it. The others without work don't even get a chance to apply. Oh, we can say, why don't they move? Many have their homes and don't want to lose them. Of course there is also man who looked for a job for a long time, and later just give up. They get lazy. But every case is different, there is many circumstances involve. It is not just cut and dry.

Shira: Right now, people working full time, getting paid minimum wage, qualify for food stamps and Medicaid. Also, we have 5,000 of our military personnel who receive food stamps.

Most minimum wage workers live below the poverty line in the U.S. It could be all of them. We have millions of people who are poor, working full time.

Still, the rate for unemployment in a lot of states, including mine, is over 7%. In mine, it's 8.7% That only counts the people receiving unemployment benefits. It does not count the people who have exhausted their benefits, or are working part time.

Walmart and McDonald's both tell their new employees that they should plan on working 70 hours a week if they want to survive in today's economy.

If he is capable of working but WILL NOT DO SO then his stomach might be the first place to start. STOP filling it for him. Explain that the food appears on the table because someone worked to place it there, even if it came from a food bank. If you did all the collecting, preparing, cooking, serving, cleaning up after all meals whilst he does nothing then that should change. He must be kept active even if only peeling vegetables and using a vacuum cleaner.

You are his wife, not his servant or slave.

If he has money from you for other things then stop giving it to him. If you are 100% homekeeper and mother then he should be provider. If you provide he should keep house etc. This will never change unless you become very tough

Tracy, if you are a Christian, no advice will comfort you other then the dependecy you should have with God. God is the One you should turn to when you find you cannot control something in your life. Go to Him, not to man. Many will give you their own experiences and none will be just like what you are experiencing. Put your faith in God and you will see wonders come from Him.

What about ALL of us pray for it is written that we must confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Even though you don't know this person's name, God knows who we are praying for.

If he has a problem finding work it's about time he created his own work. There are many books at the library showing how to start your own business. Business Opportunity magazines can be bought at the supermarkets that will give ideas about making money in one's spare time.

Remember that a long period of unemployment while unsuccessfully job hunting can remove all motivation to find work.

This is NOT the easiest economy to seek a job.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
