The New Blue Collar: Temporary Work, Lasting Poverty And The American Warehouse

Commented Dec 20, 2011 at 12:23:33 in Business

“pinetrale, It doesn't matter what you prepared for nowadays, I have friends with engineering degrees having to wait tables thanks to the economic situation. Schlepping boxes and pallets is the new 'Skilled Labor" to teabaggers.”

pinetrale on Dec 20, 2011 at 12:40:41

“When I was in school and tuition was dirt cheap everyone I knew in engineering got some kind of job after graduation and they didnt even bother continuing for a masters till much later while on the job. Now the tuition is up 7 fold and jobs are scarce. Back then it seemed just worth it enough to go to school, but now its not money wise except for a few fields. I was able to make enough working around classes to cover all my bachelors expenses with no debt. In fact, I got pretty good at making money my junior and senior year and have had pretty good luck finding some inane job to work, and then often getting field promotions or more hours, but then I worked in High School too and you got to hustle and deliver. Almost never did I get overtime, but I didn't complain, thus kept the inane job. But I found, once in the door I did probabaly better than some, it all started with my paper route at 12 years old getting up at 6am and delivering a 50 home route come rain or shine, snow, or sleet. Didn't make much money as the customers always had excuses not to pay or delay, but what I learned was priceless.”

“Any time a person is shot in a country that has responsible guns laws, The NRA screams that it's proof that gun laws don't work. For every gun crime in The UK or Australia, there are thousands in America.”

“ok, so the number of gun deaths is equal to the number of automotive and prescription drug deaths. If guns weren't so easy to use, there would be 30,000 less deaths per year. then we can look at fixing pill mills and dangerous driving.”

“You are so right. Suicide, of course, is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE without a gun.

Just look at Japan. No guns and no suicide...”

Wilely Fox on Apr 15, 2014 at 13:04:30

“Cars are associated with more deaths annually than guns, but not by very much ---35,000 annually for cars and 30,000 for guns.

However, you are still incorrectly assuming that the deaths currently associated with firearms would not be replaced by deaths caused by another means. The issue is substitution... and is certainly not true with respect to the ~20,000 gun related suicides. “[R]emoving an easy and favored method of suicide was not likely to affect substantially the overall suicide rate because other methods would be chosen.”World Health Organization, Changing Patterns in Suicide Behavior

Further, since murder is an intentional act, the person with the evil intent will merely seek another means to accomplish the desired result.

What you would eliminate is the 600 accidental deaths associated with firearms if you were to magically make firearms disappear. Conversely and since almost all of the 35,000 vehicle associated deaths annually are accidental, almost all of them would disappear if cars were to disappear.”

“I had a TeaParty nut tell me that recalls will never happen, because the voters elected the governor and state reps only a few months ago, and that the tide toward 'Tea Party Candidates' still exists. Yeah, maybe, but Walker and his band of robber barrons never campaigned on union busting, they brought that little surprise out after the elections, and have alienated a great number of Wisconsin voters in the process.

If they think they are on the right side of history, simply reintroduce the legislation and vote on it again, I bet they couldn't find enough representatives to back Walker's union busting bill now”

“I moved to the UK from the US in March and am amazed at the difference between mobile phone service here. First, it's much, much cheaper in the UK than in the US, there are many more options, prepay, month to month or 12/24 month contracts. Many of the 24 month contracts allow new phones after 12 months, data plans are dirt cheap, etc.

That being said, I had AT&T for 7+ years when we lived in the US and never had a problem with service, customer service or billing.”

“The 'Sting operations' (In reality, cleverly, decietfully edited videos, made to say what the right wing organization producing them wanted) proved nothing.

“But this flys in the face of the American way. If businessmen can't get filthy rich off of the injured and ill what's the point of healthcare? Oh and lawyers too. If healthcare doesn't have to be litigated how will all the lawyers stay fat and sassy? In turn who then would contribute millions to politicians? You sound like a job killer. Our current system is a massive cash cow for millions of ambulance chasers, lobbyists, congressmen & insurance providers whose main concern is how to suck as much loot out of helpless sick and injured "losers" as possible. It's not a healthcare system at all but a sophisticated racket.”

“And right now we're in discussions as to whether or not In vitro fertilization should be covered by our health care system to allow those who are not able to concieve naturally an alternative.

So yes, we do really like our health care system. Honestly, it isn't something we ever really think about because we've always had it. To us, it's just one of our basic rights paid for by our taxes.”
