Big Banks Don't Pay A Third Of Tellers Enough To Live On: Study

Big Banks Don't Pay A Third Of Tellers Enough To Live On: Study

Commented Dec 5, 2013 at 14:30:53 in Business

“Doesn't matter, does it? Banks or the Waltons. Too big to fail or just plain greedy. But we have to see the difference between bank employees and McDonald workers. Banks do have more lea way in wages. Franchises have a harder time of it. They have to adhere to the rules and do what the corporation contracted them to do. Taxpayers should not have to subsidize any 40 a week worker.”

Many Young Americans Blame Colleges For Rising Student Debt

Many Young Americans Blame Colleges For Rising Student Debt

Commented Dec 3, 2013 at 14:17:09 in College

“Some people receive a very good education and emerge with little or no debt. Some do not receive a good education and emerge with a lot of debt. Since most students don't even have an idea of what they want to do, the first few years should be in a good but inexpensive school near home. Along with some sort of job that would have them use a budget and not rely on parents. If you got a good education, be proud to pay the loan back. If you received a poor education, its probably your fault, so now pay up because that in its self is an education.”

“It is because the right is cheering from the side-lines for failure in anything Obama does or wants for America. Better roads and bridges............Cut taxes. Better health care.........defund it. Better education for our children...........do away with the Dept. of Education. How can they miss with all that going for them.”

“Over fifty years ago, my grandparents needed help with their finances. We helped. But that was enough to get me to save and not depend on Social Security for retirement. It does come in handy but we don't have to depend on it. Grampa had a small pension from the printers union but it wasn't enough. Unless the fact is TWEETED around the whole country, every hour, for years, very few will have enough.”

“We have already nearly eliminated defined benefit pension plans (for "little" people) and replaced them with IRA's and 401k's that are far from adequate and subject to Wall Street fraud.

Folks do not have opportunity or ability to change their retirement except through elections.”

“You are so right. Can you imagine what could have been had they worked together like Americans instead of the way it is. There was a time that America could come together and solve almost anything. Especially something this important. Good thing it didn't happen 150 years ago. The obstruction the rebubs would have thrown in the way would have us all living east of the Mississippi.”
