Saves money living in a car--sort of like the scene in Soylent Green where an abandoned car has a stovepipe coming out the window.. Moral of story. Learn to manage your income properly, and acquire the skills necessary for a higher paying job. Its YOUR responsibility NOT the GOVERNMENTS. If you dont like Slamazon--dont buy from them. I NEVER do--but the reason is to avoid the sales tax they charge which E-bay and non-Slamazon sellers dont.

You are guilty of cooyright infrigement, and liable. It's obvious that you know nothing about the real progressives staff as 3/4of us are disabled and fighting to make change for the better.

“The man who has millions will want everything he can lay his hands on and then raise his voice against the poor devil who wants ten cents more a day.” — Samuel Gompers, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hw1yRJ8qxrg "Alan Krueger, a Princeton economist, argued that monopsony power is most likely part of the apparent puzzle of why wage growth is low. By his estimates, wages should be rising 1 to 1.5 percentage points faster than they are, given recent inflation levels and the unemployment rate. When workers have few potential employers to choose from, he said, they may have less ability to demand higher pay, and it becomes easier for employers to collude to restrict pay, whether through explicit back-room deals or more subtle signaling." https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/25/upshot/big-corporations-influence-economy-central-bank.html?emc=edit_th_180826&nl=todaysheadlines&nlid=102108130826 I think it’s wrong that only one company makes the game Monopoly. — Steven Wright

So Senator Sanders, which one of your many homes will you be giving up so she can live in it? Oh you're not giving up one of your homes? But your out here uploading videos telling everyone how sad this is and how they should give up part of their income to help people like her. Exactly what have you given up Mr Sanders? I don't have multiple homes. I don't have multiple cars. I don't get to go on multiple vacations a year and I also work 365 days a year which is something neither you nor the lady in this video do. Why am I giving up anything? Shouldn't people in your situation be giving up things first if you're trying to tell everyone else how they should live and what they can and can't have. Why aren't you the shining example of what you preach? Oh I know why! Because you're just another politician who really doesn't care about anything but being elected and filling his own pockets up. You absolutely disgust me. I have serious doubt that you even give to charity.

David Levy I don't recall Bernie ever suggesting that we should "give up" anything. If you took just a little time to find out more about this man that, "disgusts" you and the issues he addresses, you would find that your assumptions are wrong. He is no typical politician and he isn't trying to take your stuff away to give it to stupid, lazy people. That's a misrepresentation.

Jeff Bezos created one of the most efficient, productive companies in the history of the planet. What do you do? Mindlessly move things around in a warehouse? He doesn't owe you anything. It's astonishing that you are so resentful of the person who pays you all the money you have. Maybe stop comparing yourself to and being resentful of people whose productivity is way out of your league and start focusing on self-improvement. It sounds like you're spending habits are out of control. You're being paid $13.25 an hour because that's what you are worth. Make yourself worth more and you'll be paid more.

Idiot's like Sanders just want to dictate rather than manage. Just look over history and see what price-fixing gets you. The government has 2 ways of managing wages. They can effect the supply of labor by decreasing immigration or they can effect the demand for labor by reducing taxes and regulations on the industries that want to employ that labor(because with lower taxes and regulation, those companies can grow and capture more market share(internationally) and thus will need more employees).

Mike P (4 месяца назад)
АVAИТ GAЯДЕ Not one time in this video did it say she was injured on the job. I did a little bit of research and yes it looks like she had a workplace injury but I didn't see the story on any major news source but it's probably because this is fairly recent. But answer me this, why didn't they care to mention the injury in the video? Or even what the Amazon spokesperson said about it? Hmmm maybe because they were attempting to generalize what people go through when they work for a company like Amazon. It's simply an attempt to demonize the rich. Is it terrible that she's in this situation? Of course!! But it looks like Bernie Sanders made a video about her and didn't bother donating any money to her GoFundMe. Hmmm looks a guy with 3 houses and a salary of over 250k a year talking shit about rich people and not helping this poor lady in need but instead making a video to push his agenda. He hasn't donated to her cause AT ALL. Here is her GoFundMe so you can help her out more than Bernie ever has: https://www.gofundme.com/injuredamazonemployee If you can't see that NO politician no matter what party it is actually gives a shit about you rather than just your vote then you are the IMBECILE.

Businesses charge what the market can bare. This mentality justifies raising prices for them. Prices are raised if they know a particular geo demographic can afford it based on average income. If people were given a raise, businesses and the government want a cut too, so they charge more. Something has to be done about that too, to protect a basic, decent livelyhood, otherwise the raise they get is actually a raise for the government and merchants.
eovalle777 (5 месяцев назад)
Taxes take a huge chunk of your paycheck specially if you are single. Nobody lowers your rent if you are single and grocery stores don't give you a discount either. Housing prices are also through the roof, which no employer has control over. If people are given a raise, there needs to be mechanisms that assure a decent standard of living, that you are going to be able to afford with what they pay you. What we have instead is a place where the rich can compete with the poor for housing among other things.

Also want to note that this eviction crisis is a new phenomenon. Evictions used to be or cause, and inability to pay rent wasn’t generally considered a valid cause, as even though you are obligated to pay rent, it used to be understood that you have a right to shelter. People used to work these things out before litigation was needed. Evictions used to be so rare that it drew crowds to see how awful a person must be to be kicked from their home, and now nobody cares and some even support them.
David Stinnett (5 месяцев назад)
russell d actually this is my last one lol You do realize that it is VERY BASIC to your own philosophy that society itself is the trading of “freedom” for the benefits of a civilized life. Yes. Saying you have a right means that you are imposing, or could, impose on someone. We call it a right because you are aloud to have access to some ability, good or service even if it is to the detriment of some people. (The legal concept comes from feudal rights, where you were granted the ability to create impose upon the hunting or fishing rights of a lord or king by hunting and fishing on their land. T he Founding Father’s didn’t like how capricious this was, being smugglers denied the right to trade their rum and other goods, and put the granting of rights under the purview of the Republic. They saw them as limited only by what people felt the needed at the time. Like I’m not a founder pounder but this was a good idea and it’s super sad to see their good work basterdized) Why not move to a cabin in the woods and subsist on hunting and gathering if freedom is your biggest concern. The entire point of saying you had those rights was to be able to protest that you were granted permission to trespass and impose in this way. If you are going to make the choice to live with society, then please stop asking everyone accommodate your selfishness and lend a hand okay? You know what they call someone who wants to benefit with putting in the work? A leech. And nobody likes a leech.

russell d lastly, it’s almost like you have an elaborate philosophical justification for being a bad person just because you are too lazy to put in the bare minimum effort to be a good person (And before you get triggered and yell, your kindness will always be measured by how you treat those who are of zero use to you, not how you treat people who will give you the benefit of reciprocation or some other payment)
David Stinnett (5 месяцев назад)
russell d it’s almost like your reliance on liberal theology of “rights as abstract qualities that are genetically encoded into the person or something” is more of an imposition on people than requiring someone’s labor to minimize the suffering of society in general It’s almost like if rights exist at all then they are an agreement amongst society about the minimum standard of life a person can expect at a given time given the current construct of society and what is technologically and financially possible. (Ie, in 1789, a right to a lawyer to argue about your other rights was a reasonable minimum standard, but in 2018 we are capable of providing a home with plumbing and electricity (and in most places, internet access) with a minimum imposition on the people doing the work (much like lawyers will be practicing law either way, contractors are going to build no matter who is paying for the house. It’s only a question of societal commitment)

russell d it’s almost like we live in a society and the payment for the benefit of the doctor not spiking you on the floor for not being a perfect human specimen who could be fully self sufficient without having to rely upon the work of any other person is that you have to be a decent person and not a monster who says people should die of exposure if they cannot afford shelter and to generally care for others, especially the less fortunate.
