>> and some will work at minimum wages all their life and never have the luxury of money to invest in any way <<Nice to see a long-dead thread resurrected like Lazarus. This is going to sound a little heartless and I don't mean it to, but to some degree, working for minimum wage all your life is probably a *choice*.Why do I say that? There are, over the course of a lifetime, plenty of low cost training and educational opportunities available for many people. Many people who are sufficiently motivated to get out of that cycle can attend a community college, often at very low cost (and possibly even for nothing depending on what programs are available to assist in paying for it), taking a class here and there until they have a degree or certificate making them much more employable in other fields that pay better.I know that working 40+ hours and having family responsibilities often leaves little time for retraining on your own time, but if someone is sufficiently motivated to avoid a lifetime of minimum wage jobs, don't let it be said that they are completely "trapped" and that their future is completely out of their control.I sympathize with people in this situation, but I don't sympathize with those in this situation who would demand that the world adapt to them rather than the other way around. The world doesn't owe any of us a living.#29
