If you ever thought about being a trucker, I make about $48 every hour and a half, or every hundred miles.

It's not hard to get. Mainly learning all the laws with trucking, and operating one.

@504,892 (C)

Trucking is probably one of the number one reasons for divorce. It takes a strong willed spouse to handle you being gone all the time.

When I was married, I loved leaving the house just to get away from the ex wife. Her constant bitching about everything made me glad to leave. It got so bad, that instead of going home on weekends, I started getting hotel rooms. Finally, one day I had enough, and never went back home and quit calling her. She filed for divorce about 4 months later. I was so fucking happy when she did!

$15 an hour is the minimum I think you need. Anything below that is poverty tier.

Research shows with inflation 15 is bare minimum for living and it's not even going to stay that way for long.

·Anonymous M9 months ago, 10 minutes later, 6 days after the original post[T] [B] #506,139

@previous (Namefag !CQywTu1T9w)
i'm simply speaking of experience, i don't know what the official stats are. $15 is what you need to make where I live. otherwise the numbers just aren't there to back you up.

education can only help so many, someone is going to lose.

Not everyone can afford education, there's nothing wrong with education.

Education is a net positive, look at socialist european countries with high intelligence, they all have high life expectancy and income rate as well as low crime and homelessness

That's what my union was lobbying for. It took forever just to get to this - my uni is a terrible bureaucracy and terribly cheap. I think theyre going to keep fighting for $15 but as it stands I'd rather just sign for $13.75 and continue lobbying than keep fighting and stay at $11

> Not everyone can afford education, there's nothing wrong with education.
I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it. What I meant was that realistically there are not enough jobs to go around for everyone to be that doctor/engineer/etc. There isn't even a consensus to what constitutes a STEM job. It ranges from 7-20 million in the US. The byproducts that you see in education such as better health, better income, more savings etc are all red herrings because it focuses on the "successes" and forgets about the bottom classes who if were all educated you would see there is a limit to the "good jobs".

I say it's a red herring because the real issues stem from the fact that we have corporations and people at the top that have a lot of wealth that they are using to their own benefit at the cost of humanity which is basically encouraged since that's how the system is set up and you have a lot of people at the bottom struggling to survive that continue procreating endlessly. Those are the real issues, never mind the oncoming automation that's going to kill us all metaphorically speaking.

As for Europe I'd argue that their situation is a result of their overall culture of which education is only a part of. I don't know what their future holds but had the refugee fiasco not happened they would've been well on their way to the socialist utopias every liberal dreams of as they had their systems set up, their populations in check, and had suffered through massive wars that tempered their populations.

I think the problem is that we're still seeing work, and life for that matter, from the view of the bottom up. The real change must happen from the top down starting with corporations that abuse(although not really since the system is set up that way) their workers to squeeze every last drop out of them. Just look at the hours the average worker has in the US. It's 60+, ironically the 40 hour workweek that were fought for back in during the industrial revolution have been lost as communications technology has progressed. Overtime isn't a luxury, it's a necessity for many.

It's really culture that is grinding us down slowly. Not the lack of education.

although actually i was making $11/hr full time this summer and that was enough to live off of, esp. if i didn't have tuition (which i personally don't pay anyway). it comes to about 2000/mo, and my living expenses are ~1600, more like $1300 if i wasn't paying off some debt i stupidly got myself into, more like $1000 if i lived in a cheaper place with roommates!

Actually there's millions of jobs just sitting open in machining and engineering it's not even funny, so many baby boomers are retiring simultaneously while the millenials are either too lazy or in too much debt to afford the 12 week certification programs.

And I agree about automation killing jobs, but the robots should be doing that shit anyway while we all knit sweaters with our UBI.

After the trillions wasted bombing sand into glass in the middle east I don't give a fuck if a good chunk of our federal tax spending goes to lazy welfare babies as long as I can eat and make music.

Show me where they are. Show me the ads. Show me where they're so desperate that they're willing to train you. And no, you having a degree isn't training. This is the bullshit you see, they call it "hitting the ground running" which is unrealistic. They're not desperate in the slightest they just want to get the most employee for their dollar or there's nepotism going on behind the scenes. Nothing wrong with that, but don't sugarcoat the reality.

> 12 week certification programs.
What type and what industry? Typically it's either an industry certification that takes a test, a few days to a week or two of training that requires industry experience if it's even worth anything. There is also the trade school route that takes a year, an AAS from a community college that takes 2 or a BS that is minimum of 4. All of which you're taking the cost of training and risk that it will pay off. I'm not saying it won't open doors but people don't have the luxury to spend time or money on this sort of stuff when they need to work just to survive.
