You've been whimpering for pages about the difficulty in paying for getting skills that allow you to rise above minimum wage.  I explained how I did it, and without the government freebies you libs are so fond of - so most people can do it too.  Blink twice if you get it yet.   Smiley

You don't have a skill

There you go.  It is always your fault if you don't get a break.  Sometimes people find themselves in situations where it is almost impossible to get ahead.  Like if you are stuck in a MW job, have a couple of kids that you are raising alone and just don't have any money to spare to get a skill.  Sure it is easy if you just graduated and still live with your parents or you have a spouse who is supporting you furthering your education.  But if you have no support and no money or no time to go to school because you are raising kids as a single parent, it is hard.  Everyone is not smart enough to get a scholarship, Pell Grants are not available to everyone. 


That single parent working at Burger King will eventually accrue enough skill in that industry to land an assistant manager position if they chose to pursue that.  Those types of positions are constantly opening up.  Once at that position the employee is learning important management and leadership skills that are valuable across all industries.  This person should then really start looking elsewhere for employment as he could easily land something else earning more income.

That is a more realistic possibility.

They are never late for work
They never spit in the food
They are consistent
They are cheaper than humans in the long run
They never go on strike.
They never have attitudes
