2. I'm sure your bootstraps will never break.
If only we still had factories so you could put your children to work at the age of seven.

5. A "little work" is great.
Mandatory (often physical labor) for people who have already worked and "paid into the system" for 50-70 years is slavery. People deserve to enjoy at least a few years of their lives.
Also, the next generation deserves to be able to find jobs.
Of course, mandatory pay controls for the wealthiest (usually CEO's, who ship off our work to get multi-million $$ annual bonuses) should also be legislated.
Corporations are not people and People before Profits, should be a fundamental LAW.

In other countries the same add would say "we will not effin' work till we die." In the USA? We ask pretty please...

4. Karoshi in the USA?

They are trying to stop that in Japan, I would imagine that it wouldn't bother corporations here.
