18. I think what bothers me is the stereotypes
Yes, there are lazy poor people but they do NOT make up the majority for all poor people. The problem is is that you're living in an economy that is dying and when cheap labor is being pursued. The rich want to save a buck so they employ those who cost less. The person who takes that job on average, is a family person trying to make ends meet and put a roof over his/her family's head and food on the table. Why hasn't corporate welfare been an issue?

I just see so much nitpicking from people, even on here, with regard to poor folk. it's greed, bottom line.
