The S*** in between

Now life has a funny way of playing out im seventeen on my way to soon be that special age of 18, were kids grow up turn into adults leave high school and do something with there lives. Does everyone though of course there are the few that drop out and again there are the few who stay longer in school, and once again there are the few that must leave there home when they turn 18 and are thrust into adulthood without much warning. Do three fews make a many, How about all the people that go and take some course and end up hating it changing majors and fall out of the system finaly falling upon a job that pays more then minimum wage.

In fact it turns out that the people who manage to stay at home graduate take a post secondary course and stick with it to earn a degree are becoming the minority. My thoughts instantly flew to the government then the school system then minimum wage, taxes so on until it really hit me. corporation are a devil in disguise from god if that makes any sense, they feed off of people who cant earn $30+/hour they pay employees whatever the government says they can basically survive on but in truth thats not true it once was and the world was not as bad but now there are too many super powerful corporations in the world.

the first starts at the top, Oil the liquid gold of our entire species, if one day there was just not a drop left without warning we would decend into an anarchy then further into chaos and soon huge wars and so on.
Next is the number two Wal-Mart, basically a sixty two year old Mexican woman in blue, but behind that face is the pure essence of Evil. They have found the perfect way to destroy decades of work in a the time it takes to find a parking spot at a super- centre. Can you believe that after the 1860s and early 1900s when bosses just told kids to work and the elderly to stop complaining and to continue working, governments and the people changed it so we could be treated fair unions would protect the workers and the original concept was that noone would be without a union. Now its 2011 and we have 15 year olds getting jobs to pay for sports or to help the family even seniors who retired have been forced back into work by the assembly line of corporations. Wal-mart literally started as a place were you could go and get whatever you needed instead of going to ten different stores, they used to call it a mall but oil is to expensive and prices at wal-mart are cheap so people see the benefit. Though at what cost really is it having, so what your toaster is made in china, they get paid 14cents a day, the toaster costs 1.14 with labor to make plus 20 cents to ship in huge masses so giving it away on sale for 49.99 should even things out especially when frank down the street has an american built toaster that cost 15 bucks to make and 6 bucks labor to make, so how can frank compete when he sells his for 79.99.

What about communication, the phone used to be pay some little fee that pays wages of the operator and gives some money to the service manager to feed his kids. now your sucked in to getting a new phone every two years, well after 2012 the C.R.T.C and other Canadian and american service providers want people to upgrade every one year seven months, which is insane because the phones they sell you are 29.99 on a three year term and 499.99 on a two year and 550.00 on a one year plan, How can the average joe who make 40 grand a year pay for oil, morgage taxes food and all the latest gadgets without going into debt.

One word explanes that. Credit. Joe can make 40 grand but when you spend 42 a year that extra two goes onto his plastic which is then charged 30% interest. and now joe says oh no im broke and still losing money plus if I only make minimum payments on the bill I will have it till 2055.

So Joe gets in his car and drives to his local money mart and takes a payday loan three times a month. Now he has an extreme problem because he can now pay the extra money on his credit but not with interest in a year goes from making 40 grand to 30 grand just because the substantial fees charged at payday loan shops.

now Joe works at Wal-mart with his wife and kid making 10.25 each but one day minimum wage will go up and he awaits that day.



That was part one of four of The S*** In Between
