    What I find odd about this conversation is people attacking other people for trying to better themselves while the banks and politicians rape this country of its wealth.its crazy we are over 200billion in debt and nobody is complaining about that strange country we live in.

    They’re not trying to better themselves. They’re trying to get paid a lot more for an unskilled job than lots of highly skilled and qualified people who have ‘bettered themselves’. They’ve made a very dangerous bet that the company won’t lay them off and now they can see I what happens. Let’s face it, wouldn’t take a lot to train people to replace them. If you take this sort of risk you should really make sure that your job is more difficult than an average video game

    They are not trying to ‘better’ themselves. They are being exceptionally greedy wanting a higher wage than others who have ‘bettered’ themselves by a higher education.

    Let them all go and hire someone who wants to push the stick forwards and backwards.
