Things are not at all rosy here in the land of the fee.
Well, wasn't that a nice bit of Socialistic sunshine.

You do realize: Lower unemployment means people will be paid more in a employer-competitive market.

No one forces most people to accumulate debt. That is a personal choice, for which only the individual is responsible.

They only person responsible for how much someone makes, is the person themselves. I find it pathetic that people continue to wave the 'income inequality' banner as though some mysterious third party should be responsible for making sure everybody makes enough money to make them comfortable, regardless of skill or market value.

Life is not some guaranteed ride - the basis of this country provides people with the opportunity to work towards their goals, not an absolute, and only if they apply themselves to get there.

Stop worrying about what someone else makes, or what someone else has. Apply yourself to reach your goals, don't expect them to be handed to you. There are no guarantees in life: hope for the best, plan for the worst.
The government is not your friend.
