We Are The 53%

The 53% that pay the taxes that support the 100% CLICK HERE

"I am 34 years old.  I didn’t finish college because I had to work to support myself and my family.  I have been working since I was 16.  I work 80+ hours per week to keep my small business afloat.  For the past 2 years I have been trying to find qualified candidates to work for the going rate in my city - $28-$42k.  Every recent graduate that we interview has no experience, and wants too much money.  I blame politicians, not Wall Street for creating pointless bailouts and a system of welfare and unemployment that rewards individuals that typically aren’t willing to work.  I blame a higher education system that is failing it’s students by giving them a sense of entitlement instead of a strong work ethic. I word hard every day to provide handouts to the 99%.  I employ 8 people and have been trying to hire for 3 open positions for the past year."

The elitest, entitlemement oriented millenial generation is in serious trouble and so is our country. The "you owe me something" attitude is not going away it appears, even in the downtrodden economy. Perhaps we really do need another great depression to sort this mess out.

"We Are the 53 Percent" -- the portion of Americans who still pay their income taxes, work hard but can't get ahead. We don't have our hands out, we have them busy working or looking for work."
