    "I offered several people with decades of experience minimum wage to do a highly-skilled job and they dared say no"

    Why would a person with decades of experience take a job for minimum wage that needed a skilled worker?  Why wouldn't the job play a living wage or is the employer taking advantage of high unemployment numbers to cheat workers.

    We all don't start at zero

    •  That's the plan.....make people so (4+ / 0-)

      desperate for jobs they will take ANY pay.....and keep pressing those wages downward.  It's been going on for decades.  All masked by easy credit and the pot o' gold at the end of the retirement rainbow known as the 401(k) that can be looted at any time (as we learned in 2008).

      Americans are dumb and the last 35 years have proven it beyond a shadow of a doubt.
