    It is true if you have the right education and resume you can make money in America. It is however true you can also lose a lot of money in America, all you have to do is get sick or injured in which case it is all over but the crying.

     

    sig...You just ran into a hardcore progressive who's just another working stiff with an MBA degree & therefore a vociferous labor union supporter [smile]

      kind of a lottery. If you can manage to land a decent job, keep said job, don't get sick or injured and are a disciplined saver and a lucky investor you will save up good money in the long term. Still won't live like Europeans (e.g. rich street life) and won't get to travel much, but you'll have a nice net worth. I guess that's what attracts Americans, though most will never get to experience it because they fail at one or multiple points.

      We don't inherit the world from the past. We borrow it from the future.
