    What they are trying to do is extract as much money as possible FROM the working class.
    (I assume a typo, as your comment generally reflects the idea that not much is being done for the working class...)


    I kinda screwed up with a careless uprate so (for now?) I'm a No Rate leper. So when I give a comment "+110% n/t", please consider that a recommend. (That's my workaround fix to participating in this community!)

      That steel mill was running well paying workers 11-12k a year, the IMF law was instituted, and the next thing you know he demands a 40% wage cut.

      The minimum wage drops out, public workers salaries are cut, people then go on the black market as jobs become scarce, but the price of steel worldwide stays the same.

      Someone's margins just increased exponentially!

      There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind who divide the world into two kinds of people, and the kind who don't.
