Ronnie Reagan start the down fall of the MIDDLE CLASS with the breaking of the AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLER Ronnie Reagan came president as I was leaving high school and that would have been my FIRST ELECTION to vote for a president.
I don't see why we have only two party system. I look at election who is worst of the two evil.
Years out in work force. Statement time...I find most employers are “ASSES” I could tell you tells about people I work for. Not very many of them I find have ethics
If I had a crystal ball and known what work life would have been like...Here is what I would of done. Got some type of training went to work for less then 10 years and got my self hurt. Claim disability. Actual drawing SSD isn't all that bad. If your getting top notch pay. Heck I know one can get $2,800 plus most of the medical (medicare) paid for, 80% of it. Those on SSD can work season/part time.
Better then I'm doing. If I work a 40 hour week doing home care I would make about $1920 a month. There no medical insurance with that.
I've never belong to a UNION and now I can see what they can do. Usual the medicaid nurse who does valuate a client needs are usual fair.
But there are times which should be rare. That one goes over time. Most of the time it happens at a medical appointment.
Three things I would ask union for doing home care other then a livable wage.
- Is to be paid for over time do to a medical appointment
- To get performance and or profit bonus quarterly
- Travel cost....There are people who needs less the 8 hours a week help. That lives so far out in dingle weeds.....
That it doesn't even cover your fuel to go out.
Idaho is getting big on 1099 forms. Which is used for contract or free lance workers. But they are employees who claims ones as contract worker but never ask the employee what there willing to do the job for. Lot of them are less then $10.00 an hour. So in short of it. One pays both end of social security
. Think about it. At a federal minimum wage of $7.25 you would pay in $1.10 (15.3%) and that would be $6.15 and hour.
Opinion time....Contract worker should be paid $15 or more.
Paying people with a 1099 form is pretty low on the totem pole.
The days of my grandparents and parents union are gone. Since everything we do is globe. I feel unions can still play part in work force. Unions can take part in collective bargain in profit sharing, performance bonus, those who are on call, and other benefits.
If someone goes to work they should be hold there head high and be paid enough that they don't need to use a quest card (food stamp- snap program) and live a middle class life style.
Question time...What is a livable wage in your area?
