what do you think it is like to work in a dead end factory job every year.  like numerous people said,  just give it


You mean that dead end job that has company paid Health Insurance? You mean that dead end job that has a 401k that the company matches 50% of what you put in?


I beg your pardon! "company paid health insurance"?? it is nothing as good as it use to be. The coverage sucks! and the premiums are high. 401k??? 10 years from now noone will be asking how big their 401k is IMO. 5-6 weeks of vacation??? and 8-10 weeks worth of forced overtime. I've did it for going on 21 years and I can tell you it ain't no bed of roses!

The same thing can be said of these "corn/bean" guys. They pretty much have 8-9 months of vacation every year all of the time. Ticks me off to hear how well off factory workers are, I can tell you probably 75% of who I work with live paycheck to paycheck. Takes alot of hours and overtime hours to get anywhere!! AND, there is no government subsidy to go to work to produce more of something that is not needed. 40-50% of the food gets thrown away and wasted in this country.
