While liberals cry and whine about being poor and oppressed by 1%

"An aspiring machinist -- a popular factory job -- can start training at 18 and then do a one- or two-year manufacturing apprenticeship. In five years, he or she could be making more than $50,000. In 10 years, that could double to $100,000. Not a bad salary for a 28-year-old. "If you're really good at your work, you could remain employed for a very long time, because there are so few of us," said Sedlak. Sedlak's top worker makes $30 an hour. And annual pay at his company ranges between $70,000 and $80,000 with overtime. Still, with almost 13 million unemployed Americans, including many high school graduates, he is struggling to fill positions. A recent Manufacturing Institute and Deloitte report underscores that. Manufacturers currently have 600,000 vacancies nationwide, it said."

So it's the government that we need to worry about. We should become socialists and hand them omnipotent power hoping they "do the right thing"...

Side: Yup

"Can" and "Could" are such reassuring terms don't you think?...

No, I don't think so. Sure one in a million will be this fortunate but don't for a minute think the life of a factory worker (or wage bracket they remain in throughout their career even as floor manager) is close to pleasant.

Side: Yup

I'm a retired "factory worker" one of millions across this nation who had careers in manufacturing and are now enjoying a standard of living that is the American dream. Your assessment of our lives and well being demonstrates a complete ignorance of fact.
