    The cost of living continues to go up but wages don't.

    Then find or create a job that gives you the wage you think you deserve.

    Lets remember the government itself is responsible for much of the inflation.

    It's a buyer's market.

    The point of the OP went right above you head, if employers cannot find people to fill their opening they need to do something better to fill those openings, not pretend they're doing people a favor by offering them a low paying job.

    And employers are responsible for not adequately filling their positions.

    If you're suggesting that the 9.1 percent unemployment rate is because businesses will not raise their wages, then you are full of shit!

    The reason we have high unemployemnt because they are no jobs, and the jobs that are out there, companies are not finding the level of talent their businesses require.

    Employers Ready to Hire Can

    Who are you to determine whether or not an employer is adequately equipped with manpower.

    I've seen conservatives argue that way quite often. Present an observation about how things are done, or what is happening in the economy and maybe an idea of what to do about it, and in response they invert the whole thing and treat it as a problem that YOU, PERSONALLY are having.

    Like this. Did you say that YOU couldn't find a job that pays well? Did you say that YOU were underpaid in your job? No, not at all. Clearly, you weren't talking about YOURSELF at all.

    But it's as if, for these people, it really is all about them, and so they assume that whenever you say anything it must be all about you, too. That's revealing about their own selfishness and self-centeredness more than anything else.
