    The argument for the Romney Supporters is that it's perfectly okay that Romney destroyed thousands of good paying union jobs with benefits because, hey, Staples was one of his investments. And Staples employs 90,000 people today.


    Right.


    Okay.

    What does Staples Pay?

    PayScale - Staples, Inc. Employer Wages, Hourly Wage Rate

    Computer Repair Technician - $7.66-12.85

    Retail Sales Associate - $7.39- $11.15

    Copy Center Specialist - $7.50- $12.82

    Sales Asscoiate - $7.37 - $9.89

    Seriously? This is the argument he's going to make. It's okay I eliminated good paying jobs at GS Steel or AmPad because I created these wonderful oppurtunities at Staples with crappy wages and no benefits.

    Please point out where what I've said is inaccurate.

    Thank you...

    Your whole post is inaccurate. But you're too fucking moronic to know that.

    Wow... so you really can't refute the point, can you?

    You do understand that when you take away good paying jobs and replace them with crappy retail/service jobs, you don't have a middle class anymore, right?

    I mean, this concept occurs to you.

    Or are you spending nights fretting that Romney's fourth mansion isn't big enough when all his inbred relatives come to visit?

    I could... but you're not at an intellectual level to understand it. That's your problem, I won't make it mine.

    That is a good point.

    My first job out of the Army was working for a company that distributed Pet supplies to the "Mom and Pop" pet stores that were still pretty common in the 1980's.

    Well, along came the PetCo's and the PetSmarts, which could buy in bulk, and those places went out of business, and eventually we did. We were actually one of the last survivors amongst the distributors, six or seven smaller ones sank before we did.

    The GOP often tauts itself as the friend to small business, but really, small business suffers as much as labor from their policies.
