This touches on a common problem with low wage workers.
Who is responsible for your workers? The employer or the state?

Right now, with a $7.25 minimum wage, employers profit from a low wage and allow the state to pick up the tab for housing, food and healthcare of these workers.

Should someone who gives 40 hours a week labor have to rely on the state for survival?
the worker is responsible for themselves,,

Easy to say but hard to apply when low end jobs pay so poorly

Used to be employers took care of their workers.
You seem to forget, the current generation is whining lazy bitches.

Employers need those workers, but do not want to pay them.
theres always someone to take their place,,,
Not today

Seems every restaurant and retail store I pass is advertising Help Wanted.

They want the workers but don’t want to pay for them.
because the government pays them to not work,, essentially making them wards of the state not a human being,,

To some extent but the playing field has changed.
When business shut down due to COVID, many workers found other jobs where they are better paid and better treated.
They are not anxious to return to retail and food service jobs.

Traditionally, when large numbers of jobs sit unfilled, market forces would raise wages and employers would treat employees better.

But after decades of supply side policies, Employers would rather have a job sit unfilled than pay competitive wages

So Amazon is paying this woman $19.30 per hour to work in their warehouse, but she still cannot afford to live independently in the high COL area where she squats. Parenthetically, it is against the local laws for her to "reside" in her vehicle, as she does, making her a vagrant, technically speaking.

So what do YOU conclude?
  1. Jeff Bezos doesn't pay enough in Federal Income Tax, or
  2. The woman needs to move, or
  3. The woman needs to find a roomie, or
  4. Amazon needs to pay each employee, regardless of what they do or the economic value thereof, enough for them to live a middle-class life in the region where they reside.
The correct answers, according to the article, are (1) and (4), notwithstanding the fact that no employer in the civilized world makes such a commitment to their employees, much less a PRIVATE SECTOR employer, because such a commitment would render the said employer an out-of-business, bankrupt former employer within months after that commitment were made.

Seriously, on what planet does this "news" source exist? Certainly not on THIS planet. How do they write this shit without being "cancelled" by their readers? Or are their readers so oblivious that they share the writer's sophomoric perspective.

Inquiring minds want to know.
Amazon has the industries highest turnover rate because that is what Amazon wants. She won't be working there long.

Yes they are uncommon, probably less than 0.5% earn a perfect score on the SAT.

$19.30 per hour is indeed LOW pay. There is no argument on this.
