Making minimum wage sucks but there is a reason some jobs make less then others. When it went up to $15 an hr I sure didn’t get a huge bump in pay like people making minimum wage did.

It’s all about life choices. I do feel for people but I was living in my car at one point in my life and now I make pretty good money. I could have stayed in that old life style and I would have went to prison but I made a choice to do better for myself.

I have lived off one can of tuna a day and 5 crackers to go with it. Life can get hard. And then there are the privileged.

Yes but the rules should help the hourly wage earner as much as the over indulging over compensated golden parachute lobbying...

This will never change. People in power will always do what’s best for them and the other people in power. Sucks but it’s just how it will always be.

Just like family and friends help each other get jobs when one has a good paying job.

It was funny. My boys and i watched the video and then it got erased from youtube. Then we found another but it got erased as well. I guess the powers that make sure that the free world stays small wont allow is to listen to a guy complain that his wages are low.

Watching that guy do a loop-di-loop in a 70 person aircraft was pretty damn impressive though.

Im not sure it any such thing has ever happened. I feel for the guy that did what he did. But I fear that he caused more pain for those that loved him than for those that watched that illegal video.

Suicidal people will never feel the pain that the people fill that they left or the impact it will have on their life’s.

Wasn't so much the minimum wage. There was a comment he made that if he landed the plain, would Air Alaska hire him as a pilot. Then he said they wouldn't because he was white Apparently making a reference to Obama era hiring policy for minority preference even if they were unqualified.

The reality of it is that airline pilots have to meet some minimum requirements if they expect to get hired. It's all about experience; recency of experience; type of aircraft experience; conditions of flight experience (good weather, bad weather, day, night); number of hours in their logbook; safety record and on and on.

I seriously doubt color of skin has anything to do with it.

The difference between patriotism and nationalism is that the patriot is proud of his country for what it does, and the nationalist is proud of his country no matter what it does.

Can you please explain why you feel life is so unfair for you, or anyone else that is "white"?
Thx

Life is a struggle for all of us! I hope it doesn't matter what color you are-especially if you are white. But seriously, people of "color" have more than their fair share, in my opinion.
As for me, I enjoyed being outside so much playing sports and competing that I now deal with having carcinomas burned off my body. Before that, I was the best looking guy on here. Haha

I don't feel anything. I'm merely repeating what he said and what he was referring to. THAT'S IT.
