The bottom of my classes in grade school, high school * college had the same atmosphere I had.
They had the same rooms, chairs, desks, teachers, books, and assignments.
They had the same heat, light, weather, and sports available that I did.
I did my hoework. I turned in papers on time. I took the tests given to the whole classroom. I gave up a social life to take college classes at night for over 4 years. That extra education gave me the ability to be self-employed since about 1979. I still have clients, and I am well past Soc Sec age.
IF those who got the lowest grades had put some effort into school work instead of drinking & hanging out at the local dance halls, they might have done better also.
There already is ‘Affirmative Action Hiring” which gives extra points to a job applicant just because of their color or whatever. They don’t EARN those points, and often, they also do NOT deserve them.
Telling a person who puts in over 60 hours a week keeping clients happy that they don’t deserve that hourly pay they are getting is a total insult. I actually was given the incentive to get more college courses well into my 30’s when I saw the worst worker in my section get all the raises I got & all the benefits. They missed work for a variety of reasons and certainly didn’t work very hard. I got disgusted & went to work for myself. I absolutely DID drop clients who I didn’t like or were nervous about their business habits. I wasn’t going to sign reports to the state or Federal government for them.
I own everything I have. All my property, vehicles, animals, furniture, ——everything. No mortgage—no car payment.
“The Democrats suck at governing, but they are masters of messaging and getting people to vote.”
They are masters of buying votes. If life on the dole sucks, then some of those voters will abandon the Dems; if it is still preferable to earning a living, they’ll stay in the Dems’ corner...
