There are many statistics that show how much of a failure capitalism is for the lower class. The most obvious one to me is a thought experiment. How is it possible that one adult working full time cannot afford food, water, shelter, and healthcare in this current age of wealth abundance? Why should an adult be penalized for taking a less favorable job, when such job is required for society to function? People working these jobs shouldn't have to rely on welfare to survive. That makes absolutely no sense. They found work and most of them do it well. What else is expected of them? Is it realistic a fast food worker on welfare to "go to college and get a better job" when their bank account is in the double-digits before payday and their body is broken from the labor? Why does the employer continue to punish and shame them instead of empowering them and giving them a means to earn their way out of poverty with a living wage? There is absolutely no empathy from employers. All these people, who break their backs for wages such as $8.50 per hour, want is a means to survive. They upheld their end of the bargain by working the designated hours at an adequate performance level. Why can't they just be allowed to live?
