Am I a Prophet or What?

Technorati Profile

I wrote this as a letter to the editor in The Union newspaper back on July 7th, 2006. Somewhere out there poor people are kicking themselves for not accepting low wages as security guards and saving the global economy.

I read another crybaby story about not being able to find help for cheap in "Security Guards in Demand."

When it comes to CEOs and the like, it is a given that we must pay more to get quality. This same logic is never applied to teachers, police officers, farm workers, and well, yes, security guards.

It's almost as if the rich feel the poor are obligated to work for the lowest possible wages, or else the economy will fail, and everyone will suffer. Why is it that the "invisible hand of the market" works just fine for hiring Rush Limbaugh, but is considered "inappropriate" for hiring the common man? Ganders and Gooses, what's happening here?
