Correct. Working in a kitchen could range from low to very good pay depending on where you're at and what position.

Everyone in America should be living below their means. We're not entitled to blow the rest of the world's savings.

I see a lot of Hispanics doing menial labor, and they all seem to have bigger families than the avg white American. Looks like the problem isn't jobs but a sense of entitlement.

I can't resist the temptation any longer.

There really are no jobs in Vegas. Everyone works on pure volunteer basis.

There are jobs in Vegas but they are jobs that most people dont want to or cant do. Therefore most people look at it as "there are no jobs".

So you are saying that their are jobs?

If so, that is pretty much what I am saying also. Your "techie type" jobs would fall in the category of jobs people cant do because of lack of experience.

Not only does it support a family, we paid cash for our house and our benefits are first rate.


Who made you final arbiter of what constitutes a "real job?" I used to have the kind of job you're probably thinking of. I quit that so I could do something worthwhile with my time.

You lost me. Granted you paid cash for your house. But how does that relate to doing a job as a kitchen worker?? Sorry...a min wage job does not support a family or provide enough to pay rent or pay a note!!! There are jobs in Vegas. Unfortunately, the majority of them are low paying jobs, As to regards to your claim about benefits; I have been all over the world. I can tell you that benefits here in Las Vegas are terrible. But I understand, THIS IS VEGAS.
