5 bucks an hour to clean the toilets at MacD's? No thanks

Terminate at will, tips taken out of wages, screwed over at every corner, no thanks - screw that!

Crime is by far, a way more lucrative and honourable lifestyle.

Let's see, shall we, how it works in the real legalised theft world.

1. Insurance = Deception

2. Alcohol and tobacco industry = drug dealing

3. Banking, stockbroking = Theft

4. Medical treatment, wage work = Exploitation

need the list continue?

I'm sure this guy would call your synopsis retarded.

you really are a piece of work. you complain that chewing tobacco is illegal in a couple of countries, and then turn around a claim that selling tobacco is equal to drug dealing. confused much? what do you want, everything for free? right now money makes the world go around, and if you want certain services you have to PAY for them.

Drug dealing should be legalised.

Take away all the restrictions then the 5 bucks an hour, working for the man type jobs, will be only 1 of many, many options.

You are trying to compare an entry level employee with the top 1% criminal. A minimum wage job is an entry level position, which would be akin to the entry level crime of shoplifting socks at WalMart or mugging school kids to steal their lunch money.

Every street level drug dealer that I have ever met makes the same argument. Why put up with some minimum wage job rather than being their own boss. The funny thing is that each one worked longer hours, without any benefits. But each still preferred the risk of street corner capitalism to wage slavery. Death or incarcerations was just one of the risks of doing business.

I guess it is the feeling of freedom that comes from being ones own boss, of sorts,plus not have to take so much gip off people

but still, is it any wonder why so many people today choose to do this over working at BK?
