are looked down upon in this state - why is it?

They are people too - so why can't they be treated like HUMAN BEINGS instead of being treated like scum?

It's disgusting on what's happening with society around here!

Often, people with low self esteem feel as if people are judging them. Often times they're not.

Nobody really cares about someone else's salary.

Default Making less than 40,000

It sounds as though you may be speaking of persons of low income. Well here in the northeast it seems that you are at poverty if making 40,000 or less. I don't even make 25,000. But i don't fret, that much, and no one treats me bad except banks when i ask for money to fix my car or pay for something that is really big. So I don't do that anymore. but atg open up to your source of income. Know that you can do what you want if you want it bad enough. Engage in learning a skill that brings you joy, we all work for something, and if money isn't it than try to bring joy into your heart.

what a nice positive post!. And no personal attacks. Bravo for you!. To the OP yes- some people can act rude- if you are in customer service- My neighbor in Garden City- once went to mgmnt about a Lancome employee who was rude to his wife- she basically hated her job, so projected that negativity onto others- it happens alot and sometimes the one with low self esteem treats YOU bad, even if you are the one earning low wages.
