Obama has given printed money to bankrupt companies whose employees must be having salaries of $100,000/month or more.

These people must have rich savings and investments. Why do they need more money. They can retire.

One client "dropped a stunning $170,000 for its steamy services," the New York Post reported. Wall Street Prostitution Ring.

17 people have been indicted "on charges of running a high-end prostitution ring that catered to Wall Street clients who often spent more than $10,000 in a night," according to Reuters, via Zerohedge. The illegal ring, which is called High Class NY, earned its overseers more than $7 million over a three year period.

High Class operated 24 hours a day from Brooklyn, and catered strictly to "high-end customers coming from the financial markets," many of whom were hedge funders. Services cost clients anywhere between $400 to $3,600 an hour, Reuters reported, and clients were reportedly even provided with cocaine.

Back in the early 90's I was working in California, the company I worked for closed suddenly, did not pay us the money they owed us for two weeks or vacation pay we had accrued. A bunch of us applied for unemployment. It was about 450 a week. Not near what I was makeing, but, not bad for doing nothing but looking for a job.

The MAX in CA is $450 per week.

ok. in many major cities in California, that is descent pay, but it's certainly not rich. these people obviously have no idea how much an apartment can cost in San Diego or Los Angeles, let a lone the Bay area.

My studio in Ventura County is $825 per month. Clean, safe, comfy, small, and no frills. For $825 in my native state of Ohio I could get all of Cleveland and half of Akron.

It isn't always that easy to find a job the day after getting let go from another job.

and seriously, $800 for a bedroom with a kitchen doesn't seem pricey to you?
