We all know many that have worked for MW for a lot of years, did what they had to do and their corporate bosses refuses to increase their pay because of the corporate profit structure wont allow it. The corporations thrive on low income earners because they know if one quits/fired/lay-off, there will be another come along tomorrow. Corporations thrive on single mom's & older women. They love to exploit them because they are the demograpic less likely to say anything back to the employer because of fear of losing the only income they have.
Yes, kids makes it hard to relocate. You need sitters for kids. Not everyone has a grandma sitting their grankids while mom-dad are at work. Sitting kids cost an average of $160-$270 per week! No one babysits for $25 a week anymore. After childcare, you cant afford to work on MW, so many dont because they cant even afford food if they have to pay for childcare.
I know a lot of people that have to take MW jobs or work under the table to survive. They can swing a hammer, turn a wrench, fix just about anything, dig just about any ditch, mow, weld, problem solve and amaze everyone with what skills they have, but everyone wants everyone else's cheap labor! They want eveyone else, except themselves to work for NOTHING!
