My wife happened to look at the jobs site of our local TV News website - here is the link:

Look at these jobs and the requirements and then look at the horrible rates of pay.

This one really cracked me up - look what they require for a lousy $10.49 an hour - a single person could not live on that pay - let alone a family!

And the unthinking masses think we do not need labor unions today!  We need them now more than ever!
