So why don't we talk about the number of "working families" instead of the total number of individuals working?
exactly, that is the issue with wage stagnation (like you are talking about)- I still think it is crazy that I had to take a huge dip in pay after the dot com crash in 2000 and only this year have i been able to make what I did then. We just had our first kid this year (me at 43)- all because of finances and still need to both work in order to keep afloat. In the 50's you would never see this happen - that time table would be back at least 15 years, the average family would be able to on one family member's middle class wage afford to buy a house and raise their 2.5 kids without struggling against it.
While I'm all for protecting our rights, changing the system to everybody is protected, and making sure our votes count, let's not kid ourselves, we're still just whining about our first world problems of not having enough luxuries.
actually we are complaining that people with money are "whining about our first world problems of not having enough luxuries" and pushing laws and regulations to crack down on the populace for not giving them an unending supply.
last time I checked there were not custom IOS ROMs out there.
it would certainly be awesome if there were - though the whole monopoly on the hardware thing is what prevents it, most ROMs are compiled from other base ROMs and tweaked or rebuilt - as there is only one iOS and one line of hardware you don't really have the diversity of base developer ROMs to work from.
I have some customers that can get more viruses than a Bangkok whore on a Saturday night
I didn't know that Bankok whores run code, let alone after work hours.
