  4. not really, there is a transitional zone or line or whatever for these vaccinations, it will be a few months.

  5. 12.00 an hour that doesn’t even cover rent!

  6. Maybe if American companies payed a living wage or, even better, a GOOD wage, employees would be interested in coming back to work. You can't pay CRAP WAGES and expect employees to come back.

  7. Lol no more free loading. Time to take your butt back to work

  8. Get back to work you lazy hippies. Stop turning down work and taking advantage of the welfare.

  9. I was a stay_at_home mother and I have been searching for a good job but since I met Mrs Amisha kertika. I ain't bothered anymore because her expertise in trading yields me more than what my husband earns monthly. Hahahaha 😅

  10. If I could get a job that pays $11.50hr and get at least 35 hours a week I could pay all my bills eat healthy and put $500 in savings every month.

  11. then what do the do for the summer if schools are closed then

  12. $12 an hour . I made that 15 years ago

  13. 12 $ teenager wages hope

  14. NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE .
    SERGEANT Robert Justin alford green where is my two daughters and 7 children and what have you done to them.

  15. Around here, employers brag about paying $10/hr. Signs everywhere advertising that wage.

  16. Slaves must be slaves after all.. welcome to wage slavery America!

  17. THE GOP SHOULD BE PUT IN CAMPS AND MARCH TO THE DEATH OVENS TO MAKE AMERICA SAFE AGAIN #DEATHTOGOP

  18. Who wants these jobs

  19. My industry hasn't even opened its offices yet. Instead of allowing people to be placed in their careers, they are just going to pull the rug out from under everyone in order to staff restaurants? So nearly one million people are going to get food service jobs in 30 days. This is obviously a republican game to hinder the progress of the economic recovery plan. You really don't have to be too bright to see what is going on. .

  20. People need to start scaling down their businesses and paying employees more. Stop trying to squeeze the every drop from humans, and leaving them with pennies.
