There is no more time remaining to make excuses and give encouraging speeches about how the poor and the working poor are doing much better when in fact all are doing so much worst and the real insult to these proud American workers is the continued need to further enslave them financially with paying them minimum wage which is so far below poverty wage standards that these workers no matter their race or educational level will never break free of the social financial stigma associated with low salaries and sub standard living. We are a people of unimaginable wealth in this free market society and we keep saying that all Americans can share in this financial freedom and dream but it is an out right lie, as there are segments in this society that continue to build hidden and invisible barriers to make it nearly impossible for the working poor to ever share that dream and thus forth, they stay poor with no hope of climbing out of poverty. We have a nation of millionaires and billionaires who will never in their life time ever spend their personal wealth, but we have over 47 million working poor who only barely make $16,000 a year and will have to work to the age of 70years just to amass $250,000. This is totally unacceptable unless we as Americans who preach daily that we stand by each and every American tell President Obama to put forth a working plan to immediately alleviate the financial restraint in this system that prohibits this class of workers to never ever have nothing substantial and give them the same avenues of opportunities to have financial freedom as that of the Middle Class and executives and the wealthy and it must be done today and no more promises. The time is now for meaningful change with hope for tomorrow
