The wage and salary war has been going on for generations. What’s the bet after we have all gone to see our maker our children will be standing in our shoes! Begging business owners to pay them a fair wage. Being thankful and gracious for the pay they get every pay day, even though they know they are worth more? Since when did we start to settle? We are teaching our children to be settlers. Wake up! The era of settlers is truly over, we have arrived! We need to teach our children lessons of self-worth, give them the tools toward freedom financially and get them to not ask but to demand and expect better. Not from any government agency or business owner but from themselves!
When I think of my next generation, I don’t think of my children. I think of my grand-children! What are my 6 daughters going to teach my grand-children? It makes me sick to think that my children will take their children to school, get them educated by people who are earning $35 -$65k p.a and then be over joyed when they get a job with an employer who will give them more work than they are paid for and less pay than they deserve. Generation after generation, its never going to end unless we start to work smarter and work together.
Here is the reality. The business owner will always, always pay you just enough to keep you coming back every day. The government will always, always pay you just enough to keep you dependent, quiet and thankful for the pennies they give you.
I don’t want my children or any child from this day forward to think that somehow, the government owes them money, the government needs to house them, employers need to pay them more money. No, we need to teach our children that they need to pay themselves what they are worth and they need to build their own homes and they need to teach as many people in this world as possible to do the same.
I applaud and love the work of social workers in our communities. Your hands are blessed and your hearts are cherished.
It is time for massive, colossal change and instead of enabling people our first priority and responsibility is to empower people. The ‘Working Poor’ is a Label not welcomed by me.
Every single person who decided to do something good. Began with a thought! If you think that you deserve handouts forever and that government, employers, society owes you something. Then generation after generation will be doing the same! When are we going to step away from the ‘Donate’ button and replace it with the ‘Enable’ button? Situations don’t change, people change.
We have to re invent ourselves, and unlearn the victim mentality, habits and pessimistic dialogue that plague and stop us from moving forward into abundance! The poverty mindset must be destroyed to make room for an Abundance Mindset.
It is blatantly obvious that there are more poor to middle class people than wealthy people in this whole entire world. Which means AT EVERYTIME IN ALL OF HISTORY…The MAJORITY WILL WIN IF THE GOAL AND DREAM IS BIG ENOUGH, IS GREAT ENOUGH, HUMBLE AND POWERFUL ENOUGH AND IF IT IS IN ALIGNMENT WITH WHAT OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN WANTS. GOD IS A GREAT AND LOVING GOD, AND HE DID NOT DIE ON THE CROSS TO SEE US BEG AT GOVERNMEN HOUSES AND REMAIN VICTIMS AND BURDENS OF THIS EARTH.
