. . . only if that makes you special, if he does that to everybody (he does that to everybody) that is just Walter being a Walnut. He stopped as soon as I started a thread asking him if he was feeling okay. . . . Human trafficking is a PM only subject apparently, mothers selling children specifically will help him find something else to waste his time on.

He gets nervous when Wall St might tank and he is on the outside looking in. He will be as vulnerable as it gets so 'be gentle' don't want him checking out early, right Walnut??

Wouldnt you prefer 8 cents an hour? You could sit up all night watching youtube conspiracy theory videos and shift through fascistbook memes to post on here before going to bed for the day.

Didn't hear much when they were the only game in town, besides civil servants protest for higher wages all the time, does that mean they are under payed?

How much does Walmart in Canada pay?
Average Walmart hourly pay ranges from approximately $11.00 per hour for Claims Associate to $23.37 per hour for Local Driver. The average Walmart salary ranges from approximately $23,452 per year for Unloader to $89,686 per year for Co-manager.
Salary information comes from 2,395 data points collected directly from employees, users, and past and present job advertisements on Indeed in the past 36 months.
Please note that all salary figures are approximations based upon third party submissions to Indeed. These figures are given to the Indeed users for the purpose of generalized comparison only. Minimum wage may differ by jurisdiction and you should consult the employer for actual salary figures.

Not working at Walmart $0 per hour.

Too lazy to put that much effort into it for sure. It takes a lot of hard work to build a company like that.

Interesting stat.

Why the increase in cars?

Could be that two were now needed because both parents worked?

Could be that cars became more common due to productivity?


Hmn... you missed some of your quote up there, Wally...

Quote:

As the price of cars became more affordable and as international companies began competing with US companies, vehicle ownership underwent significant changes throughout the years. This trend has pointed toward increasing ownership. For example, in 1960, there was approximately 1 car owned for every 3 people in the population. By 1970, this statistic increased to 1 car for every 2 people. In the 1980’s and 1990’s, the statistic was a little more than 1 car for every 2 people. This dropped slightly in 2000 and 2008, when ownership statistics showed just fewer than 1 car for every two people.

The Need For Personal Vehicles In The US

For individuals living in large metropolitan areas, having a personal vehicle is often not a necessity. Metropolitan life offers reliable public transportation, like commuter trains, subways, and buses. For those individuals living in rural areas, however, owning a personal vehicle becomes somewhat of a necessity. This reality is reflected in current vehicle ownership statistics. As of 2013, US Census estimates suggest that there were approximately 1.8 vehicles per household. Vehicle ownership in the US is higher than any place else in the world. Below is a look at some of the US states with the highest per capita vehicle ownership rates.


And then there's the rest of the article.


Owning a car outside of a city of necessary, or at least having access to a car. Just because a person has a car, doesn't mean they're doing 'well', either, financially. It also depends too on insurance, and Gods know that varies depending on the vehicle, the company and so many other factors it's insane. I just upgraded my vehicle and though my insurance didn't go up that much, I was told that insurance rates are going up/are up to almost the highest it was at a few years ago. AKA it's "bad", not as bad as it could be, but bad.


Having a car does not denote wealth.

One generational difference that doubled car ownership is that, in my parent's day, only one parent needed to go to work to sustain an household in a reasonable level of affluence. Both parents have to work now to pay the mortgage, keep their heads above water and they both likely need to drive to different places to do that.
