The view of employment around here is screwy. You're obsessed with jobs. You scream jobs, jobs, jobs, where are the jobs? If someone doesn't have a job, you ridicule them and tell them to get a job. If someone has a job that's a typical low-paying service industry job, you ridicule them and tell them to get a real job. If someone complains that workers in the service industry should be paid more and treated better, you say they should be happy just to have a job. But when more of those kinds of jobs are created, depending on the government in power, those jobs aren't good enough.
You basically say that people deserve better jobs, but if they have ****ty jobs, they should be hated for it and thankful. The only real consistency is that you're just full of hatred for working people.

You can live on a part time job depending on your wages and how often you work. And why wouldn't they count part time jobs? Just what exactly are we measuring when we count jobs? What are job numbers supposed to indicate?
If we wanted to measure how well people can live on the wages they get from their jobs, you wouldn't be able to count minimum wage full-time jobs either, or even some full-time jobs over minimum wage.
