AIG Uses Millions Of Your Tax Dollars To Pay Executive Bonuses

But hey, let's blame the workers right for wanting to make a decent wage and have a few nice things. It's obviously the unions getting health care and pay raises and not corporate greed that put us in this bind. I have never been one to complain when someone makes a profit but I will when that company is claiming losses and getting major government aid that will make my grand kids broke and living in poverty before they are born. Last time I checked, I never got rides in private jets and a share of millions in bonuses. Sorry, I will stop asking for help with doctor's bills that were mostly created by my work environment so I don't interfere with your bonuses.

Job Fair in Salisbury, NC

On Wednesday March 11th from 8am to 12 noon, the Salisbury campus of RCCC(Rowan-Cabarrus Community College) will host a job fair. My sister in law passed the word to me as she attends the school. I don't know a website as yet (if I find it, I will post an update) or what employers will be there but she says they will have 35-40 potential employers.

My Theory On Paying For College As Told By The West Wing

I am a huge fan of this show and when I get a chance, I often watch reruns on Bravo or catch clips on YouTube. I could not help but want to post this one as someone who has a daughter in college and faced with the wonder of how I will help pay for it. I have been blessed for 10 years to have a job that I could afford it and now with her beginning her junior year in the fall, we will have to explore new options that may include me and her mother both being retrained. Anyway, here is one of my favorite clips from The West Wing.
