Corporate greed has been killing the middle class for decades. Executives have been rewarding themselves with yearly million dollar plus bonuses while the true workers usually don’t see anything. Corporations have the desire to maximize their profits which they tend to pass on as a cost to their employees by reducing or simply eliminating benefits. Sometimes companies will move their operations overseas and pay pennies per hour to foreign workers just to squeeze out every dollar.
Student loans are a very common way to help pay for college. Most students will apply for grants and scholarships, but even if they get them, they’ll have to supplement the rest of tuition with student loans. They’ll be getting a loan that will help with getting their college degree, which will land them a great job, then they can repay their loan and begin their great independent life. Sadly this is not what normally happens.

If you wanted to watch Netflix what would you use? A computer? A phone? A Tablet, Xbox, PlayStation, or Roku? There are a lot of options to choose from for just watching one service. What about if you wanted to watch cable TV? Well you would just use your cable box that the cable company gives you and charges you monthly for. This adds up to over $230 per year, and if you have multiple TVs prepare to pay for multiple boxes.
It stupefies my tiny human brain when I contemplate the formidable power of a few wrinkled pieces of funny-smelling, dry green paper. It may sound naively obtuse to all of the worldly, complacent materialists out there, but ever since I was a little kid I thought it was funny that pieces of paper should hold so much sway over a person’s very existence. I found it very curious, and I still do.
It rules everything you do. Plain and simple, money is NOT the root of all evil, it just provides fuel for what version evil you want to play with.
Answer me this: Would you work if you didn’t get paid? No, of course not. Greed is good. It makes us want to work harder, to get that car, that house, that lovely retirement fund. Yes folks, money is what makes you get up in the morning, and go to work. We would all lead boring plain lives without the want for money.
