Twenty Signs You are an American Worker

I found this gem on the intertubes.

The following are 20 signs you might be a typical American worker….

1. If you are working three jobs and you still don’t have enough money at the end of the month, you might be a typical American worker.

2. If your job involves asking the question “Would you like fries with that?”, you might be a typical American worker.

3. If you shop at the dollar store because Wal-Mart is too expensive, you might be a typical American worker.

4. If your job requires you to wear a smock, a brightly colored polo shirt or lots of “flair”, you might be a typical American worker.

5. If people are constantly asking you where the restroom is while you are at work, you might be a typical American worker.

6. If your employer hires extra part-time workers in order to avoid giving anyone full-time hours, you might be a typical American worker.

7. If you are required to watch a mindless “training video” after being hired, you might be a typical American worker.

8. If the company you work for is owned by someone on the other side of the world, you might be a typical American worker.

9. If a trained seal could do your job and you feel like your expensive education is going to waste, you might be at typical American worker.

10. If you don’t have any health insurance at all, you might be a typical American worker. Only about 25 percent of all part-time workers in the United States receive employee benefits such as health insurance or paid sick leave.

11. If your car is older than your kids are, you might be a typical American worker.

12. If you can’t afford to buy the things that you are selling to the public, you might be a typical American worker.

13. If the balances on your credit cards are larger than your bank accounts are, you might be a typical American worker.

14. If going to Burger King is your idea of “fine dining”, then you might be a typical American worker.

15. If it costs more to fill up your car with gas than you will make at your job today, you might be a typical American worker. The price of gasoline has increased by 83 percent since Barack Obama first took office, and the average cost of a gallon of gas in the United States is now up to $3.52.

16. If you eat your cereal with a fork so that you can save milk, you might be a typical American worker.

17. If your electricity bill keeps going up but your paycheck never does, you might be a typical American worker.

18. If it feels like you are losing an organ every time you pay for health insurance each month, you might be a typical American worker.

19. If you feel like your employer is constantly tempted to replace you with someone younger and cheaper, then you might be a typical American worker.

20. If you are so poor that you cannot even afford to pay attention, you might be a typical American worker.

    21) If you have a proper qualification, but your manager is an oxygen thief with an “MBA without a first degree”(a first-year university dropout).
    Oh wait, that also happens in Asia – along with everything in your list above.
    Excellent article as usual, dissention

    No wonder ´mericans need a war every fricken decade to distract them from the “war” their own treacherous leaders are constantly waging on them.

    Though even a rat stops running away when finally cornered.
    We´ll see how the US “rats” will react when they start chipping them and/or throwing them in the meat grinder to defend the “Holy Land”.

    Either way it will be hilarious to watch.
    Want fries with that?

    Yeah, we have too much unskilled labor, and they will continue to fuck themselves over as they vote to bring in more Mexicans to displace them, and other dipshit policies. I’ve rarely had a liberal recognize the cognitive dissonance between wanting to reduce unemployment yet continuing supporting weaker borders.

    I stopped giving a fuck about these people along time ago, these people are natural slaves, so willing to give themselves up. What we should focus on is that the ‘elite’ not use them against us, or build ourselves up so we can defend ourselves from their onslaught.

    I don’t see why you give a damn AD, have you seen these people? They can’t keep their lives together for shit. It’s a damn mess, I don’t think these people ever had their shit together, it’s just a lot easier to see now with our easy access to information.

    Kaz, I agree with you in that the platforms of both political parties are wired to oppress Americans. However, Americans are better off to vote for the lesser of 2 evils and that means a vote for the democrat party. The republican party is much much worse than the democtrat party – even if the dems have a backwards idea of unruley immigration. I know, we are completely screwed and will not be a super power too much longer with a crumbling structure like this. America needs an independent party that looks nothing like the republicrat gov we have now. If conditions are better in your country, i can only envy you. Likely you live in a very very small country. You can count on the infectous greed coming to a town near you soon…..unfortunately. When people do not stick together……then greed rules the world.
