    this is because most of "young people" go through rebelous phase. the older they get their views change towards either typical conservative/liberal views.

    every country in west has seen that over years.

    debt is not a bad thing though . it always existed - since the first hard farmer in ancient mezopotamia had more grain then he could eat and "lend some" to lazy drunkard neighboor who was to lazy to work but otherwise would starve with he promist that next season he would get 2xback : (ye ye i know childrens tale - but describes where barter came from)

    it fuels the market and gives people jobs.

    as long as its kept in check .

    unless you are talking about people getting in huge debts because they borrow money to study liberal arts or other usless degrees. but then its their own fault.

    and as how you got there - i wil ltell you as outsider - you got there on hard work , blood and sweat of countless immigrants who over past 200 years were taking worst paying jobs so that locals could take better ones.

    first it were slaves

    then it were asians

    then it were irish / italians

    then it were eastern europeans

    and finally where streak ended it were mexicans

    (yes i do know is simplyfy)

    each first generation comming was always screwed - but their children had it easier - and grandkids usually if previous generations worked hard enough were assimilated and had it super easy .

    the chain got broken at certain point and you cannot go back - now your local people have to do those jobs - and have to live the lives that immigrants were living - no wonder they hate that life.

    Everyone has had a hand in the mess we're in.

    You harp on Walmart, yet it was founded by a non-boomer, and it's CEO is currently a non-boomer. Same goes for McDonald's.

    Do I need to list off a list of scummy "me-first" non-boomer CEO's? Because it's not hard.

    Brushing off boomers as selfish is no different from brushing off millennials as self-entitled whiners.

    There is no defining trait of a generation. Do you honestly think that as soon as the boomers retire that all the corporations are going to magically become benevolent?

    Do....do you think "breaking up" means "shutting down"?

    "This is awful!" you all cry as you shop a Walmart because its ramen noodles or whatever are 1c cheaper than the opposition.

    Don't all shop at the cheapest place and then feign outrage when you see the consequences of your actions. And if you want to fix this you change legislation, such as that for minimum wage, which is why completely unrestrained capitalism and tiny government isn't always good.

    Yes, you are in fact very intelligent...

    If we ignore for the moment your silly reductionist argument being entirely BTFO by being essentially word for word predicted by the comic.

    This is a thread about people who work full time and still require food stamps to purchase food. What's your solution for them? To spend more of the money they don't have which will magically improve their lot in life?

    My solution was in my first post.

    Maybe read it instead of resorting to dumb as fuck cartoons to prove what an edgelord you are. You just proved you can't even read a 3 line post... Just fucking wow.

    And like I said, have you told this to the people in thise small towns with only a wallmart(because they put all the other stores out of bussiness), they would love to hear your advice on where they are supposed to buy the supplies they need.

    Not my problem if you don't understand how a lot of people shopping at wallmart have no choice, maybe if you continue to defend them, its CEO will give you a raise!

    a weekly basis and about one-half of them worked full-time hours annually (see
    figure).
    Re-read the title of this thread, then you should see why I've been telling you that you are claiming false information. Clickbait is a real problem, and you are part of it. It's either clickbait is the problem or scientific illiteracy is. Not sure which camp you'd rather be a part of, but you must choose one.

    You are correct in that legislation must change to get Walmart paying livable wages.

    The point you are incorrect though is your proposed method of not buying at Walmart anymore. How the fuck does that change legislation? And even if you push Walmart out of business (not happening in towns where Walmart destroyed everything else) another company will do the very same. Because they can. Because legislation doesn't magically change when Walmart dies.
