The more time you have off and to 'self', the less you want to give your time and self back to 'the system'
The more time you have off, and to get to know 'self' again, the less of self and time you want to give back to system when system back and fully functioning again.
You think to yourself, 'Gee, been working all these years, decades, and still only a month or two away from nothing?'...
If the system cared about you, us, you wouldn't have to labor and toil until crippled, or until 60, and even 70's. CEO sure don't, and other money manager upper level types, or City/County/State administrators who receive elaborate pensions and severance packages.
Many Government officials get more on the way out, in the form of severance pay, than most will earn in 2 decades of labor.
Why do they deserve that and you don't?
Talk radio donkeys like Rush or Hannity will tell you 'Err, cause they work harder'...BS...they don't work any harder than a cashier working a 10 hour shift at McDonalds.
They simply earn more cause they get paid more, cause the wealthy class take care of themselves.
And I'm sure, out of boredom, many scanning want adds and are shocked to see how low pay is now.
All these fancy titles loaded down with responsibilities, yet when get to pay section $14.50 an hour??
Again, that's 3rd world pay, right here in America, after monthly expenses.
We've all been conditioned to be OK with earning 3rd world pay, as long as have A/C or heat, and car to drive to and from work, we tell ourselves we're lucky.
But wont be telling yourself that when over the age of 50, and body begins to wear down, yet still only 2-3 checks away from nothing, after a life of laboring and being told laboring and working is the American way, and your duty.
When sick, can no longer earn, and about to lose it all, that whole 'it's your duty to labor for minimum wage' crap will be noise to you...
