Government April Fools Joke On Americans

Its April and you are a fool if you think American is a wealthy country.

Do you remember Mitt Romney saying 47% are poor and have an entitlement lifestyle?

Paul Ryan says that 30% of Americans no longer believe in the American Dream.

The joke is on us because many of us believed them and they couldn’t have been more wrong. Hey Mitt….Hey Paul, its not 30%, its not 47%……ITS 70%!

In news today, it was released that 7 out of every 10 people in America work crappy pay service, fast food, retail, or entry level office jobs.

In a CNN Money article by Tami Lubby, “Wages Stink at America’s Most Common Jobs”

America’s most common jobs come with lousy pay.

Workers in seven of the 10 largest occupations typically earn less than $30,000 a year, according to new data published Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s a far cry from the nation’s average annual pay of $45,790.

Food prep workers are the third most-common job in the U.S., but have the lowest pay, at a mere $18,720 a year for 2012. Cashiers and waiters are also popular professions, but the average pay at these jobs tallies up to less than $21,000 annually. There are 4.3 million retail sales workers out there, making them the most common job, but the position pays only $25,310 for the year.

Among the 10 most popular professions, only the nation’s 2.6 million registered nurses earn a good living, bringing home nearly $68,000 a year on average. Another two of the most common jobs — secretaries and customer service representatives — have an average annual wage of about $33,000.

Wages have been in the spotlight this year as the debate over income inequality intensified. Middle-class Americans have been losing ground, as median household income dropped by more than $4,000 since 2000.

So here is the biggest April Fools joke of 2013:

“Hey you live in America. We are the wealthiest, strongest, and happiest country on the planet”


7 out of 10 of you are working 50+ hours a week for less than $30,000 a year…And you know your paycheck is only for 80% of the total earnings so that is a take home of $24,000 a year…And you know your living expenses are more than $2,000 a month….so how are you eating? What happens if you get sick? What happens if you are injured?

Fox news says everything is great and you are just moochers! April Fools….your not moochers….your just poor.
