  2. High unemployment in California…YET every store we go there are signs on the windows saying Help Wanted! Even McDonalds at the drive up window! offering to pay $14.50 an hour! As you drive by some businesses have sandwich boards out on the street-sides begging for help.

    The jobs are there…people don’t want to work because the government is paying more to be idle. People aren’t stupid. If you get payed to say home….you will.
