The only work I've ever done where I got substantially paid was refereeing soccer games. On average, I would make about $20 a game, depending on the age group. I think that's the easiest job I'll ever have. You can really clean up doing that kind of thing. I would do about 20-30 games in a season, and by the end of a season I would have enough money to buy a guitar or put towards a new computer.

California, my dad had this poster thing up with the minimum wage law. It said that the minimum wage is at $7.50 per hour and next year it's going to be at $8.00.

Oh. Most stores like Target and the major restaurant and grocery chains pay minimum wage around where I live, but it's still possible to find somewhere that doesn't pay minimum wage, if you know where to look.

I think that, economically, Europe is becoming the new U.S.. Everyone wants to live there and work there, and their money is the most powerful in the world.

Actually it's China...because China exports a lot of stuff and a lot of the products we have here in the US are Made in China.

Well in terms of foriegn investment, China is quite rich and growing, but in terms of economic influence and value Europe is pretty much the biggest.

I think if all politicians weren't scum they would try and move all developed nations toward a common market, and then start helping the developing nations develop.

China is still a developing country, so their money isn't very valuable to the world market. I suppose one could consider China a world power, but they are by no means a wealthy nation. Russia is in a similar juxtaposition. The only reason countries in western Europe (except the U.K.) are considered powerful, at least economically, is because they are all on a common market with one another.

There are countless advantages to having multiple developed nations on a common market, and the U.S. is a fine example. Every state in the U.S. has its own economy because we do not have as strong of a central government as many. On the other hand, our central government also has more of an umbrella economy that makes all the states function as a whole. Gradually, states are diverging out of the umbrella. The European Union is the opposite from us. Western Europe started out as all completely independent nations, and still are, but they are now taking steps towards unity.

I think that if the U.S., Europe, and a number of other countries were on a common market the whole world could be a lot better off.

Unfortunatley, yes I do. hicktown USA. Most of the kids around here only care about sex, hunting, drugs, alcohol, and trucks. I don't actually hang around with them, they sicken me.
