Re: “Mayor Warren's goal for a poverty-stressed city

I'm sorry the employers are to blame. I worked management at a sweat shop that I won't name, but they paid barely above minimum wage and constantly complained about the lack of qualified applicants. Yet they ignored their low wages, and demotivating tactics like writing people up for being absent when they truly were sick.

You can't expect Rochester to get motivated without something to get motivated about. When their parents failed, is that motivating them? When their brother went to jail for small drug charge and had his life ruined while a judge abuses the system after her DUI? When these jobs don't pay you enough, especially if you have student debt?

In this current political environment where the wealthy and corporations get all the benefits at the expense of everyone else, its hard for me to stay motivated and I have a lot going for me. I have a decent job and good home and family. How do you expect someone less fortunate than me to be motivated? I don't expect them to. What I do expect is society to change to become a fairer place where everyone has an equal chance. Then maybe we can expect some motivation.
