Path from poverty to prosperity begins with a job
Question: With the rich getting richer in this country, how is the little guy supposed to get ahead?
Answer: Get older and get a job.
No, that isn’t a joke or a sarcastic remark. It is the most obvious and most verified path from poverty to prosperity.
“Talk about the poor getting poorer,” columnist Walter Williams wrote in a 2005 editorial, “tugs at the heart of decent people and squares nicely with the agenda of big government advocates, but it doesn’t square with the facts.”
