It’s not for everyone. I remember that she didn’t even show up for her meeting with us to turn in her keys and ID badge. It really was a dickens to cajole her into just coming through the front and leaving everything with reception, so she could get her last paycheck. Well she must have passed on to her colleagues what a great (lol) manager I was. The third shift charge nurse, an LPN, who was an older woman with at least 30 years experience, happened to have me as her patient 4 nights a week or more if she took on more time. She let her aides run that unit. She’d let them sleep during shift, through call bells, allow them to yell at other patients for being incontinent and making them lie in their excrement as punishment.
They are grown adults, you really dont have any rights to tell they where and where they cannot go. Protecting the household is important yes, but to treat your grown children LIKE children is rude and inconsiderate on your part. So no they in fact do not need your permission. At the very least median wages must keep pace with inflation. But I’ll make the outrageous comment that median wages must not just keep pace with inflation, they must also keep pace with productivity. When more product is being produced per capita, that product must be sold, or it will not continue to be made. Increased product being made and sold means that more spending in inflation adjusted (real) terms must be occurring. Real spending is really a measure of the amount of stuff being made and sold, (all compared to an anchor year).
So this means that if we have increased productivity causing increased production when comparing one year to the next, then it is logical to conclude that we have increased Inflation adjusted spending. Increased inflation adjusted spending means that nominal spending has increased at a rate faster than inflation. Now if median incomes do not keep pace with inflation plus productivity, if median wages only keep pace with inflation, then that means over time larger and larger proportions of the income resulting from the increased productivity is going to the wealthier income earners. And that is not a stable situation.
It IS reasonable to assume that most of the amount of spending increase must come from the masses, meaning that group of people whose average income tends be close to the median income, must be the ones paying for most of the extra production. And after they borrow to max, and use up all their savings, unless their incomes are keeping pace with inflation plus the rate of productivity increase, their spending will have to slow, meaning the extra production will not be purchased, so eventuallly if it doesn’t sell it will not be produced and this will lead to JOB LOSS, and decreased total income, further decreased demand, decreased production and economic depression.
I was at the beach with my then 2 year old son. We had been enjoying the day together. I was sitting in my beach chair and he was quietly playing in the sand with his toys.. It was getting time to go, and I was gathering up our things….then realized that somehow my wedding ring had slipped off. I had been all over the beach, walking my son in the waves, etc. I was absolutely panicked. I dug and dug all through each grain of sand around us. Nothing. A few young boys asked what I was looking for and if they could help. I told them, and offered a reward for anyone who found the ring.
I had to deal with not only the smell of my roommates, but the screaming as well bc they knew what they were lying in. Thank goodness, I had Siri with me at night. Now, Massachusetts is one of those states in which you aren’t supposed to record ANYONE without their knowledge, however, I let the unit manager listen to these aides abuse her patients and the nurse responsible for their care. The aides were fired when they heard themselves and the families came forward on their loved ones behalves in order to seek justice. However, the ring leader, the nurse, wasn’t fired. It wasn’t explained to me as to why, though it was because of HER license that these beasts that happened to work with the most helpless of us were allowed to do so for an innumerable amount of months or years before I got there.
