  •     There was a famous story told once in awhile –  I would listen closely.  
        An owner of a vineyard went to town looking for folks to harvest his vineyard. Before they went to harvest he explained how he was going to pay everyone. They agree and started harvesting. and he explained and they all agree. Evening came and each and every person got paid according to the original  agreement. The morning crew were upset, but he said, “You folks agree to the pay.”
        The United States is considered the land of equal opportunity but why are people not getting the same pay as everyone else. If we were all getting paid the same as other folks are then the country would run smoother. We wouldn’t have the same problems that we have now. In fact, I think a lot more folks would be happier and less health problems, and we could all afford things and nothing would be too high for consumers. Gas would be cheaper as well as food. Think about it!
