If the economy were to really boom like it did in the late 1990s, what impact will that have on the wages of unskilled workers and the type of jobs that they do?

I suspect the average person who works for under $10 an hour today will not be part of the booming economy. They will just compete against a growing number of immigrants who will flood into the country. Prices will go up faster due to the booming economy and the unskilled workers will lose out and still struggle.

Agree or disagree? Lets discuss.

i agree, it doesn't matter that if the economy booms and the rich get richer its the poor who get poorer, the price of living goes up but wage does not, making it EXTREMELY hard to live, this coming from someone who is on disability, though I do want to get a job, it will just be very hard for me because of my back injury, for me, whether im on disability with a part time job, or off disability with a part time job or just disability or job either way ill be living pay check to paycheck and lack of food and hungry at the end of each month

You can't compete with people from Mexico. They will work for less while doing it better and more efficiently.

If you can help it, don't become a laborer. I've done it and some of the feelings you endure are the type that make you want to kill yourself.

I wouldn't say "more efficiently", unless you think banging rocks on power equipment is a good idea.

I wish I was kidding. So many damaged machines from them beating on shit with rocks to loosen or tighten shit.

Wiping their ass and throwing the TP on the ground next to the toilet was annoying as fuck to deal with as well.

Clog it up and not even tell anyone about it. "No sé cómo funcionan los inodoros."
