Aren't these socialist ideals?

Forty hour work week, fair labor laws, maternity leave, welfare, social security, disability, unemployment, over time, vacation/sick time?

  • Being a SBA sole proprietor, I don't receive these, unless I account for myself and save:


    Forty hour work week, fair labor laws, maternity leave, over time, vacation/sick time


    Being a Capitalist, I don't believe in these


    welfare, disability, unemployment


    Being a realist, I am WELL aware that when I need this, it will most likely be all gone!


    social security


    Out of the 9 programs you mentioned.  7 are flawed.  What does that tell you?!?!?!

  • i dont think my husband has seen a 40 work week in the last three years he puts over twice that many hours in a week. and no he does not get paid over time, just by the load he hauls.

    i was not complaining i was stating a fact that a lot of people work more then 40 hours in a week and still do not make it.
