Average US Wage

This started out as a blog for my Daughters, but it is now for general reading .................... I read that the average annual wage for all occupations in the United States is $37,800. The average wage for a manufacturing production worker is $33,000. So that means that there are some above these levels, and some below these levels, which is how the average is established. So ....... if you are above the average consider yourself fortunate. I also heard on the radio, I think CNBC that our inner city kids are not graduating from High School at an alarming rate. Detroit & Cleveland city schools are graduating about 25% of the students. (that is 75% of students don't have a basic HIGH SCHOOL diploma)
Suburbs are turning out about 75% student graduation. Colon Powell who was involved in the study, if I recall correctly, says this is not a epidemic but a catastrophe! What are we to do??

Multiply the below by 40 years and see what kind of diff it makes
Average Annual Earnings
Professional Degree $109,600
Doctoral Degree $89,400
Master's Degree $62,300
Bachelor's Degree $52,200
Associate's Degree $38,200
Some College $36,800
High School Graduate $30,400
Some High School $23,400

This seems like such a huge problem that trancends generations! It just boggles my mind as what to do. You can't punish the parents by fining or putting them away, it would only make things worse. The goverment has made them so totally dependant on them that they can't even take care of themselves let alone their children. And we don't need more goverment going in and policing parenting. What to do, What to do?

Leeds Castle has been open to the public since 1976 and it is through
the work of the Leeds Castle Foundation that its majesty is
preserved. Classiest of all is Her Danish Royal Majesty's yacht Dannebrog, a classic, pristine vessel built in Copenghagen in the early 1930s. The plans were latter abandoned following agitations from Equity, the Musicians' Union and theatre owners under the Save London Theatres Campaign.

Dental problems can have adverse effects on the general health of an
individual. Many beauty parlours and the like also now offer bleaching as a treatment,
but only a fully qualified and practicing dentist will be in a position
to ensure that the process is carried out with maximum levels of efficiency and safety.
On the other hand, if we maintain our oral health in poor condition, it will damage the total health of
the person apart from affecting the speech system.
