    Those "7 day a week workers" are working for American companies.


    Better a few bad apples than plain old white bread for every meal.

    Diversity is another term for "all the rotten apples and eggs get mixed in" that always makes things taste better.

    The purpose of economic diversity is to prevent upward mobility and prosperity so why should they be concerned about the welfare of americans or those imported to keep wages, incomes, and financially secure from being a reality?

    Utah economy is by design out to prevent prosperity. In fact Utah has gone through its downward mobility over the last 20 years of socialism and restricted workers who do not have the right to be independent or free willed. Too many people working too many jobs that don't pay a wage indicates that our economy is rock bottom.

    The trill of college has lost its luster because the lies and misinformation had no basis of anything but poverty. Government and business in Utah have designed to oppress and prevent upward mobility, even for those who have invested tens of thousand of dollars on technology training that does not exist. Entertainment technology is not an economic asset, its what people do when they don't have a job or anything else to do that as productive labor.

    Debt is restricting mobility and jobs are too scarce and poverty economy is not a motive to improve.
