Americans are not good at leading cost-efficient lifestyles.

Did you really think this through or do you listen to THAT much AM talk radio?

Or save to go home in the future to buy land and cattle.
Which will make them a very nice life.

While Americans who do this sort of work, will never be able to go and buy, land and cattle, on a minimum wage. Might be lucky to just buy FOOD.

THAT IS THE DIFFERENCE.

And know one ever seems to state it…..
