My two sons work very hard, one in sales and the other in finance. They make $45,000 and $57,000, respectively. They donít have the luxury of working 8:00 am to 3:00 pm or having 12 weeks vacation. Nor do they have a pension. What youíre talking about may have been true 40 years ago but not now.

You're comparing different jobs. I'm doing the same thing now as I was fifteen years ago. Also, in both your examples, the incomes are double at the beginning and triple+ at veteran status for similar/less educational requirements.
