    You mean like the Hispanic workers in the US?

    Bulgaria poverty rate for 2017 was 7.90%, a 1.5% decline from 2016.
    % of people living in poverty in the 10 poorest states in the US:

    Mississippi (19.75%)
    Louisiana (18.83%)
    New Mexico (18.63%)
    West Virginia (17.54%)
    Kentucky (16.67%)
    Arkansas (16.36%)
    Alabama (16.13%)
    Oklahoma (15.00%)
    Tennessee (14.36%)
    Georgia (14.11%)
    State with the lowest poverty rate in the us? New Hampshire at 7.3%

    Yeah those Bulgarian laborers have it real bad.

    Now do Romania.

    Also

    As of 2020 the poverty line is an income of €185 or less per month and around 1.5 million Bulgarian citizens (22% of the population) live below the poverty line.[1]
    So I guess you can also just make up some shit.

    Its what google told me, dont pretend like we check fact before posting.

    Anyhow; even at 22% my point still stands and with Romania at 23%: both are only a few percent worse off then a quarter of the US states. (i left out Puerto Rico and American Samoa with 43% and 65% poverty rates because lol)

    So yeah those Bulgarian & Romanian laborers have it real bad. Dem Mississippiians are real lucky to be living that american good life kek.

    I'm just saying, the EU has as much variability in it as the US, except the US is a single country and y'all are just preying on weaker nations you let into your club for that exact purpose.

    Maybe its our old nemesis, the racist Republican party who is to blame.

    OFC it is...

    “Racist sentiment is built into the fact that the state government squeezes the funds for public schools, which might technically be desegregated but remain very segregated because the whites who have the money send their children to private schools. Built into the fact that Mississippi has the highest rate of child poverty in the nation and some of the lowest test scores. Built into the fact that Medicaid provides health insurance for more than 50% of children in the state and many senior citizens as well and yet our public officials repeatedly vote to deprive the program of resources, to shrink coverage.”

    Or how german corporations exploit the workforce of less developed nations. Like here in Hungary in return for Mutti not causing problems for Orban:

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/22/w...slave-law.html

    Or the classic bank squeeze Germany and France did on Greece because they wouldn't control their greed.

    Or how Germany is forcing through Nordstream 2 despite p. much everyone directly involved being opposed to it except for Germany and Russia. It will also take away one of the few leverages Eastern Europe has on Russia.

    Or how etc etc

    Point is, you're not playing fair with the newer members and the euro payments are the least thing you can do to make up for it.

    Not to mention your greens are going full retard and sabotage nuclear energy in Europe while expanding the gas infrastructure wanting to tie other member states to be dependent on providing them supply.

    The entire, ENTIRE, history of US is exploiting weaker nations, from indians to africans, chinese and arabs. And when it doesn't great depressions happen.


    What does it fucking matter how big the states are? You are not commuting 200kms every day like some people in Russia do.
    Meanwhile chyna is laying millions of high-speed railroad kms a year.

    Erich, move to Saudi Arabia already, you are at the same level as fucking Meester at this point, but worse you post about ten times as much. You are a moron and if you said this shit outlook somewhere someone would put it on some r/shoutingnonsense type vid and laugh at you over and over. Get a hold of yourself or just make one post a day ffs it barely makes sense to say "I'm arguing with a south African American who doesn't understand racism but hates it but supports globalism and hates the EU, is violently pro American but hates half the country, supports a oppressive monarchy that is openly racist and also has some money somehow"
