  • May 23 2012: Till the time there is corruption in India there is less hope of removing poverty. Law makes a lot of difference in people's life. In the United States, there is a law that every employee at any workplace cannot be paid less than minimum wage i.e. $7.25 per hour. Also, job security is offered in many job areas. These laws are a requirement in a country like India. I have been living in India since i was born and i know that even a common man working at any level hs problems getting his paycheck or his lease approved.
    I think that it's time Swiss Banks open their reports to the world so that all the politicians with tons of money can be caught, tried and sent to prison. According to a report on the black money indians have in Swiss banks, all the money indians have can be used to pay all the debts, taxes. The poor can be paid Rs. 2000 per month for 2 years and India can become a better place. The Indian Youth will definitely bring a change within the next 10 years.
