17. After living through the early 80s

When the working class was finally pushed into the toilet, this isn't so bad. The inflation isn't nearly as terrifying as it was when I was in high school then into the 80s. Workers are starting to do much better, because they don't have to worry about massive layoffs over greed and other idiotic reasons.

Some things are worse, yes, but this is livable for my household in comparison to the gnawing fear I always had in the early 80s after I left home to be on my my own out of necessity. If I had to live with my mother one more day, I was gonna kill myself.
