36. Thanks for the correct comment!
I read it front to back and found just what you did - an accurate accounting of what it's like to work full time on minimum wage and still not have a decent standard of living!

It is quite nutty to claim any bias here at all.

And I should know - I was sleeping on a friend's couch ten years ago after starting all over again! Thank God for $50k in student loans - 2 degrees later, we're comfortable - not rich, but enough.

Her comments on WalMart matched what I find true of most retailers - they want you busy all the time, and there's always a mess to neaten up somewhere. And they really don't want you to do anything but what they tell you to do.

Maybe the little darlings will get a job at WalMart or Target or Taco Bell or you name it - it might just open their prissy little eyes!
