Let's see, she works about five hours a day and can't live on what she makes. Go to a community college, take some courses in something that will pay better and get a better job. Jobs like she has had for so long are usually considered entree level jobs and usually don't pay much. You get some work experience there, build a resume and go on to bigger and better things. Now, people want to be able to retire from McDonald's as a burger flipper after thirty years and have a 100% pension after putting all your kids through college and paying off the mortgage. I have to agree with Bhairtu for once, inflation if the culprit.

I actually wrote, in my original version of this post, as a kind of "teaser" line before the URL, "Welcome to your future, America." Then I deleted it, because I figured FFLers and TMers (not to mention Americans in general) wouldn't be able to handle that. Thanks for breaking the ice so I didn't have to. > On 12/20/2013 12:21 PM, TurquoiseB wrote: > > */ > > /**/http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/18/bernadette-feazell_n_4469116.html > > /* > > > > > > > > > > >
