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.
