Welcome to the working poor

Upton Sinclair (LOC)

No, I didn't want it. It paid $10.00 and hour. Can you live on that? Not if you are single you can't. I kept thinking about something my brother told me about a job interview he had. He had many years experience as an apartment complex manager and repair person. When he moved back to Washington State he interviewed for such a job. When they got to the part where he asked what the job paid, and he got the answer, his immediate thoughts were: "I thought slavery was outlawed." Think again, bro. Not anymore, they just call it "underemployed".
