yeah! cause $9.00 an hour is way too much money. Here in Skook County, when the job ad says "great pay", that usually means $8.00 a hour. So after taxes, you can bring home a whopping $250 for a weeks work so you can take that check and one more to just pay the rent.

Unskilled jobs that most anyone can fill lead to minimal lifestyles that few aspire to. Always been that way, and always will be.

if i made nutcrackers i would hope to make more than $7.50 an hour. $9 an hour and I would make them on weekends too while polishing my tinfoil hat.
