Here's a hard-assed reminder of what life's like for the people you rely on but don't see: Being Poor.
  • Being poor is a $200 paycheck advance from a company that takes $250 when the paycheck comes in.
  • Being poor is getting tired of people wanting you to be grateful.
  • Being poor is knowing you're being judged.
  • Being poor is needing that 35-cent raise.
  • Being poor is thinking $8 an hour is a really good deal.

A reminder for everyone who's seen more poor people on TV in the last week than pretty much ever...sometimes work is just making it to the next day.
