QUOTATION OF THE DAY
"It's hard on my psyche. There's no break. There's no time to breathe. I always have to think about the next step just to survive."
BOBBY BINGHAM, of Kansas City, Mo., who works three part-time jobs to make ends meet.
This after the Senate Republicans--including, of course, our own Missouri Senator Roy Blunt--voted down an increase in the minimum wage yesterday:
The original quote, however, above, comes from this article:
Mr. Bingham's input to the article:
Bobby Bingham, 38, of Kansas City, Mo., works three part-time jobs seven days a week to make ends meet, but struggles to cover basic living expenses: his apartment, his car, his car insurance, gas and utilities. He is also heavily in debt, owing $30,000 in student loans and about $12,000 in credit-card debt with an annual interest rate of 17 percent.
“It’s hard on my psyche,” he said. “There’s no break. There’s no time to breathe. I always have to think about the next step just to survive. It’s not like I can look forward and plan, because I’m just trying to think about tomorrow.”
It would be nice if we could get back to having and supporting a strong middle class againl.
