19. Damn Shameful.

Is the government still pumping billions of dollars into the stock market every month? It's not something I really keep up on because I haven't got any money to invest, but I do wonder if that's, at least in part, the reason why the stock market appears to be doing so well.

As for the wages... this is a National outrage and embarrassment. I make eight dollars an hour, without benefits - and it's not enough to survive on my own, it's not enough to go back to school. There are a lot of people on the same boat. It sucks. I guess the economic recovery kind of went over our heads, or something. It could be worse, I suppose, people like me could all be unemployed... but to call what's happening here an economic recovery for the majority, is a terrible lie.
