I worked in restaurants as a late teen. In one high end restaurant, many of the kitchen staff were poorly paid and overworked. When I worked in fast food, theft was common. I suspect it was a result of low wages and trying to make it until pay day. I once caught a widowed mother of three stealing three regular hamburgers. She was stuffing them into her bag when I walked into the break room. She was so frightened when she looked up to see me looking at her. I didn't say anything as I figured she was stealing to feed her kids. I guess that makes me a bad person... oh well. Anyway I tell this story because I'm sure low wage restaurant workers are stealing food to feed themselves and their families. It's like restaurants are "hustling backwards". Pay workers so little that many resort to theft which makes restaurants pay x amount of dollars for high tech surveillance equipment. Why not pay workers a higher wage, most certainly high end places can afford to pay workers at least 15.00 per hour come on.
@erinep The libary is the one place I don't mind paying fees. I never feel guility about owing the libary. I just view it as a donation.
This makes me sad. A libary without books.
@Ester Bloom thank you. I'm certainly going to read Bad Feminist ASAP. I've read a few interviews with the author. I'm really curious to read her essay about reality television. I will also look into the other books you've mentioned. Thanks
Love this post. I'm looking to read a book essays by someone between 20-40 years of age. You guys have any good recommendations?
@Aconite agreed. I loved reading "How Other People Do Money".
Light cranberry juice and vodka. Just a little sweet but enough alcohol to clear your allergies. Try knobs creek whiskey.
