Which was also Barbara Ehrenreich's opinion at the close of "Nickel and Dimed" as to why it's so hard to get ahead in America.  In order to get and keep a job, you absolutely have to have a physical address. And sure you'd save money by having 10 roomies, but no landlord in his/her right mind is going to allow that many people to share a dwelling. Prices on gas may drop every now and then, but prices on rent always go up.

"I mean, come on, $15.... if you are harping on them for that, then, you are basically saying you can't have any "entertainment".  Which is fine, but, realize what you are saying. "

If they wanted to have entertainment they shouldn't have been born poor.

1nsanilicious: I don't understand the value of posting these news articles. It's the equivalent of standing outside the houses of others and despising them for being better off than you.

Seriously folks, let ... It ... Go...
