I’m baaack. We got home yesterday few hours before President Obama flew to Kansas City, saw some extra security around the airport. We had a great college tour/vacation, although the vacation part was rather slim. But it was fun and very informative, so it’s all good. Today is registration for my kiddos, and tomorrow work… back to our regularly scheduled life.
Hope your week is going well :)
Former Democratic governor of Ohio Ted Strickland tried to live on minimum wage for a week and, in his own words, he “didn’t make it.”
In an op-ed for POLITICO, Strickland explains how he failed in his attempt to live for just seven days on $77, the amount the “Live the Wage” campaign estimates is left in a 40-hour minimum wage employee’s weekly pay of $290 after accounting for taxes and housing. Strickland, a Harvard fellow and well-off political operative, was clearly unprepared for just how quickly expenses added up. He had spent his $77 by Thursday after realizing his meager budget left him without the money necessary even to pay for public transportation.
and look at that healthy dollar menu lunch.
