    Living on $7/hour is possible but not nice at all. I remember when I thought I was making good money by getting $10/hour. Of course, I had a safety net in my family. Many people don’t. The minimum wage hasn’t risen in Georgia since ’96.

    $7/day is even less nice.

    Some people live on less. Not well, though. They are malnourished and unhappy.

    i sent this link to Doug Henwood, since it is his birthday today according to friendster. Anyhow, he thanked me for it, and said he just figured out that the richest 30,000 Americans have incomes equal to the poorest 45 million.

    math is fun! and depressing!
