The jig is up. It is. It’s time to get real about wages, health insurance and the fact that many people are still struggling even though they work full time.
Are you thinking: “Well, then get a better job?” OK, that’s fair, but it’s not as easy as you think it is, especially if you are of a certain age. Those of you who have been at the same job for decades may have a hard time understanding that, so I hope this column will bring clarity and some empathy.
