After reading the pouty screed by this woman I did think for a moment "what has happened to Americans? She seems to make some points about how tough things are for her age range, but I say "so what"? Is her life any different than others who came before or are here now? No, but she sure is a excuse maker.
Here is the link and I am not sure it behind a paywall or not.
Now she has been right up front about being a lesbian and she has a female wife. OK, fine, I am a heterosexual male and unmarried. We are even. But to think she has it tough is one of degrees I guess. When I was 20 I had a wife and infant and made a buck fifty per hour. I made that work. Then as I like money more I got a better job and eventually I started my own business. I survived, my family survived and there was no time to whine. I worked 60-70 hours a week.
Eventually, I became OK with my income and was able to build my own home and buy a good used truck and car. Many people have a really expensive car and that is their personal status symbol apparently. So those car payments are huge but they look good.
Jobs here are tough since the liberals of Nevada County won the war on landuse and General Plans. Thank goodness Grass Valley. At least GV has always had people with common sense. They know jobs provide a community with stability. Young families can stay. But in the County, the left won and we see the results. Schools closing, young families headed for the city. Low wages because all the left wants here are service jobs for the old farts. Hell you can't even get a grocery store for Alta Sierra! And the largest job sector is government jobs!
But the left won. And now we have these people moving here as they have for many years from the city. I heard lots of testimony from them when I was a Supe. They were usually at the meetings trying to defeat a business or land use application. They would say, "I moved here for the peace and quiet and took a huge pay cut to be here". I said why do you squander that college education on a service job at minimum wage then? And they continually complain abut the economy they screwed up here.
Over the years I have listened to the whiners like this Hillary gal and I tell them to look in the mirror for the reason you are getting minimum wage here. But of course these people never accept their personal responsibility in anything and complain the people that actually have the money from hard work are to blame. We need a national psychological test for these kinds of people. They are obviously thinking they are owed something. That something is a bunch of free stuff but we have run out of free stuff.
