    Not really a sign of a strong job market if it’s only very low-paying jobs that are available.

    Unfortunately there is no cure for the phone fetish. Even store/business managers aren’t immune from it.

    On the bright side, she isn’t in a VW driving down the freeway.

    “On the other hand”. In Latin, it’s on the Economist coat of arms.

    Working in a restaurant, you meet a lot of different people. I worked as a busboy one Summer, and almost everybody — customers and staff — had “issues.” Soon, I had issues, too. There’s something about that inherent servant / master relationship that makes people act odd. I have avoided restaurants ever since. When I have to go, I purposely over-tip.

    Somehow someway immigration policy, control and processing can be insightfully referenced here in a way that I am incapable of working out.

    Is this the sign that we’ve finally reached the point of more people not working than those that are working? Or is it just the first step toward the “Great Reset” when no one will own anything and everyone will be happy?

    This reminds me of the scene in The Hobbit when Bilbo Baggins first encounters Gollum and has to listen to him arguing with his dark side.

    Just finished listening to the US business news that interest rates are being raised again to curb inflation. It puzzles me that we seem to have an economic system that is structured to keep a large percentage of the workforce (and the general population) at the very bottom, ‘subsistence’ level.

    People at the top are rewarded with huge salaries and bonuses for making money for other people (keeping them also at the top) and the primary ways they achieve this is by cutting costs (e.g., low wages, cutting corners, lowering quality, creating new products) and the overall economic system encourages people buy-baby-buy and buy-now-pay-later "to keep the economy going.

    Whenever anything happens to threaten that top [sales drop, supply costs increase, forced increases in worker wages and work conditions, inflation, etc.], the solution is for businesses to cut costs more (fewer workers, longer hours, cheaper supplies); and for the overall economic system to raise interest rates, which, in turn, makes it harder for workers (whose wages have already been devalued by inflation) to buy things (food, clothing, medical care, housing, etc.).

    The people at the top may not be getting big bonuses, but they won’t be in a position to have to decide whether to pay the electric bill or buy groceries. Seems like the overall system is there to perpetuate a two-class system rather than to help people fulfill the ’American dream’.

    Hey, I have a degree in economics. Originally, I wanted to major in accounting, but my professors didn’t think that I had dynamic enough personality to be a CPA.

    Strange how yesterday’s comic was about suburban pride, and yet today’s comment section is really hinting at it.
