Just remember kids, if GDP growth is over 4% it must mean things are great all over!

One of my community colleges shares a zipcode with Microsoft. I walk past the pantry every day. It hit me almost as hard as all the active shooter warnings everywhere. The narrative all the cranky grown-ups push is these spoiled kids that have never worked and show up to job interviews wearing flip flops but I had a friend who was always late on Wednesdays because the Chipotle shift he worked to help his parents make rent overlapped with his classes.
