Second Job

When my husband lost his job in 2008 with the market crash, he was unable to find another job although he had a Ph.D. After a couple of years of struggling I took a second job at a department store to help supplement our income. I barely earned enough to pay for a tank of gas. I had a full time job as well, but for many of the others that worked there this was their only job. 8.25 an hour is just not enough to live on for one person, never mind a family!
