"You can get those jobs out of high school, and she may have my job one day." I wish she had it now. She is one of so many working class poor who's struggling to take care of herself and her child. If she were CEO, she just might increase the minimum wage at her bank to make it livable - a concept Dimon, Bezos and so many billionaires are blind to. Rutger Bregman's "Utopia for Realists" (as well as Andrew Yang) proposes a living wage which has been proven to work in many countries. I hope the US under Biden/Harris will honor their commitment to taxing the rich and helping the poor.
