View Diary: Compassionate conservatism? An open letter to Newt Gingrich from the child of a janitor (191 comments)

  •  I'm exhausted as a 20-something college student (6+ / 0-)

    who is partially white-collar.

    Unlike Gingrich, I have no pretensions that it's easy to work at 5 or 6 am cleaning shit and fixing shit. That same "meritocracy" crowd thinks that low-paid, exhausted retail people have easy jobs, too. Maybe easier than a janitor, (I only can speak for one of the two) but I would consider both to be generally draining ways to live, for those who aren't concerned with long lifespans.
