    I'm a blue-collar worker making something close to minimum wage. The working conditions are horrible. But lots of clueless people everywhere else tell me that if I went back to school I could do better.

    My coworkers? Some of them already have  a prestigious college background, but my facility is the only one really hiring around here. Those colleagues can't find work in the fields they went to college for. So they're here working with me.

    I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. - M Angelou
