The article in question is this one.

It's about a woman who, working FOUR JOBS just to make ends meet, slept in her car in a parking lot where she worked. As far as this is concerned, all I have to say is "Welcome to the end result of Reaganomics".

The woman mistakenly left a gas can in the car as she slept. Chances are she was too fatigued to give a damn about anything else going on around her and just wanted to get some rest before another shift at one of her four shit wage jobs.

So, with that said, what will it take to restore some measure of sanity when it comes to employment? I'd also like to know what it will take to fucking educate some people on what it is to be poor, because I'm sure as fuck getting tired of seeing people call the poor and unemployed lazy as I've seen in the comment section of this article.

To be blunt, I'm sure many of these conservative posters are in the same shape as the rest of us, but they're either too proud or too willfully stupid to admit it. Because they could just as easily become a casualty of this Walmart economy as the rest of us, politics be damned.

May this woman rest in peace.

See you around,

Homer

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
