  • sk_tennyson, Wal-Mart is not hiring. And you are wrong, any job is not better than no job. If you have to make X amount to keep your home, but you are spending all your time working for much less without the time to look for a "Good Job" to provide for your family, that is not better. That is getting yourself in deeper.
