Friday/weekend open line

I grew up in a “traditional” family: my father worked and my mother kept house. It’s a luxury that my children did not get to enjoy.

My family has income from two full-time careers, yet we do not seem to enjoy the prosperity our parents did.

Prices go up, taxes go up, but our incomes have been relatively stable for years.

How long until we have to pull our children out of school to go to the fields to cut bananas to make ends meet?

Let us know your thoughts on this weekend’s open line.
