Modern Life

One of the people I was speaking with last night was a young man who works on the docks and who owns a small place downtown.

He noted that his father was a longshoreman who managed to comfortably raise four children on the back of his single salary. However, the son noted that while he (the son) has a decent-paying steady job, he wakes up every day feeling flat broke.

How can this be considered progress?
