    Payroll taxes aren't typically considered when speaking of weekly expenses.

    This link says nothing about it being second and third job correlated.

    I'd say "try again", but I'm already bored with your repeated fails

    Earlier, you mentioned taxes as being expenses. What taxes do you mean, then?

    Of course they do. But thats not really relevant as the article suggested rent was already included in the calculations.

    Minimum wage jobs are just that. Supplemental income jobs, jobs for high school kids and college kids working to earn a few bucks. They are not and have never been meant to provide wages sufficient to provide for a family, nor should they. Perhaps if people really cared about those things there would be a greater emphasis on creating more industry and real middle income jobs, not trying to fix the economy and employment situation by a career as a fry cook.

    And more seriously, it is almost impossible to judge just from the menu. Serving size is just one variable that is not listed but would need to be to really judge.
    Sweet potato's and baked beans are awesome, you damned yankee!

    Looks like a normal menu to me. Three meals a day with snacks. No one's starving with that menu.
    And this is breaking news? What a joke.

    As I said to apdst, that really doesn't matter. Getting one check in April doesn't help in October.
