Not right: A min. wage-earning single parent of two must work 50 hrs/week to escape poverty. http://t.co/QafnNscfql

Why should people have to work long hours to improve their circumstances? I thought this was America?
There are only two ways to get ahead in life, people: Depend on the government to save you, or be born to rich parents. In Cory Booker’s case, he’s used the latter to put himself in a position to push for the former. Hey, it’s not his money.
Good work if you can get it. And the hours are pretty sweet.
