Fantastic article. It tragically hits on so many truths of modern life. I find it especially tragic that the article begins with a sort of apology for your “privilege”. I have never understood and how working your butt off so that you can make enough to support your family in decent lifestyle after you have sent a big chunk of your income to the government to support those who are unable or unwilling to support themselves is a “privilege”. Who should you thank for this privilege? I don’t think you should have to apologize for working hard to go to college and build a career, and the reason the government doesn’t give you paid maternity leave is because it needs you working and generating tax review to pay for those who would call you privileged.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
