where do they live?

While waiting for my carry out order to be filled at the Chinese food place on Twelfth Street, I continued my reading of "Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting by in America." [I highly recommend the book -- it's great!]

It gave me pause as I read about Barbara Ehrenreich search for new jobs and housing... where do the people who work in this restaurant live? How do they get by, especially barely speaking English and the fact that the business is often slow. I wonder what they left behind. If their life now is better than it was.

It does make you wonder doesn't it??
I always wonder when I am in airports where everyone is going- what they are going to do when they get there- and then am amazed at how many paths are crossing at the same time.
