Hope you didn't accrue to much debt climbing the ladder, minimal to 0 debt plus a minimum wage job still makes one better off than 75% of the rest of the working poor. I'm making about twice minimum wage, and my wife makes about double my pay. We're under 40,000 of debt-down from 75,000. Once that's taken care of we'll be freaking rich and I'm never using another CC again. Work what you got while you can.
