I don't have anything to add in way of commentary to the link I'm about to share, other than that it's a vital, compelling read about the growing difficulty in America to "get by" with a family and a job for many, many people.   There's plenty in the article itself to comment on without any prodding, so please share your thoughts below and start a conversation!  Here's the article:  Living Paycheck to Paycheck Gets Harder

You know things are bad when Wal-Mart is starting to feel the pinch from the hardship of the poor:
