So You Think YOUR Job Is Tough?

Thank goodness I have a job I like. Oh ... there might be a day when things are hectic, but those a few and far between. Just imagine if you had to do what this man is doing (and I've seen many others around New York doing the same thing) - collect cans to turn in for some meager funds to help keep a roof over his head and feed his family. And on top of that, he has to drag his daughter (granddaughter?) with him because there's no money to pay a babysitter. I'm guessing at that last statement. But don't you think she's rather be off playing with her little pals instead of walking the streets of Chinatown looking for discarded soft drink cans? But - then again - it kinda looks like she's happy just to be spending some time with him. Things are tough for a lot of people these days. If you have a job, be thankful it's not one like his.
