A number of restaurant companies (e.g. Darden) have announced that they can't afford health care for employees in the cut-throat, low-margin restaurant industry. Solution: cut work hours to 30/week so they are part-time.

The fact of the matter is Americans cannot afford to eat out as much as they do.... financially or nutritionally.

Americans cannot afford the entertainemnt empire it is supporting either.

Americans cannot afford allllllll kinds of things they THOUGHT they could afford.

Now that the rest of the world has gotten back into the manufacturing game and our middle class wages must compete with foreign labor, it's a whole new ballgame. Ain't no more home field advantage to being an American.

Point n' blame is, uh, pointless.
