Living on Paycheck to Paycheck
The American Payroll Association has finally revealed the results of their latest survey. Among the 30,600 American workers who participated in the survey, more than two-thirds said that they are trying to make ends meet using their paycheck. Of those who participated, 68% said that it is very difficult to survive if their paycheck is delayed by at least a week.
All of these are due to the increasing effect of one of the longest recessions in the history of the world.
Sadly, I can closely relate with this revelation. I have been wanting to change perspective, change life (as if I could), or explore the possibility of a career change, but it seems that the more I move farther from my existing condition, the harder life becomes.
