Just had to share this article

Maybe this speaks to the source of some of the problems with our economy:

I find the following especially telling/ironic:

“Only at a corporate law firm would the managers underestimate employees’ interest in taking a year off from the grind for what most of America would consider a small fortune. [$80,000 to take the year off!]

Not everyone could cover monthly living expenses on a third of one’s pay…”

Wow. $80k for the year off. I’d take that offer faster than the rate of electrons quantum tunnel. Which is to say: So. Fast.
