9 to 5 with a full hour for lunch? You got it great! Ain't Canada great,
eh?

Here in the US I get to work from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and I work through
lunch.

My employer supplies all the free warm tap water I can drink.

Coffee is $1.50 (US) for a small cup; and with a salary of a
buck-three-eighty an hour, I try to cut back on coffee so I can pay the rent
and buy batteries for my mother's pace maker.

As far as respect: My boss comes into my cube, kicks the back of my unpadded
wooden chair and yells: "fifty pages a day, or you're out on the street!"

Jane, you have it great. You don't know how bad us "yanks" have it.


Sad Regards,

Barry (over-worked, under-paid, and under-appreciated) Kieffer
