"the cost of living has driven many mothers into the work force like slaves who have no choice in how they want to raise their children"
As Conservatives LOVE the "Free Market" the fact that the standard of living has escalated so much that it requires 2 parents to work should be fantastic news!
Consumerism, 24/7 targeted marketing, and a whole host of innovative ways to market and sell have brought us here. the Free Market has decided it generally now takes 2 incomes to raise a family.
So single earner families who are struggling or in debt should 1) stop complaining and deal with the Free Market or 2) have the other person go out and get a job
