You're Not Supposed To

John Hawkins, Community Organizer:
Both jobs were low paying, difficult and generally unpleasant. There was never a time when I said, "Oh boy, I get to make Whoppers today," or "I can't wait to wake up a two month old baby and try to get decent pictures of him before he starts screaming his head off!" However, those were both starter jobs for people with minimal experience. The whole idea is supposed to be that you gain some basic skills and either move on or start working your way up. You're not supposed to try to support a family flipping burgers or stocking the shelves at Wal-Mart. You're also not supposed to make $15 an hour at a job where you work side by side with unreliable high school kids.
If you DID make $15 an hour would it be better or worse for you? Myself, I am thinking.

Somehow they forgot to list in his bio that John Hawkins is a total douche.

I think he skipped large parts of "The Big Book of Supposed To."
