A steady job and job security aren’t for everyone. Listen and learn more about working for low wages in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:15 Explanations: 3:12 Fast dialog: 16:19 Dylan: Here. Yvonne: What’s this? Dylan: It’s information about a job-training program. It’ll give you the skills you need to get steady work. Yvonne: I don’t need that. I get by with the wages I earn from this job. Dylan: You’re in a dead-end job straining to make ends meet every month. Yvonne: I’ve always landed on my feet. Dylan: But you don’t have any job security. You could be out on your ear any minute. Don’t you want a better quality of life? Yvonne: My life is fine the way it is. I may not be able to hold on to this job for long, but there will always be other ones. Dylan: I wish I had your optimism. To hear you speak, you’d think you were one of the privileged few. Yvonne: It’s all in your outlook on life. I don’t have mortgages to pay, cars to maintain, jets to fuel, and employees to support. Dylan: You’re right. You should be counting your blessings!
